Back When We Were Grown-ups

    By

    One morning, Rebecca wakes up and realises she has turned into the wrong person.

What happened to her quiet and serious nineteen-year-old self, and what would have happened if she'd married her college sweetheart? Can someone ever recover the person they've left behind?
