My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book for Reader’s Favorite, purchased my own copy to support the author via Amazon, and wanted to share my review with our blog readers as well:

Applause applause for this ultra-creative time travel story. In My Two Lives by Jan Hunter, main character Jill Woods is a lovely Brit school teacher in her early thirties, who keeps her life as simple as possible and her heart well-protected—she’s had her fill of bad times, bad luck, and bad relationships. Until one day, while withdrawing a book from the stockroom of the history department at school, she finds herself pulled into a past life, where she works as a governess for a wealthy family. The upheaval of being bounced back and forth from her current life to 150 years ago is almost her undoing as she seeks to understand the reason she has been called to this parallel universe. As she slowly untangles the pieces of her current and former self, the answer becomes remarkably clear, changing her future forever.

This book is about unrequited love and second chances. It’s about laughing at oneself and appreciating one’s gifts. It’s about reconciling one’s past with one’s present. My Two Lives is unique and refreshing, as are the endearing characters who complete the picture. I laughed continuously throughout the story, as the first-person delivery of the tale (all seen through Jill’s eyes) charmed me with self-effacing, good-natured humor. I was pleasantly entertained by this story throughout its entirety. The transitions between main character Jill’s two lives and the message therein is so beautifully done by author Jan Hunter, I honestly wanted to applaud at the conclusion. But then I wanted it to keep going too. I highly recommend this novel, which is quite unlike anything I’ve yet read, and look forward to reading more by Jan Hunter.
