Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
From page one, Goodger's debut novel draws readers in, promises a terrific story and delivers in abundance. Sometime in the 1990s, the happily married, happily pregnant Susan Butler is killed in an auto accident, but something happens on the way to heaven and Susan's soul is rerouted into the plump, alcohol-abused body of Margaret Johnsbury of Newport, R.I., circa 1888. As Margaret, Susan quickly learns, she is a vile, manipulative creature despised by everyone, including her husband, Carter. Ever optimistic, Susan puts herself on a diet, then sets out to mend her marriage and reestablish herself in society. Repairing Margaret's damage is not easy: she is shunned at social functions, Carter's family avoids her and Carter believes she is playing him for a fool again. Despite a sometimes distracting ping-pong point of view, this is a riveting, delightful read, certain to launch the career of a very talented romance author. (June)

    I had to buy this book twice!

    When I first read the book I didn't know how much it would effect me. The characters were so well written and the plot so exciting that at one point I was in tears and another I was laughing with joy. You really get to know the main characters and start to hope they do find what they both are looking for. My original copy, which I happened upon in a thrift store, was lost and I forgot the name and author of the book. With only the memory of the plot I found the book again through other avid readers and immediately purchased it again. I love this book and read it over and over again. Kudos!

    this is one of the best books ever

    i read this book back in 1997. a co-worker of mine had let me use it and i could not put it down. i read it at least three times before i gave it back. i like others had actually forgot the name of the book but i could remember most of the story. i am so glad that i found the book again. sorry to say but i am not letting anyone borrow my copy.i also read 'Anything for love' and the same goes for that book, it will not leave my sight.
