Scott Bolzan went to work on December 17, 2008, like any other Wednesday. By that afternoon, he'd lost every memory of his past.

Awakening in a hospital with no memory of who he was or how he got there, the forty-six-year-old didn't know that the petite blonde at his side was his wife of twenty-four years, Joan--or even what a wife was. He couldn't remember the births of his two young-adult children, the daughter he'd lost, his time as an offensive lineman for the NFL's Cleveland Browns, or his flourishing aviation career.

Scott's life and the lives of everyone who loved him were forever changed when he slipped, hit his head, and lost consciousness in his office bathroom, suffering one of the most severe cases of permanent retrograde amnesia on record. With heartrending honesty and no shortage of humor, the Bolzans share their remarkable journey as Scott navigates his way through a now-unfamiliar world. The challenges are initially overwhelming: Scott's debilitating headaches, his relearning of social etiquette (taking cues from The Sopranos!), Joan's grief over the loss of the man she married and their shared history, the financial burden of Scott's lost income, his mounting medical bills, and the agony of their twenty-year-old son's struggles with drug addiction.

But remarkably, My Life, Deleted is above all else a celebration of extraordinary perseverance, and of the enduring love that emerges when we are most tested. Scott learns to trust his intuition in a way few people ever will, while Joan taps into a well of patience and resourcefulness she didn't know she had. Throughout it all, what unfolds--against all odds--is an enviable romance as Scott and Joan fall in love all over again.

Both gut-wrenching and brimming with optimism, the Bolzans' captivating story makes a powerful statement about commitment--and the possibility of finding extraordinary opportunity in life's greatest challenges.
