Left Neglected- Lisa Genova

Sarah is a high flying business woman who juggles motherhood as well as her career. Everything is organised to the last minute and she never has a spare moment between answering emails, making calls and attending parent/teacher meetings. One day she loses concentration while driving and has an accident. The result of which is hemispatial neglect; a lack of awareness of her lefthand side and anything on her left.

This is a fascinating story, which describes a complex medical condition and how it effects an individual and their family. It is a condition which I studied as part of my degree so I found it really interesting to read about in a fictional situation but putting more flesh on the factual bones I learned
