I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway!

This one was a pretty quick read with a rather interesting premise. We follow Mike - a young(ish) school teacher - who, on his way home, discovers a young kid drowning. Immediately Mike jumps in and rescues the child only...to find himself whisked away from this earth entirely.

He's immediately told that he tried (and succeeded) to drown himself but they (Gabriel/heaven) were willing to cut him a deal.

He would get to relive five days of his life

I received this book in exchange for a review of it. I enjoyed this story. It was interesting and thought provoking. I am fairly certain that if this were to happen in real life, it wouldn't have ended so happily. I'm glad it ended how it did though.

Received this for a giveaway!!

This was in the same vein as What Dreams May Come, or The 5 People You Meet In Heaven. A middle aged high-schools teacher saves a drowning boy and drowns himself in the process. When he arrives in heaven the angel Gabriel informs him he can pick ANY 5 DAYS he wishes to relive..... Will he right wrongs, Will he waste thus opportunity, Will he make the right choice?????

GREAT READ! Perfect start for the new year!

I won this book thru this site and thoroughly enjoyed it. Once started I didn't want to stop. It makes you think a lot about what days you would pick if given the chance to revisit 5 days. Makes you realize that the days you pick will also affect the outcome of your life in the end. Very thought provoking. One of those books that once finished still has you thinking about it.

Good story

I like the concept of this story. It is written well, and the five days chosen make sense with the characters reasoning. It makes you think which ones you would choose.

I received this book free from GoodReads.

A well done look at which 5 days you would relive if given the chance. What would you choose to do?

I received this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway but the opinions expressed are solely my own.

If you could relive any 5 days, what would you choose? Thought provoking! The book was a quick read on a plane. As I was reading, I was considering what days I would choose.
