Description

After twenty-year-old Bill Winder tragically loses his young wife Kathy in childbirth, he finds himself mysteriously reunited with her and his baby some twenty years in the past. He slowly realizes that somehow he is living the life of his own father, implying that the son he and Kathy are raising will grow up to be him--but only if they can relive and reinvent their lives without a single mistake. The story begins in 2012 at a college in Cambridge Massachusetts, where Kathy, a self-reliant idealist, and Bill, a charming but troubled Romantic Poetry major, fall in love and marry, only to see their lives tumble tragically out of control when Kathy dies giving birth to their baby boy. As Bill grieves, his life seems to curl in on itself, offering a second chance to be with the woman he loves and raise their child together. Even as the young couple searches for a way to explain what has happened to them, they must somehow recreate Bill's childhood perfectly, guided only by his own sketchy memory and the knowledge that one wrong step could destroy everything they cherish. Rewind's spiraling, curvy plot sweeps you up from the first page and maintains a can't-put-it-down pace right to the end. Captivating characters and a poignant family love story deliver rich insights about resilience, sacrifice, and the universal passages that are part of every life.show more
