I received the audiobook of The Left Turn: Two Lives, Worlds Apart by Becky Parker Geist through the Netgalley platform.
Hannah, a 46-year-old author plagued by anxiety, and her partner James, an HR recruiter caught in a headlock of grief over his brother’s death, are both desperate for inner peace but unsure how to find it.
However, shortly after moving to the San Francisco Bay Area, they go on a sunny bike ride, and a split-second decision propels them into different versions of their lives—versions they don’t recognise as their own. With a mental fog obscuring their recent past and identity, they are forced to look within themselves to discover who they are now. Surprising revelations about the nature of the universe send them on a psychological journey to discover who they can be.
This book had me feeling a little maudlin. So many convenient coincidences, I suppose, typical of novels. But the story itself was enjoyable enough to rate 3/5 stars.
