Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine how different your life would be if you had made other choices at a crucial turning point in the past. Aquamarine probes that tantalizing idea through the character of Jesse Austin, a former Olympic swimmer who, at age 17, lost the gold medal in the Mexico City games--a loss that has haunted her ever since.

Synopsis:

Olympic swimmer Jesse Austin is seduced and consequently edged out for a gold medal by her Australian rival. From there, Anshaw intricately traces three possible paths for Jesse, spinning exhilarating variations on the themes of lost love and parallel lives unlived. Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard Out of Carolina, writes, "I found myself wishing I could buy a dozen copies and start a discussion group, just so I'd be able to debate all the questions this astonishing novel provokes." A Reader's Guide is available.
