Title Profile & Character Information

The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells

Annotation
Like Greers The Confessions of Max Tivoli, one of my favorites and a New York Times best seller, this novel plays smartly with time. In 1985, Greta Wells is so distraught by her twin brothers death and her breakup with a longtime lover that she seeks therapy. The un-expected effect: she finds herself living alternate lives as a bohemian adulteress in 1918 and a dedicated wife and mother in 1941. With a 100,000-copy first printing.
