Summary ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Kate Hope Day Kate Hope Day ☆ 8 characters review ´ If Then AUTHOR Kate Hope Day 108 Ents may have kept from her Cass a brilliant scholar struggling with the demands of new motherhood catches a glimpse of herself pregnant again just as she’s on the brink of returning to the project that could define her careerAt first the visions are relatively benign but they grow increasingly disturbing and in some cases frightening When a natural disaster threatens Clearing it becomes obvious that the visions were not what they first seemed and that the town will never be the sam Can speculative domestic dramas be a new trend Because I would like to read at least five books like this one It takes the kind of complex character building I really enjoy and adds unexpected elements and surreal twists that keep it from feeling like anything close to the same old thingAt the heart of this book is what usually exists just in your mind as you wonder what other paths your life could have taken if you d made a different decision But in this book those other selves are ever so briefly made real to a group of characters in an Oregon town In the middle of a normal day they will see for an instant another version of themselves that is much the same but slightly different As these visions recur they have varying conseuences for everyone involved A woman starts to wonder about the possibility of life with a female coworker by her side instead of her husband A daughter views glimpses of her recently dead mother planning a new start and starts to reconsider who her mother was I particularly loved Cass the brilliant philosopher turned new mom who is not sure she will ever go back to finish her PhD She reminded me of two other recent brilliant female characters in 2019 novels in LOST AND WANTED and THE TENTH MUSE and I am hopeful there are even comingThis is the kind of book that could do really well in a book club generating a lot of discussion and a good way to dip your toe into speculative fiction for clubs that may be hesitant to move into genre novels
