Publisher's Summary

The day Mia Jensen died, she finally got to live....

What if?

We’ve all played the “what if” game. For Mia Jensen, “what if” is a fact of life. Dissatisfied with her choices, she often dreams about what could have been. Now she has the chance to know. But that knowledge is going to cost her dearly. Only through death can she fully realize the value of her life. 

*

Forty-year-old Mia Jensen is home after a terrible day, trying to figure out how she’s come to this point in her life, when she hears a strange noise from the kitchen. She investigates, only to be brutally attacked and left for dead. As she dies, she experiences some of the lives that could have been hers had she only made a different choice. 

Can one woman can find peace with the path she’s chosen before it slips through her fingers forever?

*

Through the unique voices of New York Times bestsellers and rising stars in women’s fiction, A Thousand Doors examines how our smallest decisions can create lasting effects, and allows the thought - can we actually change our lives?

Not what I anticipated.

I thought this book would be about a woman who relives different versions of “what could’ve been” — as herself, just in different circumstances. I got about 1/3 in and each story so far just uses her name and some random story of what could’ve been. Her essence of who she is isn’t preserved, it isn’t carried on in each story. It’s just a collection of individual stories, like her passions, personality and even age are different for each version. I understand that’s how it is probably supposed to be, but I thought it was going to be more cohesive and thoughtful.
