free read If Then by Kate Hope Day 106 Ents may have kept from her Cass a brilliant scholar struggling with the demands of new motherhood catches a glimpse of herself pregnant again just as she’s on the brink of returning to the project that could define her careerAt first the visions are relatively benign but they grow increasingly disturbing and in some cases frightening When a natural disaster threatens Clearing it becomes obvious that the visions were not what they first seemed and that the town will never be the sam. If Then is a uiet speculative novel about four neighbors living in suburban Oregon Ginny and Mark are an unhappily married couple Samara is a young woman coping with the recent death of her mother and Cass is a young mom who s had to sacrifice her academic ambitions for motherhood Gradually the novel introduces the possibility of parallel realities which have begun to overlap as each character starts to see visions of an alternate version of themselves Throughout the course of the short novel we study each of these characters and unearth the decisions each of them made which prevented their other self s reality from coming to fruition While I enjoyed this from start to finish and found the ending in particular to be utterly brilliant I ultimately think I was hoping for from this novel s speculative angle Suburban life is chronicled convincingly and each character is constructed carefully but I don t think this digs deep enough to be the kind of character driven novel it s trying to be This could have been offset by the concept of parallel realities playing a larger role but instead that element is of a vehicle used by the author to explore the novel s central concept if I had done this instead of that then what would have happened as a result Still it s a uick and thought provoking read and though it s underdeveloped in places I think some of the ideas it raises are interesting enough to make up for that 35 stars Thank you to Netgalley and Random House for the advanced copy provided in exchange for an honest review
