Rating: 4 out of 5.

Okay, wow. I’m a little all over the place with this one! This was truly a wonderful story, but it broke my brain a bit! Wrapping my head around the twists and connections through the time travel was amazing, and it had me dropping my jaw at multiple moments!

This story broke my heart a bit. I didn’t expect that, and I definitely wasn’t prepared for it. The choices given to the characters in this story are heavy and while I can’t say impossible, they are truly awful to consider. I can’t say impossible because a character in the story lets us know that no choice is truly impossible 🙂

So, I highly recommend this book that I thought was going to be a fun journey back in time and turned into an impactful, meaningful, heartfelt story! It was very well written, and I flew through the pages!

Sliding Doors meets Life After Life in Sarah Adlakha’s story about a wife and mother who is given the chance to start over at the risk of losing everything she loves.

A second chance is the last thing she wants.

When thirty-nine year old Maria Forssmann wakes up in her seventeen-year-old body, she doesn’t know how she got there. All she does know is she has to get back: to her home in Bienville, Mississippi, to her job as a successful psychiatrist and, most importantly, to her husband, daughters, and unborn son.

But she also knows that, in only a few weeks, a devastating tragedy will strike her husband, a tragedy that will lead to their meeting each other.

Can she change time and still keep what it’s given her?

Exploring the responsibilities love lays on us, the complicated burdens of motherhood, and the rippling impact of our choices, She Wouldn’t Change a Thing is a dazzling debut from a bright new voice.
