Flora has always adored her brother Billy. Born just eighteen months apart, their childhood was spent like two peas in a pod – no one could separate them. Now, as adults, they remain the best of friends. And as Flora is immersed in family life, Billy is always there to lend a hand.

But, in just one day, everything changes.

In just one day, Flora’s life falls apart.

In just one day, Flora has to learn how to live again.

From the nostalgia of seaside Britain to the breath-taking beauty of Venice, in tears and laughter, join Helen McGinn for this emotional, uplifting and joyful story about love in all its guises. But above all, this is an unforgettable story of one little girl and the brother she adored.

In Just One Day by Helen McGinn is a heartbreaking story about one family, and how their whole life changed in one day, so fair warning! In Just One Day will give you all the feelings! Happy, sad, hopeful, heartbreak, and every other emotion you can think of. 

The characters in this book are wonderful, but we are mainly focused on Flora, but we also meet Flora's parents Robin and Kate, brother Billy, husband Johnny, just to begin with.  When you first start the book, you are somewhat quickly overwhelmed by all of the characters that come at you like fastballs, but it doesn’t take long for you to get used to everyone. The book is well written and you can't help but get swept away with the tale.

Overall I found In Just One Day a book full of tears and heartbreak, but you take away the wise words that heartbreak never goes away, it just gets easier.

I give In Just One Day 5 Stars
