REVIEW of A Thousand Doors: An Anthology of Many Lives

Kindle Edition, 404 pages
Published November 5th 2018 by Two Tales Press

The day Mia Jensen died, she finally got to live.


We’ve all played the “what if” game. For Mia Jensen, “what if” is a fact of life. Dissatisfied with her choices, she often dreams about what could have been. Now she has the chance to know. But that knowledge is going to cost her dearly. Only through death can she fully realize the value of her life.


Forty-year-old Mia Jensen is home after a terrible day, trying to figure out how she’s come to this point in her life, when she hears a strange noise from the kitchen. She investigates, only to be brutally attacked and left for dead. As she dies, she experiences some of the lives that could have been hers had she only made a different choice.

Can one woman can find peace with the path she’s chosen before it slips through her fingers forever?


Through the unique voices of New York Times bestsellers and rising stars in women’s fiction, A THOUSAND DOORS examines how our smallest decisions can create lasting effects, and allows the thought—can we actually change our lives?

My Thoughts…

I am not a fan of anthologies.   The idea of many short, very short, stories being put in one book, not having continuous storylines is not the type of book I usually enjoy.   But in A Thousand Doors, I found that I couldn’t stop reading the stories one after another.   The difference with this collection is that they have the same beginning.     Mia dies and the rest of the stories are a collection of what her life could have been written by many well-known authors. 

The fun part of an anthology is that you can put the book down and come back to it without missing a beat.    Finish one short story and you can go read a different book, come back and the story picks right back up where it left off.        A Thousand Doors is a great variety of stories with J.T. Ellison starting the collection and then tying it all up perfectly.
