The Universe Has No Regrets
Book Club Fiction
The universe doesn’t make mistakes.
Call it fate, synchronicity, or a God wink, but whatever you do—don’t call it a coincidence . . . or so Rebekah is learning.
Rebekah is a teen-mom living outside New York City raising her three-year-old son. When she met Jake three months ago in a long line at a local coffee shop, she wasn’t looking for love—but now an unwanted pregnancy with Jake threatens to disrupt her new found freedom. Jake tries to convince her that they are connected by something called ‘the red string of fate,’ a Chinese folktale that explains how everyone who is meant to meet in this life is connected by an invisible string, but Rebekah doesn’t believe in fate and questions all ties when her ex, Derrick, comes back into the picture. She turns down Jake’s romantic marriage proposal and her fear of commitment pushes him away. But then synchronicities start to happen to Rebekah that she can’t explain when strangers in the shape of a drug addict, a cheating baker, and a homeless youth all cross Rebekah’s path and influence her future. She starts believing in the red string of fate and experiencing her own signs from the universe that she and Jake are meant to be together, but she may have awoken to fate too late. Rebekah will have to do everything she can in order to get Jake back—including the one thing she swore she’d never do again.
