Jude Deveraux's Blockbuster Bestseller

Three best friends, all with the same birthday, are about to turn forty. Celebrating at a summerhouse in Maine, Leslie Headrick, Madison Appleby, and Ellie Abbott are taking stock of their lives and loves, their wishes and choices. But none of them expect the gift that awaits them at the summerhouse: the chance for each of them to turn their "what-might-have-beens" into reality...

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 2/19/2014

    " Great beach read. Read in one day in the sun. 3 women turning forty sent back in time to a place where they wanted to be to change the outcome of their future. Good to daydream after reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 2/17/2014

    " This was a really fun book to read. Also, it made me think a lot about my life and my past. If you could go back and change your life, would you? And if so at what time in your life would you choose for the critical change to take place? Would you want to forget your real life once the change has occurred? Although you know this type of time travel can not exist, you can't help but think, 'what if it could?' "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellany Kincross | 2/14/2014

    " I loved this story! I was rooting for these ladies the whole time. Loved the concept of this story too. Very new age! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy Sprinkle | 2/14/2014

    " I love her writing. It is like a mini vsacation each time I pick up on eof her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 2/2/2014

    " Wonderful book! She tends to write so beautifully that no matter what the plot entails, you are always in for a satisfying read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cinnamon | 1/28/2014

    " I get less and less impressed with Jude Deveraux's writing every time I read any of her more recent titles. It seems like she is unsuccessfully trying to inject fantasy into stories, instead of sticking with what she is really good at: funny romances and historical. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janice Doty | 1/28/2014

    " One of the best 'reflection' books that I have re--and re-read! Some books just just need to get in hard cover because you'll read it over and over again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Francine | 1/26/2014

    " If you could go back in time - would you? While this book is a serious summer/ice tea read, it stayed with me longer than I expected. If you could go back in time - for three weeks - change one thing - one day, one conversations, would you? When/where/what would it be. Would you be willing to risk what you have now to do so? Or maybe because of what you have now you would? Which prompts my own question - if you could change one thing -- the first credit card you ever got, the first diet you ever when on, or your first love....which would it be? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Calisha DeAngelo | 1/20/2014

    " A little far-fetched but a decent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 12/30/2013

    " Thanks for "insisting" I read this, Sharon! Because it was "the" summer read of 2008 I didn't expect it to be what it was! Will "Return to. . ." be as good? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica Shank | 12/21/2013

    " This is my second favorite book by Jude. I love the story of friendship and adventure "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 12/12/2013

    " This is my favorite Jude Deveraux book! I love looking into the lives of these women and seeing what would happen if they had made different choices. I have just about worn out the binding on this one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 12/10/2013

    " Three women reunite after 19 years, share their tragic stories, visit Madame Zoya who sends them back in time to "do over" the tragedies. "

    " One of the few books I have read that really got my hormones pumpin'! It was a little slow in the begining of the book, but once she gets you into it, its hard to put it down! The best parts are near the end of the book. I will read her sequel "Return to the Summerhouse." "

    " I'm glad to have rediscovered an old favorite author, I have always loved Jude Deveraux. Her Night In Shining Armour started my love for historicals and time travel many many years ago. I will have to go over her back list to see which books I have read by her and those that I have missed. "

    " A very simple book read. Not terribly thought provoking, and seemed to jump around a bit, but an easy nice "beach" read. "
