I first read this book circa 2003/2004 and at the time I recall feeling that it was the best thing I'd ever read. Time and some good prescription drugs have made me realise that actually, it was just an ok book. I will still give it four stars just for making me feel so good at the time. Plus I wrote to Harlequin telling them how wonderful I thought the book was ffs, so I can hardly give it an average score now can I? Sigh... love you Ms Sala.

Sweet verging on sappy story about Mary whose husband and daughter were killed in a car accident. She is able to do the day all over again and finds out that God had a reason for having go back and then fast forward to the present. She doesn't remember a lot, some of it comes to her bits and pieces, but with the past 6 years without them and then having them again, she's a stronger different woman and is able to help in a tragedy that takes place in her new present time. Huh?!? These time travel ...more
Wow What A Great Story

If you could turn the hands of time back and could do it over again would and would you do it differently.
Mary Faith got that chance and did she mad right where there was wrong.
This story has you thinking about life and what could happen in a blink of an eye.
Beautiful story loved it.
Sharon Sala dose again A top notch story that has you turning the pages till the end then saying man that wS a great book.

Yea it's one of those books that set your mood. But shouldn't every book. While I was reading this I really felt like I was there watching the whole thing. Books like this are hard to find. It was easy to read,and easy to get into. I wasn't wondering "what I'll do today" while I was reading it. It's a must read! I loved it. Period.

Su mayor don fue el haberme hecho experimentar los sentimientos y emociones de sus protagonistas. Pero tiene muchos puntos flacos. La relación romántica es "demasiado" melosa... es más inverosímil que la idea de volver a un punto del pasado y arreglar los errores.

It has been a long time since I've read this but I remember that I thought it was one of the very best books I read that year.
