Come Again by Robert Webb

You can’t fall in love for the first time twice…

Kate’s husband Luke – the man she loved from the moment she met him twenty-eight years ago – died suddenly.  Since then she has pushed away her friends, lost her job and everything is starting to fall apart.

One day, she wakes up in the wrong room and in the wrong body.  She is eighteen again but remembers everything.  This is her college room in 1992.  This is the first day of Freshers’ Week.  And this is the day she first meets Luke.

But Luke is not the man that she lost: he’s still a boy – the annoying nineteen-year-old English student she first met.  Kate knows how he died and that he’s already ill.  If they can fall in love again she might just be able to save him.  She’s going to try to do everything exactly the same…

Peer & Press Reviews

Robert Webb’s effortlessly enjoyable debut novel is soaked in and a wry comment on nostalgia… his execution is smart, unexpected and full of pop cultural nous.  It’s also a ripping adventure yarn…  Tender, thoughtful and terrific fun.


[Webb] has a clean, affable style that fits itself around the comedy and tension that the story needs at different points…  God knows we need a bit of a laugh and a thrill these days, books like this that are driven firmly by characters, setting and story.


A parable on the allure of nostalgia that also serves as a state-of-Britain satire and knockabout action romp, it moves at warp speed.
