Blog Tour: Left Neglected
Sarah Nickerson isn't like any other working mom. Sarah is an overachiever. She works like 80 hours a week and has a nanny and has to multi-task from 5 am to 11 pm to make it through her day. She has a high profile job that is front and center of her life. It isn't until she gets into a car accident because of that multi-tasking that her life changes drastically.
As a mom, I had a hard time with Sarah. Yes, I wanted to praise her as a woman, but as a mom I wanted to slap her up side the head. After she got in the accident and she suffers from a brain injury and a condition known as Left Neglect she got her priorities straight. I found the concept of Left Neglect to be fascinating. There was one point when she was frustrated with her husband and she had him describe the whole room to him so he did and then she asked him to describe the other half and he's like there is no other half, I think it help him and the reader understand what it was like.
Overall I thought this was a good book. At times I thought it got a little slow, but in the end it was worth it.
