Description

"Stunningly crafted and constantly surprising . . . An utterly convincing love story about two people destined to be together somehow, no matter what."—The Times A dazzling novel about the ways the smallest decisions give shape to our lives, The Versions of Us charts a relationship through three possible futures. Cambridge, 1958. Late for class, Eva Edelstein swerves to miss a dog and crashes her bike. Jim Taylor hurries to help her. In that brief moment, three outcomes are born for Eva and Jim. As the strands of their lives weave together and apart across the decades from college through wildly different successes and disappointments, seductions and betrayals, births and funerals, joys and sorrows, the only constant is the power of their connection. A #1 UK bestseller, The Versions of Us is a tour de force of storytelling. "One Day meets Sliding Doors."—Elle "I simply adored this wonderful novel."—Jessie Burton, New York Times bestselling author of The Miniaturist "A joy."—The Guardian "Enchanting."—People "Imagines the delicious prospect of romantic do-overs, cleverly negotiating the tricky and often dizzying terrain of three versions of first love . . . A masterly romantic study of love's choices and consequences."—Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Triumphant."—The Sunday Telegraph "Barnett renders an irresistible concept in sweet, cool prose—a bit like a choose-your-own-adventure book in which you don't have to choose."—Observer "Reading this ambitious first novel is like putting together the pieces of a complex puzzle. The challenge pays off—only when the puzzle is complete can readers see the whole panoramic picture."—Library Journal
