Emotive story of Family Life – In Just One Day by Helen McGinn – #Review #BlogTour

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 adores. 

My Review:

Thanks to both Boldwood Books and NetGalley, too,
For the copy of this book I’ve read, here’s my honest review:

This is a moving story of family life
Complete with joys, trouble, grief and strife.
It is very different, with lots of gorgeous wines
And some tasty Italian meals on which to dine.

It involves changing plans and making a fresh start,
Working together and being torn apart.
There’s a wine shop, Ten Green Bottles, in need of a makeover
Which Flora and Johnny decide to takeover.

The story is filled with characters who 
It is very easy to relate to.
There’s tragedy and love, hurt and pain
Grief and learning to live again.

Friends and relations all have their roles to play
With romance, infidelity and love along the way.
It's a story about grief, joy, forgiveness and more
And living life to the full, we never know what's in store.

If you’re looking for a story to make you feel
With events and scenarios that could easily be real
I highly recommend you read this book - 
It may even inspire you to try new wines and cook!

      It portrays everything happening, the angst and grief, without being maudlin and is quite positive in many ways despite the events. Thanks, Jenny, hope you get chance to read it, too.
