What do an Vanessa, David and Lane have in common? In this sequel to "Time Lottery", they are the next three people chosen to go back into time for a second chance.

While reading both this book and "Time Lottery", something just bothered me about both, even though I enjoyed reading them. Then last night, it hit me....the Bible says "And as it is appointed for men to die once...." (Hebs. 9:27 NKJV), how can someone continue to live in the past while their body here dies? I realize it's just a fict

I enjoyed book one in this series but was surprised I thought this book was even better than the first. A few people are given a second chance at life.

“Can David Stancowsky stop the love of his life from dying?”
“Will Vanessa Caldwell break the patterns of dysfunction before she makes a terrible mistake?”

“Why does Hollywood A-lister Lane Holloway want to return home?”

While Time Lottery spokesman Alexander MacMillan manages the increasingly dangerous paparazzi on the outside, the contestants face

This is the 2nd book in to Time Lottery. I really like it too. It is still giving 3 people a chance to change their lives and boy did they learn a thing or two this time. Also, it gave families an opportunity in the "here and now" to really evaulate what they may have done differently or what they could do differently. Like I said a good book!!

It's been a while since I read the first one, but it came back pretty quickly (without the mind numbing recap some books offer). Since this was about 3 new journeys, reading the first isn't necessary to enjoying this story.

I read the first one many years ago. This is the second one and because it had been so long for me I was unable to remember much about the first one.

I still enjoyed this book.

People bought tickets to be able to travel back in time for a week to anytime in their life. They chould choise to stay in the past or come back after a week.
Nothing would change in the future if they stayed in the past.

Person 1 - a famous actress went back in time to before she was famous
Person 2 - went back to before hi

Love, love, love this book!!! It was such a well done thing on exploring the path not taken. I loved how their lives intertwined, and it was just insanely interesting. I couldn't quit thinking about the book. And if I had a week to decide the week I wanted to go back and "do over".

Great job! Made my imagination go wild!!

i really enjoyed this's basically a christian's a continuation of time lottery,which is also a very good read.
they have a lottery and pick three winners to go back in time to find out what would happen if they had made a different decision. they get to pick what time they want to go back to. they also get to decide if they want to stay where they go back to, in that case their body dies in the present. or they can return to the present and resume they life they originally had.

I loved this book, just as much (if not more) than the first one. I find it very thought-provoking. If I was able to travel back to an earlier time, which one would I choose? What would I do differently? And would I stay or return to the present?

Although time travel is yet only fictional, this book also makes me consider what God is leading me toward now and in the future. What gifts can I still use? As long as one is alive, it is not too late.

This book is a keeper. It shows that we are all human, no matter what our walk in life. As for myself, I really wouldn't desire to go back in time, as there isn't anything I would want to change. At least, nothing I can think of right now. But to have the opportunity to do so for some people would be very important.

I liked the premise of the book. The author did a good job with it. I liked this one almost better than the first book. If you haven't read the book, you really should.

Good book but liked the first one, Time Lottery, better. Makes you wonder about your past and what you would choose differently.
