The day Mia Jensen died, she finally got to live...
We’ve all played the “what if” game. For Mia Jensen, “what if” is a fact of life. Dissatisfied with her choices, she often dreams about what could have been. Now she has the chance to know. But that knowledge is going to cost her dearly. Only through death can she fully realize the value of her life.
Forty-year-old Mia Jensen is home after a terrible day, trying to figure out how she’s come to this point in her life, when she hears a strange noise from the kitchen. She investigates, only to be brutally attacked and left for dead. As she dies, she experiences some of the lives that could have been hers had she only made a different choice.
Can one woman can find peace with the path she’s chosen before it slips through her fingers forever?
Through the unique voices of New York Times bestsellers and rising stars in women’s fiction, A THOUSAND DOORS examines how our smallest decisions can create lasting effects, and allows the thought—can we actually change our lives?
"A fascinating premise lifts this excellent anthology... this volume not only provides great pleasure but also offers readers the opportunity to sample the work of first-class writers who may be new to them."
- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"[T]his powerful, moving and fascinating anthology featuring 16 multitalented authors, many of whom I've already read and loved, and a few more I now feel compelled to read. I don't typically enjoy short stories, but after seeing the impressive list of contributors, I knew I had to get my hands on this one. [M]y favorite chapters -are written by Kimberly Belle, Ariel Lawhon, Joy Jordan-Lake, A.F. Brady and Heather Gudenkauf. All five are amazing and so well-thought-out and executed. Every word counts in a short story, and I found theirs to be the most powerful, shocking and/or entertaining.
A decade in the making, A THOUSAND DOORS is worth the wait."
