Sarah Nickerson, like any other working mom, is busy trying to have
it all. One morning while racing to work and distracted by her cell
phone, she looks away from the road for one second too long. In
that blink of an eye, all the rapidly moving parts of her
over-scheduled life come to a screeching halt. After a brain injury
steals her awareness of everything on her left side, Sarah must
retrain her mind to perceive the world as a whole. In so doing, she
also learns how to pay attention to the people and parts of her
life that matter most.
In this powerful and poignant "New York Times "bestseller, Lisa
Genova explores what can happen when we are forced to change our
perception of everything around us. "Left Neglected "is an
unforgettable story about finding abundance in the most difficult
of circumstances, learning to pay attention to the details, and
nourishing what truly matters.
