Dan Barron delivers a gripping and suspenseful love story with Adelia! Gripped by guilt from his wife’s suicide, Jack Landen turns to alcohol. But when a drunken wish sends him back in time five years, Jack jumps at the chance to save Adelia’s life and their marriage. The time travel aspect was really neat, but I really appreciated the realism Barron put into this one! Jack and Adelia were both wonderfully deep characters, and seeing them grow through the novel’s trials was extremely satisfying. If you’re looking for a love story with a lot of depth and even suspense, definitely turn back the clock with Adelia!
