    I read a book about 25 years ago and now can not find it.

    I thought the title was, "Time and Time Again" but I'm starting to think
    I may have the wrong title.

    I found a short story by the same title by Henry Beam Piper written in 1947
    and the short story is along the same lines as the novel I read, very close.

    The gist of the novel goes like this:
    A man in his forties dies and wakes up in his teenage body back in his old house
    as if he had dreamed his entire adult life. He has memories of his life that hold true.
    He lives another life and dies at the exact same time as in his previous life and then
    wakes up again a teenager, but a little bit older than the first time. Each time he
    lives his life differently but always dies at the same moment and each time he goes
    back, he is a little bit older. After numerous reincarnations he meets a woman that is
    experiencing the same thing.

    I don't remember how the story ends. I would really like the title and author if anyone
    remembers the book.

    I'm actually sort of bummed to realize that 1987 was over 25 years ago...
