57. Replay

By Ken Grimwood
Rated 5 Stars
From:  Library

This was a re read for me.  I first read it about 5 years ago and recently someone on one of the groups mentioned they were reading it and I decided it would make a nice change of pace for me to "Replay" for myself.

LIBRARY SUMMARY:  The possibility of traveling back in time to relive one's life has long fascinated science fiction writers. Without a single gesture toward an explanation, this mainstream novel recounts the story of a man and a woman mysteriously given the ability to live their lives over. Each dies in 1988 only to awaken as a teenager in 1963 with adult knowledge and wisdom intact and the ability to make a new set of choices. Different spouses, lovers, children, careers, await them in each go-round of the past 25 years, as well as slightly altered versions of world events. Their deep commitment to one another continues through the centuries of their many lifetimes. This delightful and completely engrossing story will appeal to a wide variety of readers
