Can you fall in love for the first time twice? A recently widowed women is about to find out when she wakes up and finds herself 18 again in this "highly entertaining" story of second chances (Guardian) by the star of Peep Show.
Kate's husband Luke - the man she loved from the moment she met him 28 years ago - died suddenly. Since then she has pushed away her friend and lost her job, and everything is starting to fall apart.
One day, she wakes up in the wrong room and in the wrong body. She is 18 again but remembers everything. This is her college room in 1992 on the first day of orientation. And this is the day she meets Luke.
Kate knows how he died, and that he's already ill. But Luke is not the man that she lost: he's still a boy - the annoying 19-year-old English student she first met. If they can fall in love again despite everything, she might just be able to save him. She's going to try to do everything exactly the same....
