What Alice Forgot, by Liane Moriarty
After a whack on the noggin at the gym, Alice forgot ten pretty important years of her life; the years when her three children were born, her marriage fell apart, her sister fought a losing battle with fertility, and she became a completely different person. The book deals with the infertility issue with empathy, the way that the accretion of bad in a marriage can overcome the good with insight, and the transition from free spirit to supermom with humor. Quite a lovely book.
