Publisher's Summary

In one moment, two lives will be changed forever...and forever...and forever.
The one thing that's certain is that they met on a Cambridge street by chance and felt a connection that would last a lifetime. But as for what happened next...
They fell wildly in love or went their separate ways. They kissed or they thought better of it. They married soon after or were together for a few weeks before splitting up. They grew distracted and disappointed with their daily lives together or found solace together only after hard years spent apart.
With The Versions of Us, Laura Barnett has created a world as magical and affecting as those that captivated listeners in One Day and Life After Life. It is a tale of possibilities and consequences that rings across the shifting decades, from the '50s, the '60s, and the '70s and on to the present, showing how even the smallest choices can define the courses of our lives.

Thought-provoking and romantic.

This is the kind of novel I, myself, would like to write -- if only I had a modicum of Ms. Barnett's talent. The individual "versions" are masterfully crafted, with each one coming alive in its own right. Together, they are a beautiful study of what-ifs and could-have-beens. I did not experience the level of confusion over the versions that some other reviewers have mentioned (and which almost kept me from purchasing the book). The narrators are excellent, to boot!

Worth sticking with

I really enjoyed listening to this novel. I was intrigued by the format, three different outcomes, and was not disappointed. At first it was difficult to follow. You really do get three different scenarios with the same characters but making different decisions leading to different lives of the two main characters. As the stories progressed, though, it was easier to follow, perhaps because you become more acquainted with the three story lines. I think for anyone who ever wondered "if I had not followed this path what would my life be like now?" this book is a fulfillment of that fantasy. I also liked the way the author tied it all together towards the end for both of the main characters with the insight that every decision we make during our lives has an impact on our future.
