Description

It's this that many readers will relate to as there are so many families that are different from the 'Norm'.

The story follows all four family members as they deal with the absence of Leni, a powerful personality. I really liked the flashbacks to Leno on the memorial page, the stories showed how Leni touched so many lives, selflessly at times. In the hope of coming to terms with her grief, she tries to piece together Leni’s last weeks – but her discoveries only lead to more questions.

I absolutely loved the author's writing - her words are fluid and poetic, which makes the story engaging and deeply passionate.

It reminds us to make the most of every second and spend time with our loved ones even doing the most mundane things. The different family dynamics in the book are truly relatable and I was left rooting for them all to resolve their issues together. As the book moves on, through their grief they all learn things about themselves, they learn to support each other, to forgive and to try to move on.Scattered by grief and seeking comfort in the unlikeliest of places, can the McKenzies find their way back to each other?

Belinda finds comfort in her many conversations with a telephone clairvoyant who is able to speak to her daughter and pass messages back from beyond the grave. The characters were so well written, with each persons individual journey and development always leaving me wanting more. The best day of our lives' is a beautiful story about love (in so many ways), grief, strength and overcoming your pain to build something amazing out of it. Tony, Leni’s dad, is a classic example of this, and I really admired and loved his character by the end.

There are a few little mysteries along the way which do add to the story - Leni's story particularly, but I feel its these mysteries that help give closure to a devastating tragedy. It was heart breaking and moving to discover how this fictional family handled one of the worst curveballs that they can ever be thrown. UK popular contemporary fiction author Lucy Diamond pens a family drama saga that fans will appreciate. He can’t believe this is happening and is not overly keen to get involved with preparations thinking everything will be just as it was when his older kids were born. But I found this one to be just ok, I didn’t love it and I didn’t dislike it so I guess I’m somewhere in between.
