‘A beautifully told story of real love and real life. I loved it’ Miranda Dickinson

‘Clever, moving, funny, insightful’ Zoë Folbigg, author of THE NOTE

If you are looking for the perfect love story for summer 2019, then escape with the book readers are calling ‘happy, sad, emotional & uplifting’, ‘heartbreaking’ and ‘real and honest.’

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.

Moving, honest, sad and hopeful, it's a beautifully told story of real love and real life. I loved it.
Didn't start work when I woke up this morning. I had a cuppa and finished Jamie Fewery's book and it made me do a proper ugly cry. So that's a glowing endorsement for Our Life in a Day'
