ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Shari Low is the No1 best-selling author of over 20 novels, including One Day In December, A Life Without You, The Story Of Our Life, With Or Without You and her latest release, Another Day In Winter. And because she likes to over-share toe-curling moments and hapless disasters, she is also the shameless mother behind a collection of parenthood memories called Because Mummy Said So. Once upon a time she met a guy, got engaged after a week, and twenty-something years later she lives near Glasgow with her husband, a labradoodle, and two teenagers who think she’s fairly embarrassing except when they need a lift.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
This is… Denise.
Married to Ray, her first and only love, Denise has never for one moment regretted putting the husband she idolised on a pedestal above everyone and everything else. But, after forty years of marriage, he is gone, leaving Denise to discover that their perfect marriage was fatally flawed. Now she faces a future alone, but first she must face the betrayals of the past.
This is… Claire.
The estranged daughter of Denise, the woman who put her husband before her children, Claire took the opposite path and devoted her life to raising her family, sacrificing her marriage along the way. With her teenage sons about to flee the nest, she realises she may have left it too late to find her own happy ever after.
This is the story of two women, both alone, both cautionary tales of one of motherhood’s biggest decisions.
Who is more important, your partner or your children? And what happens if you make the wrong choice?

Yet another triumph of a book from Shari Low. You are absolutely guaranteed a good read when you pick up one of her novels.
The story focuses on two main characters, Denise and Claire, mother and daughter, but with a difficult relationship.
The plot flicks back and forth between Denise’s story and Claire’s, and between the present day and the past. As the story develops we see what has made these women who they are today.
It’s a story about love and family, and also friendship. Claire has some wonderful friends, including some of my old favourites from Shari’s previous novels. Denise has isolated herself from so many people, including her own family, due to her all-consuming love for her husband. Now Denise is on her own, and feeling the effects of having pushed everyone away.
This is a book that will completely pull you in, it’s such a page-turner. It’s got love, laughter and such a wonderfully flowing plot, with characters that you feel you know.
Highly recommended, a great read.
