A young woman engaged to be married suddenly finds herself with amnesia -- unable to remember anything from her 'former' life, including her fiancé. As she seeks to rediscover her identity, she slowly emerges as someone totally different from her previous self (see Milan Kundera's book, 'Identity'). Stripped of memories, masks, learned behavior and other protective mechanisms, and in the theory of muscle memory, the heart -- being the strongest muscle of all -- never forgets what truly matters! My personal belief in this matter is that Alzheimer and dementia patients, painful at it may seen to loved ones, never forget -- they just cannot easily retrieve and express those memories. That is what I liked about this book -- it's a little sad, but interwoven with hope... that the heart remembers!
