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.


She wouldn’t change a thing is a book that falls neatly into the category of time traveling fiction. If you a fan of freaky Friday situations with a more series tone, this might be the book for you. The setup is simple we have a 39-year-old wife and professional on the cusp of her 40th birthday, ready to deliver her 3rd child into the world. She knows she was having a boy but has kept the name a very closely guarded secret. One day some very convoluted events unfold after a very odd meeting with a new client. The next thing she knows, she wakes up as her 17-year-old self desperate to get back to her husband and children. She to fulfill a purpose and may not be the only one who has been in this situation. What unfolds is a page-turning story that will raise some powerful questions about the universe, spirituality, faith, and physics. At times the story felt weighed down by these questions, but then the book would pick back up in the following steps to complete the mission that will, like all-time travels, change the lives of those involved. A debut that is expertly crafted.
