The day Mia Jensen died, she finally got to live.
Mia Jensen is not having a good day. Her life hasn’t turned out the way she thought and now she is lying on her kitchen floor, dying. Stabbed by her husband.
But in those moments she is allowed to see her own What if? moment. And to do that Ellison has brought in a group of authors that are nothing short of brilliant! What if she had chosen to be a mother? A politician’s wife? Would she have chosen a different path?
This is one of those pieces of work that come along and leaves you thinking about every life choice you have ever made. And what would you do if you had the chance for a do over?
Each story tells a different path and outcome. I have no idea how all of these authors come together and speak with the same voice. I have never read anything like this and it is just a brilliant idea and body of work. And yes I’ve used the word brilliant more than once. I find myself wandering around my house thinking, ” That was bloody brilliant!” and this is not something I normally do. I’m jaded. I’ve read it all. Except this.
Very Well Done All Of You!
