'This is a pure joy' Heat

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 that 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

Review quote

Praise for The Other Us:

'An engaging and thought-provoking read' Daily Mail

'What an absolutely brilliant book. It captures all the emotions of the 'what if' times in your life when you're low and wonder if you've made the right choices and dream how life could have been. It carries you on a journey in which you live Maggie's 'what if' and somehow see your own. The pages turned and each stage I was rooting for Maggie to see her way forward and was left filled with a love for this life, this now.' Liz Fenwick

'A bittersweet roller coaster ride into the past; unexpected, perceptive and a little bit heart-breaking. Essential reading for those of us who came of age in the 90s, and for anyone who's ever asked the question 'what if...?' Iona Grey

'Touching, uplifting and emotional-I was pulled into this moving story of a woman questioning love, and finding herself.' Julie Cohen
