First book when three women share the same birthday. Each goes back in time to decide if they would make the same choices. ( )

A wonderful "what if" book -- what if you could change your past, nudge it a little? Easy to read with engaging characters and story lines. I really enjoyed this book. ( )

This was an excellent paperback.. I'd read it again. Such up and downs in life,but very hilarious,then some sadness. Things that happen in the real world. ( )

This story kept me absorbed the entire time. 3 women are given the chance of a lifetime. Each has 3 weeks back in time to see how their life would be different now if they made other choices in the past. If they like their new life better than their old life, well then, they can keep it! Sometimes one choice can shape an entire lifetime. It is a very thought provoking story where do-overs are allowed and alternate realities are possible. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0671014196, Mass Market Paperback)

What if a woman could go back to the beginning and rethink her choices for love and life? When Leslie Headrick, Madison Appleby, and Ellie Abbott first met, they were in their early 20s and the world lay before them with its infinite possibilities. Now that they're about to turn 40, they reunite for a weekend at a summerhouse in Maine where they share the details of their lives during the past 20 years. Each woman has serious doubts and questions about the path she chose to follow, but none of them suspect the startling opportunity they're about to be offered to relive those choices and change their futures.

Thought-provoking, entertaining, and downright delightful, Jude Deveraux's The Summerhouse deftly develops the individual stories of the three women in fascinating detail while maintaining the overall focus on the central tale. The ties of sisterhood and shared experience that bind the three resonate with depth and clarity--no wonder then that Deveraux is a perennial favorite with readers. There is little doubt that this volume will join her lengthy list of bestsellers. --Lois Faye Dyer

Have you ever wanted to rewrite your past? Three best friends, all with the same birthday, are about to turn forty. Celebrating at a summerhouse in Maine, Leslie Headrick, Madison Appleby, and Ellie Abbott are taking stock of their lives and loves, their wishes and choices. But none of them expect the gift that awaits them at the summerhouse: the chance for each of them to turn their "what-might-have-beens" into reality ... Leslie, a suburban wife and mother, follows the career of a boy who pursued her in college wonders: what if she had chosen differently? Madison dropped a modeling career to help her high school boyfriend recover from an accident, even though he'd jilted her. But what if she had said "no" when her old boyfriend had called? Ellie became a famous novelist, but a bitter divorce wiped out her earnings -- and shattered her belief in herself. Why had the "justice" system failed her? And could she prevent its happening the second time around? Now, a mysterious "Madame Zoya," offers each of them a chance to relive any three weeks from the past. Will the road not taken prove a better path? Each woman will have to decide for herself as she follows the dream that got away ... and each must choose the life that will truly satisfy the heart's deepest longings.… (more)
