Publisher's Summary

Are some white lies simply too big to forgive?

Eve and Leah are identical twins - but beyond that, they’re polar opposites. Struggling journalist Leah envies Eve’s seemingly perfect life - the loyal husband, the beautiful twin daughters, the stellar career - little knowing that what Eve longs for most is Leah’s independence.

When a shocking event upends their world, one woman seizes a split-second chance to change everything and follow her sister down a different life path. It’s a spontaneous choice, but there’s no going back. How will she deal with the fallout when covering up one untruth means lying to everyone - about everything?

One thing is clear: both twins have secrets, and both just want to be happy. But what price will they pay to live the life they’ve always wanted?

Revised edition: This edition of A Life Worth Living includes editorial revisions.

Enjoyable story

I found this book to be an enjoyable story. There was no crazy mystery to be solved, just a straightforward family drama with a twist.
No foul language. No sexually explicit scenes.

Parted and Joined, two souls in one body

I had this book on preorder since I'd quite enjoyed two of Louise's other books. When it landed I didn't even read the blurb, just jumped in cold, and really enjoyed it. Where the other books put their characters into difficult spots, and had themes of honesty and family, this one takes those ideas and turns them up to 11. Also reminds you that when you think you are seeing a bad person, you are really just seeing the result of bad decisions. Or what you think may be bad decisions!

There are some fortunate circumstances in the story, a few uncrossed lines that even the morally challenged protagonists refuse (or are not allowed) to countenance until it becomes "right" to do so. Also some wise words from unexpected sources that actually fall on open ears at the right times. Somewhat deus ex machina. But for all that, the book does not come across at all cheesy or contrived, and I think is Louise's best so far in this format. The dialogue, both internal an external, comes across as well observed. Looking forward to the next one!

From an identical twin

I really I enjoyed reading this book as my twin and I did
Switch classes in school, going on dates with the others boyfriend., answering the others phone and fooling our friends. There is a closeness with twins that can’t be with anyone else.
