by Rainbow Rowell
Georgie McCool loves her job as a television writer. She writes for a hit show with her best friend from college. What could be better?
Well, if they could sell their own original series to a network, that would be better. When that exact opportunity presents itself, Georgie refuses to squander it, no matter what the cost. Even if it means skipping Christmas in Omaha with her husband’s family.
Of course, skipping that trip isn’t such a great idea. Her marriage to Neal is already strained. As the holiday nears, Georgie is faced with the reality of her situation: work vs. marriage. Even the shrewdest reader might be surprised by Georgie’s choice.
I have to say that this is Rowell’s worst novel. The telephone/time machine gimmick just doesn’t work for me.
