    Could you use another life? This is the story of a woman who has the courage to reinvent herself. Heirs to the Jackson textile mill, designer Dani and her singer/songwriter twin Dylan feel free to follow the siren call of the music world - until they’re interrupted by a car accident. With Dani behind the wheel, her father ends up on a stretcher. Youthful free spirits cut short, Dani swaps her fringed jacket for a business suit, the Red Hot Chili Peppers for the Brandenburg concertos.

    Story

    This is the first time I've listened to an audiobook and really felt that the audio production had enhanced the story in a way not possible on the written page. The story - about a woman with two husbands - is told by a patchwork of voice actors and structured around a playlist of songs that feels right at home in the world the author has created.

    Dani, the protagonist, is a fascinating character - after her life is turned upside down by a car accident, we follow her through the twists and turns that lead her into a double life.

    We learn about her family's aging textile mill, her rebellious indie singer/songwriter brother, Dylan, her awkward (and also very funny) first husband, Gunner, and his preoccupation with fertility (he's a doctor), and her second husband's exciting life as a rock-climbing guru.

    Every stage of Dani's journey is told with rich and absorbing detail - you won't want the story to end!

    A great find - and a great listen.
