Of Love & Tears
One Day With You by Shari Low is a beautiful, heartbreaking contemporary read that will tug at your heartstrings.
My emotions were all over the place as I read. It is a book that celebrates friendship, family and new life whilst mourning endings with regrets for what might have been.
Life is fragile. We get one go at it. One reckless mistake can destroy lives. Our choices need to be made well. We do not live our lives in isolation, our choices affect others for good or bad. We must let go of guilt and regret as they will destroy us from the inside out.
Family is so much more than blood relations. In the story, family are those who come to our aid in our darkest moments and also our happiest moments.
All the characters were realistic, likable and well-drawn. There are some huge, beautiful hearts. I love the neighbours in their sixties. Their banter is hilarious. Their kind hearts are vast and their capacity to love is huge.
We are never too old to have a new beginning as a school reunion shows – but it also throws up some surprising results too.
The action is set over just twenty four hours and from alternating points of view. It was extremely well thought out and executed. I was totally gripped by it all. I read with in trepidation at times. My heart swelled with joy and my eyes welled with tears.
This was my first book by Shari Low. I am now a huge fan of hers and I want to devour all that she has written.
One Day With You is simply breathtakingly beautiful.

One Day With You
One day, five lives, but whose hearts will be broken by nightfall?
It started like any other day in the picturesque village of Weirbridge.
Tress Walker waved her perfect husband Max off to work, with no idea that she was about to go into labour with their first child. And completely unaware that when she tried to track Max down, he wouldn’t be where he was supposed to be.
At the same time, Max’s best friend Noah Clark said goodbye to his wife, Anya, blissfully oblivious that he would soon discover the woman he adored had been lying to him for years.
And living alongside the two couples, their recently widowed friend, Nancy Jenkins, is getting ready to meet Eddie, her first true love at a school reunion. Will Nancy have the chance to rekindle an old flame, or will she choose to stay by Tress’s side when she needs her most?
One Day with You – two fateful goodbyes, two unexpected hellos, and 24 hours that change everything.
