If I Could Live Again, C. Ingrid Deringer

Sometimes dreams do come true—but not in the way we expect.

Spanning three generations and nearly one hundred years, this is a heart-wrenching story about love, loss, family—both blood and the people you choose, spiritual connection, and a dream coming true in an unexpected way.
In 1925, Margaret, born with a gift for music, is growing up in an abusive and unloving home, caring for her younger siblings and working hard on their dairy farm in Nova Scotia. She aspires to be a successful singer/songwriter but as life moves along and she settles in Alberta, it becomes less and less likely that she will ever achieve her dream.

In 2015, as Sarah is going through her parents’ belongings after their unexpected deaths, she stumbles across a box of transcripts of stories she told them when she was a child. The tales take on a more personal meaning when she falls in love with Alex, and as she spends time with his family, begins to feel a spiritual bond to Margaret.

How are these two women connected?
