Summary
Christine wakes each morning unaware of who she is and unable to recognize the stranger in her bed. Prompted by her doctor, Christine writes a journal about her life and reads it each morning. And as fragments of her memory return, she uncovers the shocking reality of what triggered her condition
Summary
An accident in her 20s severely damaged her memory, so although Christine Lucas is now 47, she doesn't recall anything that has happened since the accident. Each morning, her husband has to tell her who she is, and who he is. But each morning after he leaves for work, she receives a phone call and is prompted by a doctor to retrieve her secret journal. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
