Initially you think this could be a time travel novel or alternative universe tale but then you discover it is a clever device to allow the protagonist to explore her life. Once you accept there are no explanations offered for the jumps in time and just settle back into the story, then you are in for an excellent experience. Intriguing, sophisticated, astute this follows Maggie through her marriage to Dan, a relationship with charismatic Jude, her children, her empty nest fears, her long-term friendship with Becca and her hard-learned lessons. It is a lovely read. Something a little different and very satisfying. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

The Other Us by Fiona Harper

If you could turn back time, would you choose a different life? Forty-something Maggie is facing some hard truths. Her only child has flown the nest for university and, without her daughter in the house, she's realising her life, and her marriage to Dan, is more than a little stale. When she spots an announcement on Facebook about a uni reunion, she can't help wondering what happened to Jude Hanson. The same night Dan proposed, Jude asked Maggie to run away with him, and she starts to wonder how different her life might have been if she'd broken Dan's heart and taken Jude up on his offer. Wondering turns into fantasising, and then one morning fantasising turns into reality. Maggie wakes up and discovers she's back in 1992 and twenty-one again. Is she brave enough to choose the future she really wants, and if she is, will the grass be any greener on the other side of the fence? Two men. Two very different possible futures. But is there only once chance at happiness? Perfect for fans of One Day, The Versions of Us and Miss You

About the Author

Fiona Harper

As a child, Fiona Harper was constantly teased for two things: having her nose in a book and living in a dream world. Things haven’t changed much since then, but at least she’s found a career that puts her runaway imagination to use!

Fiona lives in London with her husband and two teenage daughters (oh, the drama in her house!), and she loves good books, good films and anything cinnamon flavoured. She also can’t help herself if a good tune comes on and she’s near a dance floor – you have been warned!
