Publisher Description

Two lives. Two loves. One impossible choice. From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reese’s Book Club Pick One Day in December. . .
“I read The Two Lives of Lydia Bird in a single sitting. What a beautiful, emotional gift Josie Silver has given us.”—Jodi Picoult

Written with Josie Silver’s trademark warmth and wit, The Two Lives of Lydia Bird is a powerful and thrilling love story about the what-ifs that arise at life’s crossroads, and what happens when one woman is given a miraculous chance to answer them.
Lydia and Freddie. Freddie and Lydia. They’d been together for more than a decade and Lydia thought their love was indestructible. But she was wrong. On Lydia’s twenty-eighth birthday, Freddie died in a car accident.
So now it’s just Lydia, and all she wants is to hide indoors and sob until her eyes fall out. But Lydia knows that Freddie would want her to try to live fully, happily, even without him. So, enlisting the help of his best friend, Jonah, and her sister, Elle, she takes her first tentative steps into the world, open to life—and perhaps even love—again.
But then something inexplicable happens that gives her another chance at her old life with Freddie. A life where none of the tragic events of the past few months have happened.
Lydia is pulled again and again through the doorway to her past, living two lives, impossibly, at once. But there’s an emotional toll to returning to a world where Freddie, alive, still owns her heart. Because there’s someone in her new life, her real life, who wants her to stay.

Not a bad read

I’ve read books with better writing and stronger plots in my day but this is a decent story to take up if you’re in the mood for something light and (generally) feel-good.

Fantastic read!

This book has everything... romance, heartbreak, self discovery. I don’t know how Josie fit so many emotions into one story but I’m happy that she did. With her words she paints a picture so deep that you feel it way down in your heart and soul. Your toes can’t help but curl with anticipation of each turning page. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for anybody who’s ever felt broken and needs to believe in hope again.

Better than her first!

I loved One Day in December, but this one was even better. The heartbreak of losing someone you love, is hard to articulate. But Ms. Silver does an outstanding job of communicating the ups and downs and back and forth of the grieving process. Well done!!! I loved the side adventure Lydia takes on her own. Beautiful addition to the story.
