What if you could do it all over again?
Wright is pretty sure her husband doesn't love her anymore. She and Max
used to be the perfect couple, but the pressures of work and kids have
pulled them in opposite directions. Now , Jen is full of "what if"
questions about whether her bland, suburban existence is all she was
ever destined for.
When a terrible accident sends Jen into a
coma, she is able to see what her life could have been if she had run
off to Australia with the handsome, dangerous man she met on vacation,
or if she had stayed with her workaholic college boyfriend. Would she
ever have loved another child as much as she loves her daughters? Could
she have become rich? More than anything, Jen wants to do the right
thing for her family. But what she discovers may leave her with even
more questions about the choices she made, and no easy answers about
what to do next.
Just reading that synopsis I was hooked, I could relate to this book in so many ways! I'm always imagining what my life could have been if I chose one path vs another.
With her marriage on the rocks, Jennifer is hurt that her husband, Max, doesn't treat her as he first did at the beginning of their relationship/marriage. She senses that Max is growing close and paying more attention to one of his coworkers. One night after a fight, Jennifer runs off and sadly gets in a car accident which sends her into a coma.
In this coma, she finds 3 different tunnels: each to boys that could have been. These individual relationships were ended on account of reasons, but in the coma she uncovers the outcome of the relationship had she stayed. The first gentleman, Aidan, being a handsome guy that she finds wildly attractive who she met on vacation. The second, Tim, was a guy in college who ended up inventing this program which led her to live a very wealthy life. Finally, there was Steve who she met when she was having appliance issues at her apartment. Each of these different tunnels led her to experience different things: children, wealth, loneliness, poverty, love, tears, happiness, and everything in between.
This book had me on edge at times, I kept finding myself reading more and more every night just to see where the tunnels would lead her. I thought this was a well written book in which the story flowed nicely. It transitioned from the tunnels to present day life very well and the stories about each guy was very easy to follow. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun read!
