Do you ever look back and wonder, What if...?
Meet Sylvie — funny, sly, sensual and flawed. She can’t always count on herself to make good choices. Like all of us, Sylvie must make decisions that have reverberations for years to come. Unlike the rest of us, Sylvie gets to live more than one life.
"Sylvie, the engaging heart of this inventive novel-in-stories, is a woman who truly contains multitudes. With these tales of rash decisions, romance, mishaps and missteps, Leona Theis delves deeply into the layers that make up a life, many times over. Readers will be surprised and entertained as they get to know a new Sylvie in each chapter, every one a gem."
"If Sylvie Had Nine Lives is a remarkable book, a palimpsest of different versions of a life that gives us a haunting, thrilling glimpse of the slender choices our lives hang by and the tangled threads that make even the simplest of them infinite mysteries."
