This was a very intriguing story and I was excited to get an advanced copy to read and review. I found the characters to be compelling, but I did find parts of the story hard to track (as is any good story with time travel). It’s a fascinating question - could you let a horrific event occur if changing it would cost you your family? Maria is a successful psychiatrist with a husband she loves, two daughters, and a son on the way. She finds herself back in her 17 year old body confused and desperate to get back to her children. Amazingly she finds several others who are “repeaters” and help her get some sort of grasp on what is happening. Eventually she realizes her purpose but is told if she saves the young life she was sent back to save she will lose her husband and her children will not be hers. It’s an impossible decision, but one she must make. I found the writing to be excellent and a very unique debut novel.
