Release Day Review: She Wouldn't Change a Thing by Sarah Adlakha

Sliding Doors meets Life After Life in Sarah Adlakha's story about a wife and mother who is given the chance to start over at the risk of losing everything she loves.

A second chance is the last thing she wants.

When thirty-nine year old Maria Forssmann wakes up in her seventeen-year-old body, she doesn’t know how she got there. All she does know is she has to get back: to her home in Bienville, Mississippi, to her job as a successful psychiatrist and, most importantly, to her husband, daughters, and unborn son.

But she also knows that, in only a few weeks, a devastating tragedy will strike her husband, a tragedy that will lead to their meeting each other.

Can she change time and still keep what it’s given her?

Exploring the responsibilities love lays on us, the complicated burdens of motherhood, and the rippling impact of our choices, She Wouldn't Change a Thing is a dazzling debut from a bright new voice.

She Wouldn't Change a Thing was a very unique novel and kept me intrigued until the last page. When I started this book I didn't know what to expect, which is good because I like to be surprised. The story is told from two POVs, which confused me at first but the connection between the characters was revealed step by step. In the beginning I had a hard time connecting to the main character Maria Forssmann, but the further I got into the story the more I could relate to her. She had to make some very difficult decisions that I hope no one has to make. But I admired her resilience and determination.

I love it when the author keeps me guessing and on my toes. The writing was done really well. It had a great flow and was easy to read. I loved how everything came together in the end, and I personally found the ending to be beautiful even if it was a bit heartbreaking in a way. I do wish there was more interaction between certain characters but overall I was still very satisfied with how everything developed. I enjoyed Sarah Adlakha's debut novel She Wouldn't Change a Thing and definitely look forward to her next book.
