What if you woke up one day to discover that you were engaged to your high school sweetheart-whom you hadn't seen in years?
What if the person who died saving your life walked into your room-as if nothing had happened?
What if you didn't know what was real...and what you were only imagining?
Rachel Wiltshire has everything she's ever wanted: a close group of friends, a handsome boyfriend, and acceptance tot he journalism program at her top choice college. But one fateful evening, tragedy tears her world apart.
Five years later, Rachel is still coping with her grief, and can't stop thinking about the bright future she almost had. But when a sudden fall lands her in the hospital, Rachel wakes to find that her life has completely changed. Now she has her dream job as a writer, and a stylish apartment, but the people she loves most are not the way she remembers them. Unable to trust her own recollections, Rachel tries to piece together what really happened, and not even she can predict the astonishing truth.
He had always been able to make me laugh.
"It's just that what I know to be completely and unequivocally true keeps being proved to be false. It's very unsettling."
He took a long sip of his coffee before replying. "I'm sure it must be. And frustrating too."
There was something in his voice, something I'd not heard from anyone else, and it made me drop the forkful of cake that was halfway to my mouth.
"Do you believe me?" I realized that in all my protestations, I had never asked that precise question of anyone.
His sky blue eyes held mine in a gaze that a person could drown in if they weren't careful.
"I believe that you believe it, wholeheartedly and completely. And I can see what trying to convince the rest of us is doing to you." He was quite for a moment and I almost spoke then-thank God I didn't, or I would never have heard him finish in a whisper, "And it's heartbreaking to see you like this."
I hadn't realized his words had made me cry until he lifted my face gently with his finger and dabbed at my eyes with the folded napkin. His voice was still soft and low. "And I've certainly never seen you cry this much, not even when you kept falling off your bike when you were eight years old."
I gave a rather unladylike sniff, but his words had done the trick, he'd made me smile.
"Oh, I've certainly cried plenty in the last five years, more than you'll ever know."
"What about?" Here it was. The moment to either back right off or plunge in regardless.
"About losing you. When you saved my life, and lost yours. You've no idea what that did to me. You've no idea how much I've missed you."
