Maybe that was always besides the point.
Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.
When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.
That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .
Is that what she’s supposed to do? Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?
The story was beautifully written I feel like Rowell really is a good writer, she is able to construct a beautiful design of story telling in such a unique way that wasn’t hard to follow but was enjoyable and different.
We follow the story of a marriage between Georgie and Neal, and it’s on the brink of devastation. We see and feel for Georgie as she struggles to find what she needs in order to continue on with this marriage. Fixed? no, is the marriage perfect with a “happily-ever-after?” no, which makes this brilliant and wonderful. It wasn’t a life altering decision that made their marriage all “A-okay” but a choice made that made both parties want to press on. And in today’s societies, divorce is such an easy option. But this story is about 2 people who are so imperfect; and YOU SEE THAT; and yet are successful because they don’t give up. Regardless of the all the mistakes and wrongs and imperfections of the other person, they didn’t give up. They saw realizations of things that needed to change and were willing to change in order to make it work.
Overall: Its a wonderful, emotional story that I completely see being made into a wonderful movie.
Sexual Content: moderate (phone sex is brought up, and the reader is made to understand that 2 characters had it-not graphic)
