Jim Mulligan's personal and professional life is in shambles. Only his beautiful and loving wife, Ellie, makes life worth living. In an instant, she was gone. Despairing, he drives into the night and over the edge, literally. Awakening from a car accident that should have killed him, he finds himself uninjured in his seventeen-year-old body, in the 1980's. Taking bold chances he would never have taken the first time, his life improves, but his ultimate goal, to rewrite his life happily ever after, is thwarted by diversions, temporal paradoxes and his own character flaws. A story of the rewards and pitfalls of taking the other road, the weakness of moral relativism and the profound consequences of indulging personal desires with a gift meant to be used for the greater good. Of the practical challenges of involuntary time-travel, the inter-connectedness of every event in life, and how certain events shape a person, and how memory conflicts with fact.
