Left Neglected by Lisa Genova

January 2011

LEFT NEGLECTED is by Lisa Genova, who many of you will remember as the author of STILL ALICE,a favorite book of mine from two years ago. In fact, it was one of my first Bets On Picks, making Lisa Genova our first Bets On repeat author. LEFT NEGLECTED is just as brilliant. In it, Sarah Nickerson had a busy life --- a husband, three kids (one a baby), a high-powered job, and a long commute where she always tried to fit in one more thing. Well, she’s flying down the Mass Pike headed to work one morning multitasking, making a call on her cell phone, when she looks up and sees a string of red lights in front of her --- stopped traffic. She cannot stop and rolls her car.

THE TEMPLAR SALVATION is Raymond Khoury’s highly anticipated follow-up to his much-talked-about debut, THE LAST TEMPLAR.

Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law --- including the ones sworn to uphold it --- in TREACHERY IN DEATH.

Left Neglected by Lisa Genova

A traumatic brain injury completely erases the left side of Sarah's world, and for once, she relinquishes control to those around her, including her formerly absent mother. Without the ability to even floss her own teeth, she struggles to find answers about her past and her uncertain future.
