About the Book
Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems besides the point now.
Maybe that was always besides the point.
Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.
When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.
That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .
Is that what she’s supposed to do?
Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened? (From Goodreads.com)
Why I’m Waiting
I gotta tell you, I didn’t even look at the synopsis on this one before putting it on my TBR list. There is no doubt Rainbow Rowell is on of my favorite authors, and I would just as happily read her grocery list as I would E&P or Fangirl.
But I’ve got to say, the premise is FASCINATING! Life is tough and having a chance to look back on that life, the choices you made, and rediscover why it is you chose it in the first place — well, let’s say I’m quite interesting in seeing how it all plays out.
