    Greta Wells embarks on a radical psychiatric treatment to alleviate her suffocating depression. But the treatment has unexpected effects, and Greta finds herself transported to the lives she might have had if she'd been born in different eras. During the course of her treatment, Greta cycles between her own time and alternate lives in 1918, where she is a bohemian adulteress, and 1941, which transforms her into a devoted mother and wife. As her final treatment looms, questions arise: What will happen once each Greta learns how to remain in one of the other worlds?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would and have recommended this book to friends. I bought another copy for a really good friend who also loved it.


    What other book might you compare The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells to and why?

    I'd compare it to "The Confessions of Max Tivoli" not just because they share the same author but also for seeing a person's life in different times.


    What about Orlagh Cassidy’s performance did you like?

    Orlagh Cassidy was Greta Wells for me. Great performance without being a show off.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Know yourself, Greta.
