My Review:

In Just One Day is a heartbreaking yet uplifting novel about the loss of a son and brother and how to live again despite that loss.

It’s the first book I have reviewed by Helen McGinn and is powerful and sad.

The author deals with the hard parts of the plot in a way that they tell it like it is, but with a sensitivity towards the reader so that it is upsetting but respectfully written in a way that is captivating and made me want to keep going and never stop.

Far from shying away from difficult subjects, Helen mcGinn embraces them and I do too as I love a book that really grips me and makes me feel. In Just One Day is definitely one of those.

What makes the novel make a huge impression on me is that Flora and Billy are only eighteen months apart in age.

Thanks to Helen McGinn and Rachel’s Random Resources for my ARC in exchange for an honest and voluntary review.

5 stars.

    1. Yes it was. Glad you loved my review Wendy. Do you know of any other books that you’d recommend that are powerful, sad and hopeful? I recommend Pay It Forward by Catherine Ryan Hyde, The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans
