If Clare had made different choices, her brother might still be alive. But those roads not taken are about to come back and haunt her . . . for real.

Clare's unhappy life hasn't gone the way she expected. At the age of thirty-three she's still an accountant, still unmarried and haunted by failed love affairs. Even worse, she's ridden with guilt over the tragic death of her brother. Her obsession with roads not taken, decisions that might have changed her life, drive her into a nervous breakdown, until she comes to realise that she inhabits a quantum universe, where there are many different Clares, who must all have different - better - lives. The lives that could have been - should have been - hers.

But when she explores these other existences, she discovers that while each Clare is utterly different, they are still her - but they are far from the perfect lives she was imagining. In one she is trapped in a mental ward; in another, doomed to a failed relationship; in the next, she finds herself looking into the eyes of her dead brother, until, wherever she turns, another Clare usurps her own existence, until she is force into the ultimate confrontation with madness - and truth . . .
