Our Bookseller says:

So if the afterlife is a library, then God is a librarian? Well, in Nora’s case, yes. After the end of her life, Nora finds herself in a library filled with an infinite amount of books. Each book is an alternate version of her life. Follow Nora as she discovers if one of these alternate universes within each book is actually better than the life she had. This book shows just how interconnected our lives truly are and how every decision affects everyone else around us. Hopefully, this book will help transform your regrets into important lessons learned. Which book would you choose? – Kate

Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. While we all wonder how our lives might have been, what if you had the chance to go to the library and see for yourself? Would any of these other lives truly be better?

In The Midnight Library, Matt Haig’s enchanting blockbuster novel, Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; she must search within herself as she travels through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place.
