Sarah Winslow wakes up with a terrible hangover... and a kid in her boyfriend's bed. She makes the horrifying discovery that, due to a head injury, it's not a hangover. She's got memory loss. Overnight, five years have disappeared, and she's no longer the hard-living, fast-track, ad executive party girl she thinks she is. Now, she's the unemployed, pudgy, married, stay-at-home-mom of three kids under five, including twins.

As she slowly pieces together the mystery of how her dreams and aspirations could have disintegrated so completely in five short years, she finds herself utterly failing to manage this life she can't imagine choosing. When Sarah meets the man of her dreams, she realizes she's got to make a choice: Does she follow her bliss and "do-over" her life? Or does the Sarah she's forgotten hold the answers to how she got here... and how she can stay?
