If Sylvie Had Nine Lives in Chatelaine

Chatelaine included Leona Theis’s If Sylvie Had Nine Lives in their list of 6 New Lighthearted Books to Read This Fall. Thanks to Casey Plett for including it!

This rich novel is as wry and full of heart as an early Kacey Musgraves song. Theis follows Sylvie, a zesty, messy woman from the prairies, through nine different possible life paths she might have taken. This book belies its title: It feels so intensely like a life.
