We take a sneak peek at Laura Barnett’s much-anticipated debut novel The Versions of Us, an enthralling exploration of the moments when our lives might have turned out differently. The Versions of Us is out now in paperback, eBook and audio.
Some moments can change your life for ever. Have you ever wondered, what if…?
A man is walking down a country lane. A woman, cycling towards him, swerves to avoid a dog. On that moment, their future hinges.
There are three possible outcomes, three small decisions that could determine the rest of their life.
Eva and Jim are nineteen and students at Cambridge when their paths first cross in 1958. The Versions of Us follows the three different courses their lives could take following this first meeting.
