Dannie Cohen has it all: she’s a successful lawyer about to land her dream job, and she’s just gotten engaged to her boyfriend. One night, she awakes somewhere she doesn’t recognize: in a different apartment, with a man she doesn’t know. She’s five years in the future and she can’t imagine how she got to this place.
And then she is back. But she can’t shake the feeling that it was more than a dream, that she’s on a collision course with that vision of the future. She tries to move forward and does–until she meets the man from her vision.
This was a perfect audiobook for me, with only a few main characters, all of whom have interesting personalities and relationships with one another. It’s a love story, but not in the way you expect, and I couldn’t stop listening.
Perfect for fans of Me Before You and One Day—a striking, powerful, and moving love story following an ambitious lawyer who experiences an astonishing vision that could change her life forever. Where do you see yourself in five years? Dannie Kohan lives her life by the numbers. She is nothing like her lifelong best friend—the wild, whimsical, believes-in-fate Bella. Her meticulous planning seems to have paid off after she nails the most important job interview of her career and accepts her boyfriend’s marriage proposal in one fell swoop, falling asleep completely content. But when she awakens, she’s suddenly in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger, and beside a very different man. Dannie spends one hour exactly five years in the future before she wakes again in her own home on the brink of midnight—but it is one hour she cannot shake. In Five Years is an unforgettable love story, but it is not the one you’re expecting.
