What if you had the chance to save someone you lost?
Isolated in the aftermath of tragedy, Erin Fullarton has felt barely alive since the loss of her young daughter, Korrie. She tries to mark the milestones her therapist suggests – like this day: the five hundredth – but moving through grief is like swimming against a dark current.
Her estranged husband, Zac, a brilliant astrophysicist, seems to be coping better. Lost in his work, he’s perfecting his model of a stunning cosmological phenomenon, one he predicts will occur on this same day – an event so rare, it keeps him from being able to acknowledge this milestone alongside Erin.
But when Erin receives a phone call from her daughter’s school, the same call she received five hundred days earlier when Korrie was still alive, Erin realises something is happening. Or happening again. Struggling to understand the sudden shifts in time, she pieces together that the phenomenon Zac is tracking may have presented her with the gift of a lifetime: the chance to save her daughter.
As Erin is swept through time, she’s unable to reach Zac or convince the authorities of what is happening. Forced to find the answer on her own, Erin must battle to keep the past from repeating – or risk losing her daughter for good.

If you could change the past would you?
This is the conundrum Erin is faced with when a phenomenon happens that means she could save her daughter whom she lost tragically.
I was intrigued by the blurb of this book and was drawn in by the storyline. This was a very cleverly written book weaving a plausible science fiction into a possible reality. This was a fast paced book and I sympathised with Erin and her feelings throughout the book, wondering what decisions she would make and the consequences of them.
I wonder if I had the chance to repeat a moment from my past, would I change anything or let things run their course?
I will definitely be watching for more of Catherine’s work in the future
