About The One That I Want

  • Hardcover: 288 pages
  • Publisher: Shaye Areheart Books (June 1, 2010)

This novel is for anyone who has ever wondered what their future might hold. Most of us question where we will be in five or ten years, who we will marry (if we get married), where we’ll live, if the goals we’ve set for ourselves will actually come to pass. THE ONE THAT I WANT, (Shaye Areheart Books; June 1, 2010), Allison Winn Scotch’s smart, entertaining, and inspiring follow-up to the highly praised Time of My Life, explores what might happen if you could see into your future.

Tilly Farmer is 32 years old and has the life she always dreamed of: married to her high school boyfriend, working as the school guidance counselor, trying for a baby. Perfect. But a chance meeting with a childhood friend in a fortune teller’s tent at the local fair changes everything.

“I’m giving you the gift of clarity,” her friend says, “It’s what I always thought you needed.” That night Tilly has a terrifying dream that her alcoholic father has relapsed, and when she wakes up to learn that he crashed his car into a tree after a night at the bar she can’t help but think she saw it coming. Soon enough Tilly starts seeing more visions: her husband Tyler uprooting their quiet life, a packed U-Haul in their driveway, leaving for a job in Seattle. And even more disturbing, these visions start coming true.

What would you do if you could take a glimpse into your future and how would you react if it wasn’t quite what you expected? What if the life you were living isn’t the one you were meant to? In THE ONE THAT I WANT Allison Winn Scotch allows us to consider that fundamental question…what if?
