Romance is at the heart of this book by beloved author Josie Silver—but it’s anything but your standard love story. Emotionally wrought, warm, witty, and thought-provoking, The Two Lives of Lydia Bird explores the far-reaching effects of choices made at life’s crossroads.
When the love of her life, Freddie, dies in a tragic accident, Lydia is almost swallowed up by grief. But even as she takes the first tentative steps toward healing, something miraculous happens: Lydia finds her way into the past, into a world where the tragedy never took place and she can be with Freddie again.
But living dual lives takes an emotional toll, and Lydia begins to realize that her heart is going to have to make a choice.
“Through lush prose, expert plotting, and richly imagined characters, Silver offers an achingly real portrait of grief transposed with the character’s intoxicating parallel universe. This will stay with readers long after the final page is turned.” — Publishers Weekly
