What I Thought I Knew: A Memoir - Alice Eve Cohen This book is amazing! When I looked at it in the bookstore, I thought, "This looks frivolous but I must buy it." Then I stayed up late into the night reading the whole thing.

It's the true story of a woman named Alice. She was 44 years old, infertile, and even if she could conceive a child she would not be able to carry it to term because of a deformed uterus. But all that is OK, because she has a child by adoption and an adoring boyfriend, and she is happy with her family and her life. Then she starts to feel tired and sick and her abdomen feels swollen. Her gynecologist examines her and tells her it is early menopause. Do you see where this story is going? Even if you do, you will never be able to predict the incredible things that happen next. You may not agree with all of Alice's decisions, but you will be riveted by her incredible story and you will root for her. It was like a thriller in that I couldn't put it down; I had to know what would happen next.
