A 1986 Novel by Ken Grimwood.
Jeff Winston is 43 and stuck in a loveless marriage and dead end job. At 1:06pm on October 18, 1988, he has a sudden, fatal heart attack and the next moment finds himself 18 in his college dorm room in May of 1963. He makes a killer bet on who he already knows will win the Kentucky Derby and uses his winnings and knowledge of the future to create a Fortune 500 company. By 1988 he is wealthy and powerful... and on October 18, 1988 he suffers another fatal heart attack, waking up in 1963 again.
Yep, he's stuck in a 25 year "Groundhog Day" Loop
. Each time he loops back though, he's a little further along his original timeline. He meets Pamela, a woman who is also stuck in the loop. Together they find some stability in their lives and seek out others who may be looping themselves. What's going to happen when Jeff's loop back point and the day in 1988 eventually meet?
