About A Way Back To You:
This is the most well written book I have read. We meet Annabell, a young mom to 3 kids and recent widow, who is dealing with life without her husband. Her story makes me cry as I realize some days we are surviving but not really living our lives to the fullest. After one challenging day, a friend offers to take her kids for the weekend and sends her to her moms. When she wakes up in her teenage bedroom, she is no longer the mom in her 30’s and is reliving a day as her 16 year old self.
High School was difficult enough for most people, but to have to deal with it as a teenager with the mind of an adult who knows what happens next is even harder. Annie has hope in seeing her husband again, as a 24 year old man living across town. She is desperate to see him again, but life is more complicated and seems to be refusing her the chance. The other debate is what changes does she make, and will it affect her future?
Way Back To You is a time travel book that THANKFULLY doesn’t end with it all being just a dream. Its a realistic book that makes you think, what if? I always talk about getting to watch the movie of our lives after we die. I would love to see my memories from someone else’s perspective, and find this book a refreshing tale to tell.
Here is an excerpt if you are interested. Its one of my favorites:
If this book were a movie, it would be rated PG.
