Publisher's Summary

Some moments can change your life forever. Have you ever wondered, what if...?
A man is walking down a country lane. A woman, cycling towards him, swerves to avoid a dog. On that moment, their future hinges. There are three possible outcomes, three small decisions that could determine the rest of their life.
Eva and Jim are 19 and students at Cambridge when their paths first cross in 1958. And then there is David, Eva's then lover, an ambitious actor who loves Eva deeply. The Versions of Us follows the three different courses their lives could take following this first meeting. Lives filled with love, betrayal, ambition but through it all is a deep connection that endures whatever fate might throw at them.
The Versions of Us explores the idea that there are moments when our lives might have turned out differently, the tiny factors or decisions that could determine our fate, and the precarious nature of the foundations upon which we build our lives. It is also a story about the nature of love and how it grows, changes and evolves as we go through the vagaries of life.

Forces individual reflection

Was hard to follow in parts (you need to give yourself hints to help e.g. The 3 looks like a pregnant woman so version 3 had the baby in it!). However once used to that, the story was moving, insightful and gripping. The closing chapters had my gut clenching many times. It makes one reflect on ones own life and how one would want their story told. An excellent novel that makes one want to discuss it with others.
