For fans of One Day, What Alice Forgot, and the hit film Sliding Doors comes an absorbing, surprising debut novel about a young woman who, after an accident, get a second chance at life, just not the one he remembers.

Rachel Wiltshire has everything she's ever wanted: a close group of friends, a handsome boyfriend, and acceptance to the journalism program at a top-choice college. But one fateful evening, tragedy tears her world apart.

Five years later, Rachel returns home for the first time to celebrate her best friend's wedding. Still coping with grief, she can't stop thinking about the bright future she almost had, if only that one night had gone differently. But when a sudden fall lands her in the hospital, Rachel wakes to find that her life has completely changed. Now she has her dream job as a writer and a stylish apartment, but the people she loves most are not the way she remembers them. Unable to trust her own recollections, Rachel tries to piece together what really happened, and not even she can predict the astonishing truth.

A poignant and gentle novel about a girl who survives a tragic accident as a teen, but loses her best friend. Years later, while she is still dealing with residual physical and emotional effects of the accident, she suddenly and inexplicably finds herself in a world where everyone around her remembers a different version of the past several years, and her best friend is miraculously alive--has she lost her mind, or has everyone around her lost theirs? This book favorably evoked Hallmark movies for me, and finishing it as we approach the holidays was perfect timing!
