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 "Row
