Is Lucy’s life ‘meant to be’ . . . or meant to be different?
Lucy’s life is at a crossroads. She’s just walked out of her unrewarding job and has no idea about her next step: use her savings to pursue her dream of becoming a writer, or move to London to try and revive her career? It almost seems like fate that on that same night she meets Caleb, a stranger in a bar, and runs into Max, the one-time love of her life.
Should Lucy stay in the seaside town she grew up in, and in doing so, get to know Caleb better? Or should she go to London and reconnect with Max again after he broke her heart a decade ago? It’s just one decision – but sometimes one decision can change the course of your whole life . . .
WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN is a sweeping and unforgettable novel for anyone who has ever believed in destiny and soulmates – or paused to wonder what your life might look like if you’d made a different choice.
I read this for a group buddy read after we all loved reading ‘The Sight Of You’ together, by the same author.
This one certainly lived up to those high expectations.
It was so wonderfully woven with two timelines which crossed over so cleverly.
It was highly emotional, especially towards the end but it left me thinking about life and how the choices we make have such a profound impact.
A beautiful story (or technically two stories), with an ending which, upon reflection, I actually really loved.
