I LOVED this book! It is a great read, with a fascinating premise. At first I had trouble imagining a Christian fiction book on the topic of time travel, but then it hit me: in God, time is meaningless. Can he use the human notion of time for his purposes? This book imagines such a thing, with three very interesting lives.

This is one of the best books I've ever read!

Three people get to go back in time and change one decision. Although you might think at several points you know how the book will end, there are a lot of surprises. The writing is surprisingly sensitive and thoughtful to the nuances of people's decisions.

I would whole-heartedly recommend this book to ANYONE.

My husband and I both read this one! We both really enjoyed it.
It is very hard to put down once you start so don't start it too late at night unless you don't need any sleep.

Book that deals with the lifelong results of making decisions. Three people win a lottery, not for money but for the chance of a lifetime, the chance to go back and do it all over again - or the chance to change the course of their lives.

Good one!

A Christy-award winning novel!

Three winners of the new Time Lottery are granted a chance to go back in time and relive one decisive moment. In one hour of clarity, they are given the ultimate choice: to change their personal history and stay in the past, reliving their lives from that point, or to return to the future a richer person from the experience.

And the Time Lottery's marketing whiz Alexander MacMillian has his own what-if question to answer. It involves a murder and a little boy.

A great read. Well worth the time!

This is a good story, however it is very Christian-based. The overall theme is that there are no random occurrences, that everything is part of God's plan. If you enjoy Christian fiction, you will enjoy this.

What an interesting story. Not only is this book a great read, it is also thought-provoking. I think it would be an excellent choice for a novel to use in a reading circle or literary club.

An interesting premise...what would you change if you could go back in your past. The book is definitely written from a Christian perspective, but not overbearing or preachy. Enjoyable and thought provoking.

This has to be the absolute BEST book that I have read in a long time! The storyline is unusual and so intriguing that you just can't put this book down until done reading! I carried this book with me all over until I
finally reached the end. Loved it....loved it.....loved it!!! Kudos to Nancy Moser for such a wonderfully well-written and exciting book! 10 stars!!!

This book was almost impossible to put down! It didn't bog you down in the scientific aspect of the unexplainable, so it is an easy poolside read. The writer not only made me wonder what part of my life I'd like to do-over, but it made me wonder if I'd really want to choose a do-over at all. Sometimes the best thing is NOT knowing. Captivating!

Excellent book - really made me stop and think about where I would go back and do things differently if given the opportunity. I enjoyed how all the character's lives intersected and I liked all the characters with the exception of the one I wasn't supposed to like! Good read and highly recommended.

Great Book - make one think. What if you could go back in time and change the way you lived an event or certain period of your life? Would you? Should you?

Interesting time travel. A new time travel opportunity is available to lottery participants. The winners can travel to a specific time in their past to redo mistakes or make amends. Then either return to present or live their life from the 'travel point'.
Thought provoking as to where I would go and what would I change. Was a quick and fun read and I went to bed wondering. We could all use a second chance at something.

This is an interesting premise, a way to return to the past to undo a mistake or have a 2nd chance. If you buy the premise then you will enjoy the book. Basically it tells how God can & does use everything & anything in our lives to teach us what He wants us to know & to bring us closer to Himself. 3 people are offered to go back into their own lives--a doctor, a wife, a murdered. What happens to each is an interesting tale in itself.

Nancy Moser is a great writer. Her stories are easy to relate to, believable and real. She always showcases God and His omnipotence. Always great reading so much so that you don't want to put it down. I've read several of her books and they are ALL wonderful.

A fascinating plot and well developed story. I liked this book a lot. What a concept going back in time and revisiting a time in your life where you could have a "do over". Each of these characters have issues to revisit and evaluate. Very well written with a strong Christian message. This is one of my new favorite authors.
