The Day We Met

The Day We Met

(2015)
A novel by

 
For fans of Jojo Moyes's Me Before You comes a beautifully written, heartwarming novel about mothers and daughters, husbands and wives. The Day We Met asks: Can you love someone you don't remember falling in love with?

A gorgeous husband, two beautiful children, a job she loves - Claire's got it all. And then some. But lately, her mother hovers more than a helicopter, her husband, Greg, seems like a stranger, and her kids are like characters in a movie. Three-year-old Esther's growing up in the blink of an eye, and twenty-year-old Caitlin, with her jet-black hair and clothes to match, looks like she's about to join a punk band - and seems to be hiding something. Most concerning, however, is the fact that Claire is losing her memory, including that of the day she met Greg.

A chance meeting with a handsome stranger one rainy day sets Claire wondering whether she and Greg still belong together: She knows she should love him, but she can't always remember why. In search of an answer, Claire fills the pages of a blank book Greg gives her with private memories and keepsakes, jotting down beginnings and endings and everything in between. The book becomes the story of Claire - her passions, her sorrows, her joys, her adventures in a life that refuses to surrender to a fate worse than dying: disappearing.

Praise for The Day We Met

"[Rowan] Coleman executes another incredibly powerful novel that is beautifully written. The story is so well-crafted, it's impossible to put the book down. The tale is so poignant and heartbreaking that readers will be completely engrossed with the characters while experiencing a wide array of emotions." - RT Book Reviews

"[The Day We Met] is, at heart, a book about mothers, daughters and the strong bonds that exist between women even during heartbreak. Coleman will make you cry with this emotional, beautifully written novel." - Kirkus Reviews

"As with Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes, I couldn't put this book down." - Katie Fforde

"Rowan Coleman's heartbreaking, humorous novel about a family in crisis vividly reminded me about the fierce, resilient core in all kinds of love. Readers of Lisa Genova's Still Alice and Elin Hilderbrand's Beautiful Day will especially savor this book." - Nancy Thayer
