Laura Barnett’s The Versions of Us

Happy Friday Book Lovers! This week’s #FridayRead is Laura Barnett’s much-anticipated debut novel The Versions of Us, which is out now in hardback, eBook and audio.

Eva and Jim are nineteen and students at Cambridge when their paths first cross in 1958. On that moment, their future hinges. There are three possible outcomes, three small decisions that could determine the rest of their life.

The Versions of Us explores the choices we make and the different paths that our lives might follow.
