Versions of Her by Andrea Lochen

A secret door covered by a tapestry that Kelsey and her sister Melanie were never allowed to move when they were children held and hid secrets of its own.

The secret door allowed Kelsey and Melanie to see their mother’s life and to see her secrets, heartaches, and feelings that they never knew about.

I’m not sure how I would feel if I could see what my mother’s life had been like, but it would be quite interesting.
The current problem now that they found this door, though, was that Kelsey and Melanie had to decide whether or not to sell their family’s lake house or keep it.  

Selling it meant the memories would be gone forever. Keeping it would preserve the memories but also incur expensive upkeep.  Melanie was all for selling the house, but Kelsey was not in favor of selling it.

I enjoyed learning about the cottage and the memories associated with it and finding the portal for time travel.  It also had me wondering if time travel like this was actually possible because
time traveling through the portal seemed real.
This was a creative premise for a book and a book that also addressed sibling rivalry as well as sibling closeness. 

VERSIONS OF HER was a cozy, nostalgic, heartfelt, and at times heartbreaking read.  You will need tissues.

Women’s fiction fans will adore this book.  

Readers will experience family, love, and a light, yet thought-provoking read.  5/5

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
