Description

From the acclaimed author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and After I Do comes a breathtaking new novel about a young woman whose fate hinges on the choice she makes after bumping into an old flame; in alternating chapters, we see two possible scenarios unfold-with stunningly different results. At the age of twenty-nine, Hannah Martin still has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She has lived in six different cities and held countless meaningless jobs since graduating college. On the heels of leaving yet another city, Hannah moves back to her hometown of Los Angeles and takes up residence in her best friend Gabby's guestroom. Shortly after getting back to town, Hannah goes out to a bar one night with Gabby and meets up with her high school boyfriend, Ethan. Just after midnight, Gabby asks Hannah if she's ready to go. A moment later, Ethan offers to give her a ride later if she wants to stay. Hannah hesitates. What happens if she leaves with Gabby? What happens if she leaves with Ethan? In concurrent storylines, Hannah lives out the effects of each decision. Quickly, these parallel universes develop into radically different stories with large-scale consequences for Hannah, as well as the people around her. As the two alternate realities run their course, Maybe in Another Life raises questions about fate and true love: Is anything meant to be? How much in our life is determined by chance? And perhaps, most compellingly: Is there such a thing as a soul mate? Hannah believes there is. And, in both worlds, she believes she's found him.

Professional reviews

"Fans of the movie SLIDING DOORS will love this fresh take on parallel lives and how one small decision can change a person's path forever. Narrator Julia Whelan brings passion to the two different lives of Hannah Martin, with the alternating storylines demarcated by thoughtful pauses. Her life's journey diverges on a night when leaving a club early provides the timing that causes her to get hit by a car. A number of aspects of each life are remarkably similar though; chief among them is Hannah's friendship with Gaby, her rock in each life, both of which are marked by difficult events. Whelan gives another spectacular performance that will have readers laughing, crying, and philosophizing about the "what if's" in life. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
