If your past vanished? Who might you become?
Hannah, a forty-six year old author plagued with anxiety, and her partner James, an HR recruiter caught in a headlock of grief over his brother’s death, are as desperate for inner peace as they are clueless about how to find it.
But when they embark on a sunny bike ride shortly after moving to the San Francisco Bay Area, a split-second decision propels them into different versions of their lives—ones they don’t recognize as their own. With a mental fog obscuring their recent past and who they were, they are forced to dig inside themselves to figure out who they are now. Surprising discoveries about the nature of the universe send them on a psychological journey towards who they can be.
Will they be able to let go of their deeply ingrained subconscious beliefs about life and themselves to embrace the unfamiliar potentials they now face?
Reminiscent of the film Sliding Doors and novels The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, The Midnight Library by Matt Haig, and The Two Lives of Lydia Byrd by Josie Silver.
A Note From the Publisher

"The book is amazing! I love the way Becky uses words! The way the story unfolds and they are part of the story, I love it! and the idea of writing your own story, I mean, I think we inherently know that we shape our own destiny but it gets lost and we forget and we think that life happens to us, but we CAN make happen whatever we believe."
"I couldn't put it down! What a great story, weaving so many elements and life lessons. I really connected with the journey of life being crappy and having to deal with it, changing to: I can choose and life can be better every day. I connected to the synchronicities... all of it, the fact that they happen, noticing them and starting to embrace them in life."
"I had to make myself stop because I had other things to do and I was afraid that I would stay up until the wee hours reading!"

Hannah and James lives are stuck in a cycle of anxiety and grief. One day they go on a bike ride and their lives are turned upside down. Suddenly, their version of lives they were living have changed. Will they embrace this change and live their lives to their fullest potential or will they search their memories of their former lives? This was an amazing story about second chances and wonderfully written characters. I listened to the audiobook version of this story and I enjoyed the narration.
