Two people. Ten chances. One unforgettable love story.
Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn’t exist anywhere but the movies. But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there’s a moment of pure magic…and then her bus drives away.
Certain they’re fated to find each other again, Laurie spends a year scanning every bus stop and cafe in London for him. But she doesn’t find him, not when it matters anyway. Instead they “reunite” at a Christmas party, when her best friend Sarah giddily introduces her new boyfriend to Laurie. It’s Jack, the man from the bus. It would be.
What follows for Laurie, Sarah and Jack is ten years of friendship, heartbreak, missed opportunities, roads not taken, and destinies reconsidered. One Day in December is a joyous, heartwarming and immensely moving love story to escape into and a reminder that fate takes inexplicable turns along the route to happiness.
Quotes from One Day in December
Sometimes you just meet the right person at the wrong time.
You tread lightly through life, but you leave deep footprints that are hard for other people to fill.
There comes a point where you have to make the choice to be happy, because being sad for too long is exhausting.
It’s strange, but you never stop caring about someone, even if you don’t want to be with them any more.
There’s something about living in a different place that allows you to be whoever you want to be.
