Summary

The Love of My Other Life tells the story of Josie, a British expat living in New York City. Or rather, it is the tale of two Josies, as her life path split three years previously, when she did or did not meet the love of her life—wealthy, handsome Rob. One Josie is now a single radio show host living in Brooklyn, with a huge crush on her friend Peter; the other is happily married to Rob and living in a fabulous Manhattan penthouse. It’s both Josies’ 36th birthday, and each is set to celebrate when they crash their bicycles at the exact spot where their lives split three years ago. In an instant, each Josie is catapulted into the other’s reality—and the other’s body.

Suddenly, single Josie has everything she ever dreamed of: wealth, a perfect figure, and an adoring husband—who, when Josie doesn’t recognize him, assumes she has amnesia from the crash. But in this new reality, her beloved brother David is dead. Josie is faced with an impossible dilemma—to try to return to her old life, in which David is alive, or to embrace this wonderful new world without her brother. Moreover, as Josie falls deeper in love with Rob, she increasingly realizes that there is another version of herself, living her former life—and that this Other Josie wants her husband back.

The Love of My Other Life is told from each of the split-protagonists’ points of view in a dual narrative. It is a story that will appeal to fans of Laura Barnett’s Versions of Us, Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife and the movie Sliding Doors—a fantastical premise that becomes a story about love, betrayal, self-identity and that big question: “What if?”

Creative story

This was a fun creative story! The author does a great job laying out the character in such a way that you totally understand their process in a crazy situation. Good ending- easy quick read.

The narration was pretty good but the male voices were a bit hard to listen to after awhile.

Sensitive, thoughtful, and moving

I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully written love story. While still possessing what we all love most about romance novels, it has an unique angle that both entertains and inspires. I highly recommend!
