The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett

What if you had said yes… ?

Eva and Jim are nineteen, and students at Cambridge, when their paths first cross in 1958.  Jim is walking along a lane when a woman approaching him on a bicycle swerves to avoid a dog.

What happens next will determine the rest of their lives.

We follow three different versions of their future – together, and apart – as their love story takes on different incarnations and twists and turns to the conclusion in the present day.

The Versions of Us is an outstanding debut novel about the choices we make and the different paths that our lives might follow.

What if one small decision could change the rest of your life?

Peer & Press Reviews

A triumphant debut… a thoughtful, measured book about the interplay of chance and destiny in our lives.

Elena Seymenliyska, Sunday Telegraph

She is a stylish writer; so much so, it’s hard to believe that this is her first novel.  Spanning the entire second half of the 20th century and much of the 21st, this book is evocative and atmospheric.

Anne Cunningham, Irish independent

Its very scope is a joy, the technical achievement seamlessly done, and the ending – all the endings – suitably affecting.

Jenny Colgan, The Guardian
