On Tour 08/10/23-09/21/23 “The Other Year” by Rea Frey

Release Date:
August 15, 2023

About The Book:

On a coveted two-week beach vacation, working mom Kate Baker’s nine-year-old daughter, Olivia, vanishes suddenly among the waves—a heart-dropping single moment that threatens to uproot her entire life. But in the next moment, Olivia resurfaces, joyously splashing.

What would I do if she didn’t come up? Kate wonders. How would I live without her?

In another set of circumstances that hold a different fate, Kate doesn’t have to wonder. Because in that “other” world, in the pulse-pounding seconds after Olivia goes under, she doesn’t come back up.

Told in parallel timelines, one in which Olivia lives and one in which she doesn’t, readers experience Kate’s life over the course of a year. In the reality that follows her daughter’s death, she maneuvers through every mother’s worst nightmare, from the deepest throes of grief and rage to the unfathomable question of purpose in the aftermath of such profound loss. She endures, day by day, in a world without her daughter.

In the opposite timeline, while she explores a tremulous romance with her best friend, Jason, she finds herself facing a bitter custody battle with the ex-husband who abandoned Kate and Olivia years prior. Even as Kate scrambles to hold her daughter close, Olivia pulls further away. Kate feels losing custody of her daughter is the worst thing imaginable—but of course, there are different kinds of loss when it comes to the ones we love.

Woven into a single story, both Kates discover a breathtaking finality to their respective journeys. Bringing to light drastic polarities dire circumstances often create, The Other Year also unveils astonishing truths about loss and time. Told with unflinching authority that will force every reader out of their comfort zone, Kate’s stories examine the sharp turns any life can take “in the blink of an eye”—ultimately issuing a challenge to live with eyes wide open.
