The rules are simple: choose the most significant moments from your relationship – one for each hour in the day.
You’d probably pick when you first met, right?
And the instant you knew for sure it was love?
Maybe even the time you watched the sunrise after your first night together?
But what about the car journey on the holiday where everything started to go wrong? Or your first proper fight?
Or that time you lied about where you’d been?
It’s a once in a lifetime chance to learn the truth.
But if you had to be completely honest with the one you love, would you still play?
For Esme and Tom, the game is about to begin. But once they start, there’s no going back . . .
Following Esme and Tom’s relationship over twenty-four individual hours of ups, downs and everything in between, Our Life in a Day is the most heartbreaking and moving love story you’ll read in 2019 – perfect for fans of Josie Silver’s One Day in December, Jojo Moyes, and Roxie Cooper’s The Day We Met.
Our Life In A Day is available in ebook and paperback now. You can purchase a copy of both using the link below.
I so enjoyed this book! Our Life In A Day is a charming but heartbreaking read which is made even more so by how realistic the story is.
The story follows Esme and Tom as they talk about their relationship in a very frank and honest way. This is what stood out for me most about this book as too often relationships in books are all very romantic and wonderful, so it was great to read about a real relationship, warts and all. Some of the arguments that the couple have are ones that I’ve had with my husband so it was nice to realise it’s not just us that have them!
I wasn’t too sure about Esme to start with as she seemed quite bossy and had lots of rules that she expected Tom to follow, which my husband would have had some choice words to say about if I’d tried to implement them. I did warm to her though as I learnt more about her and felt quite sorry for her as the story progresses.
My only slight niggle with this book is that the events the couple discuss aren’t in a chronological order which was a little confusing at times. I found I kept having to check the chapter Headings to remind myself where I was in the story.
This is a beautifully written book which made me laugh and cry in equal measures. There were lots of recognisable scenarios which helps the reader to connect to the characters and feel sympathy with them. Its also very well plotted with lots to keep the reader interested and surprisingly gripping as it’s impossible not to get absorbed into the story.
Huge thanks to Tracy Fenton for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Orion for my copy of this book via Netgalley.
