9780007226511: Starting Over

Policeman George Bailey has been given the gift we all dream of – the chance to live his life again. After suffering a heart attack at the age of 47, George is given the heart of a 19-year-old – and suddenly everything changes.... Newly invigorated, George is suddenly a true friend to his teenage son and daughter - and no longer the stern, old school dad he was before, monitoring their every move. And suddenly he is an insatiable red-hot lover to his bewildered wife, and not just a complacent husband. And now George wants to change the world and not just watch it pass him by – and change it he most certainly will, as soon as he shakes off this hangover. George Bailey is about to discover that being young again is not all that it is cracked up to be – and what he actually wants more than anything in the universe is to have his old life back.
