The Bookseller Review

The Bookseller

Nothing is as permanent as it appears . . .

Denver, 1962: Kitty Miller has come to terms with her unconventional single life. She loves the bookshop she runs with her best friend, Frieda, and enjoys complete control over her day-to-day existence. She can come and go as she pleases, answering to no one. There was a man once, a doctor named Kevin, but it didn’t quite work out the way Kitty had hoped.

Then the dreams begin.

Denver, 1963: Katharyn Andersson is married to Lars, the love of her life. They have beautiful children, an elegant home, and good friends. It’s everything Kitty Miller once believed she wanted—but it only exists when she sleeps.

Convinced that these dreams are simply due to her overactive imagination, Kitty enjoys her nighttime forays into this alternate world. But with each visit, the more irresistibly real Katharyn’s life becomes. Can she choose which life she wants? If so, what is the cost of staying Kitty, or becoming Katharyn?

As the lines between her worlds begin to blur, Kitty must figure out what is real and what is imagined. And how do we know where that boundary lies in our own lives?

The dreams this bookseller has are very realistic.  I could see why the main character gets confused after a while, trying to determine which life is real.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  It was an interesting concept and I wondered what life would be like had a made a different choice, much like this character.  What would happen if you could go back to the decision point and make the other decision?  Which life would you enjoy more?  The wife and kids life now or if I had gone to college and continued my military career?  What a thought!   I can’t imagine life any other way right now, but I do know that life would have completely different had I not gotten married and had kids early in life.

This is a great book about a bookseller and the lives she must decide she wants.  What would you choose?
