Meet Sylvie – funny, sly, sensual, and flawed. She can’t always count on herself to make good choices. Like all of us, Sylvie must make decisions that have reverberations for years to come. Unlike the rest of us, Sylvie gets to live more than one life.
“If Sylvie Had Nine Lives is a remarkable book . . . a haunting, thrilling glimpse of the slender choices our lives hang by.” – Nino Ricci
