Title: The Other Us
Author: Fiona Harper
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 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?
Review: I have really enjoyed some of Fiona’s other stories in the past so had to give this one ago.
I was interested to see how the story plays out. It is a dilemma we can all relate to. Is the grass greener on the other side? What if I didn’t do this but did this instead would I be happy etc. I will not give away any spoilers as I like people to read a book and have all the wow moments and the lol moments etc for themselves.
This is well written and I really enjoyed it. You feel connected to the characters and want to follow their journey. It did start of a bit slow but once you get into it I enjoyed it. So one defiantly to keep at. I really enjoyed the best friend relationship between Maggie and Becca.
I would recommend this book to anyone who like a good romance, chick-flick and women’s fiction.
