The Versions of Us
by Laura Barnett




Overview -
#1 UK Bestseller

"A joy." -- Guardian

"Enchanting." -- People

"Triumphant." -- Sunday Telegraph

"Stunningly crafted and constantly surprising . . . An utterly convincing love story about two people destined to be together somehow, no matter what." -- Times

"One Day meets Sliding Doors." -- Elle

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. TheVersions of Us is a tour de force of storytelling.

"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

"One of the most engrossing novels either of us has read in years." --Richard Madeley, Richard and Judy Book Club

"I simply adored this wonderful novel." -- Jessie Burton, author of The Muse and The Miniaturist
