Do you ever look back and wonder, What if...?

Editorial Reviews

"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."

— Nino Ricci

"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."

— Julie Paul
