Sarah Nickerson is like any other career-driven supermom in
Welmont, the affluent Boston suburb where she leads a hectic
but charmed life with her husband Bob, faithful nanny, and
three children—Lucy, Charlie, and nine-month-old Linus.
Between recruiting the best and brightest minds as the vice
president of human resources at Berkley Consulting;
shuttling the kids to soccer, day care, and piano lessons;
convincing her son’s teacher that he may not, in fact, have
ADD; and making it home in time for dinner, it’s a wonder
this over-scheduled, over-achieving Harvard graduate has
time to breathe.
A self-confessed balloon about to burst, Sarah miraculously
manages every minute of her life like an air traffic
controller. Until one fateful day, while driving to work and
trying to make a phone call, she looks away from the road
for one second too long. In the blink of an eye, all the
rapidly moving parts of her jam-packed life come to a
A traumatic brain injury completely erases the left side of
her world, and for once, Sarah 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.
Now, as she wills herself to regain her independence and
heal, Sarah must learn that her real destiny—her new, true
life—may in fact lie far from the world of conference calls
and spreadsheets. And that a happiness and peace greater
than all the success in the world is close within reach, if
only she slows down long enough to notice.
