synopsis: Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble; it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.
Maybe that was always beside 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 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?
I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while now and I finally got to because of the popsugar challenge. This fulfilled the task a paat goodreads choice award winner. This novel won in 2014. Rainbow Rowell aways creates realistic characters. Iiked Georgie and the struggle she went through. Even though I’m not married I could relate to wanting to go back and fix things. I was afraid that Neal and Georgie were going to get divorced. Georgie’s relationship with Seth was interesting too. They seemed like they were going to become a couple but I am glad that Georgie stayed with Neal. Neal and her are total opposites but that’s what I think makes their relationship work.
