Product Details


The Two Lives of Lydia Bird offers wit in abundance, deeply satisfying characterization, and a mega-dose of heart. What a journey these characters take, and what magic this author uses to bring each of them alive. Josie Silver is fresh, insightful, and daring. Her voice is one of rising strength in women’s fiction today.”—Barbara Delinsky, New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Salt Air 

“I read The Two Lives of Lydia Bird in a single sitting—crying, laughing, and rooting for the heroine, who reminds us that the people we love,and the people we lose,change us, and that who we are at the beginning of our story is never who we are at the end of it. What a beautiful, emotional gift Josie Silver has given us.”—Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and A Spark of Light

“Another irresistible love story.”The Skimm
“[A] captivating story.”—HelloGiggles
“Silver strikes gold for a second time with this tale . . . [and] delivers an ending that’s as rewarding as it is revelatory.”—Electric Literature

“At its core, this is a story of love lost and individual growth. But it is also about love found and future happiness. While this is in many ways the complete opposite of Linda Holmes’ Evvie Drake Starts Over, fans of that book will enjoy it.”Kirkus Reviews

“Silver’s latest (after One Day in December) is a heartbreaking, poignant tale. . . . Through lush prose, expert plotting, and richly imagined characters, Silver offers an achingly real portrait of grief transposed with the character’s intoxicating parallel universe. This will stay with readers long after the final page is turned.”Publishers Weekly 

“As much a meditation on healing after loss as it is a gently developed love story . . . with excellent characters who all get a chance to experience growth, Silver’s wonderful follow-up to One Day in December (2018) will be sure to appeal to existing fans and draw in new ones with its humor, heart, and excellent prose.”Booklist (starred review)
