Dear Librarians,

What would you do if your husband suddenly wanted to re-write the rules of your relationship? Julia Dunhill is a thirty-something party planner living a rarified life... until the day her husband collapses at the head of the table in his company's boardroom.

Four minutes and eight seconds later, a portable defibrillator jump-starts his heart. But during those lost minutes, he becomes a different man - one who wants to change everything about their life together. Julia has three weeks to decide whether to stay with her husband, or walk away from the man who truthfully became a stranger to her long before his change of heart.

"Wonderfully compelling... with characters that move you and an ending that surprises and pleases," Library Journal STARRED review.

"Original, soulful and engaging. I fell in love with Julia," Emily Giffin, author of Something Borrowed.

"Sarah Pekkanen proves masterful at creating nuanced, complex characters deadlocked with emotional conflict... the ending will leave readers breathless," Jen Lancaster, author of Bitter is the New Black.
