She was the most famous woman in the world. She died tragically, too young, in a terrible accident. The world mourned. Monica Ali, the beloved author of Brick Lane, explores the extraordinary question:what if she hadnt died?

Lydia lives in a nondescript town somewhere in the American Midwest. Shes a nice, normal woman - if strikingly beautiful. She lives a nice, normal life: her friends are normal, her job is normal, her hobbies are normal. Her friends and boyfriend adore her.

But her past is shrouded in mystery. Who is Lydia? Where does she come from? And why is her English accent so posh?

Lydia is a woman with secrets. Extraordinary secrets. She might even be the most famous woman on the planet... a woman whose death the world mourned by millions.

Who is she?
