The same night that Dannie gets engaged, she has a dream that it’s five years in the future and she’s living with a different man. She tries to forget about it, until a few years later when she meets that same man from her dream. While this is partly a romance, it is also about Dannie’s life and career in New York City, and her relationship with her childhood best friend. Once you start, this is hard to put down.
“When smart, thoughtful writing pairs with a compelling, ingenious plot I am hooked and so very happy. It’s been a long time since I read a novel in two sittings, but as soon as I started In Five Years, I was a goner. Loved it! Brava, Rebecca Serle.” —ELINOR LIPMAN, author of Good Riddance
“A heartwarming portrait of a broken heart finding a little healing magic.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Heartbreaking, redemptive, and authentic in all the ways that make a book impossible to put down, I fell in love with this story. In five years, I will still be thinking about this beautiful novel.” —JAMIE FORD, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
