My Thoughts


Shari Low is one of those authors who always have me eagerly anticipating getting my hands on their new release, so when given the opportunity too read and review One Summer Sunrise I jumped at the chance.

This story is full to the brim with drama, as we follow the lives of three very different people. First we meet Maisie, a woman who is determined to find out what exactly was going through her ex fiancé’s mind when he jilted her at the alter. This is obviously something that is hard to simply ‘get over’, and Maisie feels she can’t really move forward until she gets the answers she so desperately needs.

When eighty year old Harriet loses her husband, the thought of carrying on without him seems unbearable. When she is discharged from hospital back to the lonely care home, her life feels rather dire. As she struggles to contemplate her lonely existence, a face within a crowd causes her to stop and think, and consider if there really is something – or someone – worth living for after all.

And then there is Scott, a man who has found himself in a rather loveless marriage with Kelly. Neither of them are happy, yet they refuse to acknowledge this fact, staying together for the sake of their family. But with their daughter about to leave home, Scott decides that now is the time to end their marriage and follow his dreams. However, Kelly has some news that is about to change both of their lives once more.

Shari Low always manages to produce a story that has you well and truly immersed in the characters and their lives to the very end. The story is so wonderfully written, and intertwines the lives of Maisie, Harriet and Scott in the most beautiful ways. I loved how we got to experience the story from each characters perspective, allowing us to get to to know then as individuals on a much deeper level. Each of the characters had their own complex personalities, all of which impacted the story in some way. The storyline flows effortlessly from beginning to end, and takes you on an emotional rollercoaster alongside the characters. Another fantastic book by the fantastic Shari Low.
