Whole Day Through

£9.99

When forty-something Laura Lewis is obliged to abandon a life of stylish independence in Paris to care for her elderly mother in Winchester, it seems all romantic opportunities have gone up in smoke. Then she runs into Ben, the great love of her student days – and, as she only now dares admit, the emotional touchstone against which she has judged every man since. She’s cautious – and he’s married – but they can’t deny that feelings still exist between them. Are they brave enough to take the second chance at the lasting happiness that fate has offered them? Or will they be defeated by the need to do what seems to be the right thing?

Description

From the bestselling author of A PLACE CALLED WINTER, Patrick Gale’s THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH is the beautiful structured story of the choices we make when we come face to face with our past.

‘Wry, clever, faultlessly crafted’ Guardian


‘Poignant and acutely observed’ Daily Express

Laura Lewis has left her life in Paris and returned home to Winchester to care for her aging, but still sharp mother. Ben has moved away from his beautiful and loyal wife to support his brother, living alone since their mother’s death. A chance encounter reminds them both of the relationship – and the spark – they once shared.

In the course of a single summer’s day, they come face to face with the feelings of love and regret they share, and the choices they must make; whether to be true to themselves, or to what they believe is the right thing to do.
