Book Synopsis: Rebecca is a thirty-three-year-old woman looking for yesterday. Alone after the death of her father and break up with her live-in boyfriend John, Rebecca clings to memories of her childhood in Brooklyn. Before losing her mother when she was nine, her world seemed safe and secure. Rebecca decides to return to Brooklyn after twenty-four years. She falls asleep on the subway and wakes to find herself in 1980, where she comes into contact with not only her parents and family but her childhood self. In an attempt to alter the past and save her mother from an untimely death, Rebecca learns that the only person she can save is herself.
