The Rearranged Life of Oona Lockhart

Author(s): Margarita Montimore

Fiction

'Reminiscent of Liane Moriarty's What Alice Forgot and Kate Atkinson's Life After Life, Oona is a delightfully freewheeling romp' Booklist (starred review)


If you knew your future, would you change your past?

Brooklyn, 1982. Oona Lockhart is about to celebrate her 19th birthday and ring in the New Year. But at the stroke of midnight, she is torn from her friends and boyfriend, finding herself in her fifty-one-year-old body, thirty-two years into the future.

Greeted by a friendly stranger, Oona learns that on every birthday she will enter a different year of her adult life at random. Still a young woman on the inside, but ever changing on the outside, who will she be next year? Wealthy philanthropist? Nineties Club Kid? World traveller? Wife to a man she's never met?

As she struggles between fighting her fate and accepting it, Oona must learn to navigate a life that's out of order - but is it broken?

Margarita Montimore's whip-smart debut is an uplifting joyride through an ever-changing world that shows us the endurance of love, the timelessness of family and what it means to truly live in the moment.

'A heartfelt novel that celebrates its implausibility with a unique joie de vivre' Kirkus
