Publisher's Summary

Told with Beth Harbison's wit and warmth, If I Could Turn Back Time is the fantasy of every woman who has ever thought, If I could go back in time, knowing what I know now, I'd do things so differently...
Thirty-seven-year-old Ramie Phillips has led a very successful life. She made her fortune, and now she hobnobs with the very rich and occasionally the semifamous, and she enjoys luxuries she only dreamed of as a middle-class kid growing up in Potomac, Maryland. But despite it all, she can't ignore the fact that she isn't necessarily happy. In fact lately Ramie has begun to feel more than a little empty.
On a boat with friends off the Florida coast, she tries to fight her feelings of discontent with steel will and hard liquor. No one even notices as she gets up and goes to the diving board and dives off....
Suddenly Ramie is waking up, straining to understand a voice calling in the distance.... It's her mother: "Wake up! You're going to be late for school again. I'm not writing a note this time...."
Ramie finds herself back on the eve of her 18th birthday, with a second chance to see the people she's lost and change the choices she regrets. How did she get back here? Has she gone off the deep end? Is she really back in time? Above all she'll have to answer the question that no one else can: What it is that she really wants from the past and for her future?

Another Disappointment

I managed to convince everyone to take a chance on "Driving With the Top Down;" one of the authors previous books. Well, we all loved it; even the old man. This is the second selection of the author's we've tried since we finished that one and they've both been wasted credits. A very slow beginning didn't exactly set up the crux of the story very well and I gave it up way before the story was finished. Do yourself a favor and save yourself the bother of returning it.

Great story and Narrator

Have you listened to any of Orlagh Cassidy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Orlagh Cassidy is perfect for Beth Harbison books. Every time I start a new book by Harbison, it's like being reunited with an old friend.

Any additional comments?

Great story, as usual from Harbison!
