Left Neglected by Lisa Genova

Written by the same author as Still Alice, Left Neglected is about Sarah, an 60-80 hours/week full-time working mother of three young children who multi-tasks her way through life. Until one day as she's driving and distracted and totals her car. She's left with a brain injury that leaves her unaware of her left side. She has to learn to walk, dress and feed herself, and compensate for her injury.

I found Left Neglected to be about more than the brain injury part of the story. It's about slowing down, taking a step back, and evaluating what kind of life we want to live. A very fast read, informative, and thoughtful.
