"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Other Life


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Other Life
By Ellen Meister
Publication Date: February 17

From Amazon:

What if you could return to the road not taken?

Happily married with a young son and another child on the way, Quinn Braverman has the perfect life. She also has an ominous secret. Every time she makes a major life decision, she knows an alternative reality exists in which she made the opposite choice--not only that, she knows how to cross over. But even in her darkest moments, like her mother's suicide, Quinn hasn't been tempted to visit...until she receives shattering news about the baby she's carrying.

Desperate to escape her grief, Quinn slips through the portal that leads to her other life: the life in which she stayed with her exciting but neurotic ex-boyfriend, and is childless. The life in which, as she is amazed to discover, her mother is still very much alive.

I read one similar to this in YA (I think it was called A CRACK IN THE LINE), and it was fascinating. Hope this one's equally good!

Kat said...

Oh no... the auto fill-in forms have done a number on me yet again. :/ Everyone please disregard '(the Sisters Red)' in my link-- that was an earlier link I posted to this site, I can only assume.

I've never heard of your pick this week, but it sounds intriguing. I hope you enjoy it when it's released! :)
