Well-written page turner and reflection of life. – L Marie, Amazon Customer

Valerie Fairfield is 13 when she decides to become someone else. By the time she realizes it is a mistake, she is 58. And dead.

When Valerie dies suddenly one Saturday afternoon, she finds herself trapped in her past until she can confront the tragedies she set in motion with her decision so long ago.

Her sensitive son is drifting through life convinced he has no value. Her beautiful daughter is miserable even as she prepares to marry a wealthy and handsome man in the society wedding of the year. Business problems, a tragic accident, personal losses and political scandal drive the family into deeper dysfunction as Valerie fights to protect the family image.

Her children struggle to prevent their own identities from being sacrificed as they are being made into the children Valerie really wanted.

There is gritty reality lurking beneath the polished image of the family Valerie has created, but she refuses to acknowledge the pattern of destruction that has followed her since middle school.

Insight, imagination, and humor combine to create this deeply engaging novel about social class envy, peer pressure, individual differences and the outside influences that tear at family ties in our contemporary society.

Slowly Valerie realizes the tragedies her family endured were because of the misguided decision she made so many years before, and she begins to feel regrets.

It isn’t until she looks down on her funeral, which is filled with devastating family revelations, that she finally understands that her perfect life is just a legacy of mistakes. But is it too late for forgiveness?
