What if we could go back to one specific time in our lives and change the
course of the future? In this sequel to the Christy Award-winning The Lottery,
Moser offers an intriguing look at the consequences of our choices. Three time
lottery ticket winners all have regrets about their past. Movie star Lane
Holloway is haunted by the life she might have had in a small town with her
high school sweetheart. Vanessa Caldwell wonders about her abortion and her
decision to live with her wealthy father rather than her hippie mother. The
never-married CEO David Stancowsky longs to save his fiancee from an apparent
accidental death that cost them their future. They can go back in time, but if
they choose to stay and live a different life-their "Alternity"-they will die
in real time. Intriguingly, given the plot, Vanessa's mother tells her "Life
is not random... each of us has been created with a unique purpose. The trick
is to find out what it is." Sharp, unobtrusive details, strong dialogue and
interesting characters make the pages turn. Occasionally, Moser slips into
preachiness, but the worst faux pas is a self-promoting reference to her
earlier book The Seat Beside Me, as a potential vehicle for Holloway. Despite
ending on a sour note, this is a compelling read that faith fiction fans will
enjoy. (Nov.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Just picked this up yesterday and have already read almost half of it! I can't put it down to go to sleep at night! Just as good as the first book. I hope she writes some more.

Be sure to read Time Lottery (the first book). The 2nd one is just as good and both are excellent. Be prepared for surprise endings in both. I've just recently been introduced to Nancy Moser and have been thrilled to find another Christian author of her caliber. Ms. Moser is (in my opinion) up there with Karen Kingsbury, Terri Blackstock and Beverly Lewis (and so many others). My ONLY complaint would be that they just don't write fast enough to keep me in reading material.

I'm now reading the sequel to Nancy's Time Lottery. I went immediately from #1 to this second book in the series. It's awesome so far as well. My husband said that I'll like this one even better than the first...which I can't imagine because I was blown away by the first. What a series!

Another winner! Liked the first one, this second one is even better! Nancy Moser came up with a great story line and it holds your attention from beginning to end. Loved it. Keep them coming, I'd like to read more of the same.
