In settling her mother's affairs, Luna finds more questions than answers, until something impossible and magical happens....
Luna meets her mother as a young woman back in the summer of 1977. If she can truly travel back in time, she can change things. But in order to save her mother's life, will she have to sacrifice her own?

GREAT STORY - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I read this book and enjoyed the story so much I wanted it read to me. It took me a couple of chapters to get use to the NY accents and the narrator, but overall it was great. It gets straight into the plot which is sharp and precise. In the UK tormented mother dies, daughters to go to NY to settle some business and from then its flash backs to the 70's with her daugther realising she's meeting her mother as a teenager. Is it possible for the daughter to change the events of the past for a happier ending?? Its such any easy listen to and grabs your attention. Its one of those ... What's Going to Happen Next ... stories which hooks you

Genius

One of my favourite films is frequency as well as Groundhog Day and sliding doors so alternate reality stories always intrigue me. This one is genius. One of the best I have read in a long time and certainly Rowan Coleman's best yet. It just has to be a film, surely! Well done Missus! X

Compelling and engaging

Plan to listen to this when you have a lot of time available because you won't want to even pause it. It draws you in with its intriguing characters and unexpected shifts. Another excellent recommendation from Marian Keyes.
