About this item


Book Synopsis

Sliding Doors meets Life After Life in Sarah Adlakha's story about a wife and mother who is given the chance to start over at the risk of losing everything she loves.

A second chance is the last thing she wants.

When thirty-nine year old Maria Forssmann wakes up in her seventeen-year-old body, she doesn't know how she got there. All she does know is she has to get back: to her home in Bienville, Mississippi, to her job as a successful psychiatrist and, most importantly, to her husband, daughters, and unborn son.

But she also knows that, in only a few weeks, a devastating tragedy will strike her husband, a tragedy that will lead to their meeting each other.

Can she change time and still keep what it's given her?

Exploring the responsibilities love lays on us, the complicated burdens of motherhood, and the rippling impact of our choices, She Wouldn't Change a Thing is a dazzling debut from a bright new voice.

Review Quotes

"For me, a mind-bending story only works if its characters are real and relatable. Sarah Adlakha gets it exactly right in She Wouldn't Change a Thing. Her protagonist, faced with impossible, life altering choices, will keep the reader awake at night wondering 'what would I do?'" --Diane Chamberlain, New York Times bestselling author of Big Lies in a Small Town

"A thrilling, breathtaking, heartbreaking story. In this dazzling debut novel, Sarah Adlahka has crafted a world where the magical not only seems possible, but probable, and where the complicated, complex characters, and the often untenable decisions they're forced to make, will haunt you long after the last sentence." --Rita Woods, author of Remembrance

"Book clubs rejoice! She Wouldn't Change a Thing is your next selection. It begins as devastatingly realistic, and evolves into simply... devastating.

Are you sure? Read this - and then decide." --Hank Phillippi Ryan, USA Today bestselling author of Her Perfect Life

She Wouldn't Change a Thing is a story that will break your heart into smithereens, infuse your spirit with hope, and stay with you long after you've turned the final page." --Emily Colin, New York Times bestselling author of The Memory Thief

"She Wouldn't Change a Thing is a complex, intelligent, psychological thriller whose unexpected twists and turns gripped me from start to finish.

A captivating debut that makes us question our very reality." --Serena Burdick, bestselling author of The Girls with No Names

"Adlakha takes the classic 'what if?' tale and grounds it in a premise that is so outrageous, yet so solidly believable, I blew through it in 24 hours, because I had to know what happened next.

Wow. I'm not sure where to start with this one. The concept of overlapping lives, people going back in time to change things and all the interlocking lives is immense and beautiful. The last chapter drew an audible gasp from me at just how intertwined the characters' lives are. No matter where in time. I'll be thinking on this one for awhile. I received a copy of the book from NetGalley for review.
