About Between You and Us

When a grieving woman unexpectedly steps into a different version of her life, she must choose between the husband she loves and the daughter she lost in this brave, gripping novel.

Three lives. Two outcomes. One impossible choice.

Leona hopes enjoying a rare upscale meal with her husband David will help them begin learning how to live again after their shared tragedy. But when she crosses the threshold of the ridiculously romantic restaurant, she quickly realizes she doesn’t belong. It’s not only her thrifted dress or the menu printed in Italian, it’s all the clues pointing to the fact she’s in a different version of her life—the one where she and David accepted all the strings attached to his parent’s wealth and power. Instead of struggling to pay rent, she lives in a lavish home with working faucets. She’s no longer teaching English to high schoolers, but attending brunch with a bunch of high society busybodies (a.k.a. her mother-in-law).

Leona would put more effort into figuring out how to get home, but there’s one thing stealing all her attention: a precious little girl with her green eyes and David’s curly hair. In this outcome of her life, her daughter Vera lived. Now, Leona must weigh the bitter and sweet of each world, choosing between the chance to be with Vera under the impossible expectations of her in-laws and distant husband, or the life altered by grief with the man she loves.
