Browsing Area Book of the Week, March 11, 2013.

Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson.  Library Call Number: PR6123.A884B44 2011.
          Every day, Christine Lucas wakes up and doesn’t know her name or the name of the man in bed next to her.  She has no memories at all until he tells her he’s her husband, Ben, that they are married and that she’s had a car accident that has damaged her brain’s ability to remember. She has been this way for a number of years, ever since the accident.   But, lately, each day after Ben goes to work, Christine gets a phone call from a man who says he’s her doctor, who tells her to look for a journal she is keeping hidden in the closet.  The journal contains all the pages she has written in the course of days past, where she is attempting to recollect and recreate her life.  There are glimpses of friends and family in the journal, shadows of people who might once have been important in her life, although she can’t remember them.  And written in the front cover are three unsettling words: Don’t trust Ben.
