David has the opportunity to get out of the rut he is in at the end of his middle years. He has an ugly wife raped by her father, a frustrated sister, and a mother who has a nonexistent husband fucking his secretary, and a tutor who feels that she is guilty of letting her father disappear from her life when she was three.
And David has the means given to only a few to go back in time and change things for the better for them. And in changing their lives, he changes his own.
My only problem is that two of his wonderful conquests disappear from story without a by your leave.
But even so the tale is well thought out and is worth the reading.
