Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're joining Rachel's Random Resources for a stop along their current tour featuring the work of author Shari Low. You may recognize the name from your own reading, or the other two posts we've featured her titles in right here on the site, but any way you slice it, if you're a Contemporary Fiction or Women's Fiction fan, you NEED to know it. Ladies and gents, may I introduce you to today's blog tour guest and ebook of choice...
One Summer Sunrise
About the book...
As the sun rises on a hot summer’s day, four lives are about to be changed forever...
Brand new from the bestselling author of What If?, What Now? and One Day In Summer.
Today, Maisie McTeer decides to track down the ex who jilted her at the altar. Today, she’ll find out that revisiting the past can also rewrite her future.
After losing her husband, Harriet Bassett can no longer bear her lonely life. Today, a familiar face in a crowd will spark a quest to discover if there’s something and someone worth living for.
Scott and Kelly Bassett’s daughter is leaving home. Today, Scott plans to tell Kelly that he’s ending their marriage to pursue his rock and roll dreams.
However, Kelly, has a bombshell of her own. How will Scott react to the news that a new arrival is on the way to fill their empty nest?
Between sunrise and sunset, there’s love, heartbreak, laughter and tears, but who will find happiness at the end of the day?
So much can happen between the span of time from sunrise to sunset...
...and this story proves that beyond a shadow of a doubt!
Fiction it may be, but these characters will work their way right into your heart. Their stories will capture you, make you cringe, smile, laugh, cry, and gasp as you cross your fingers and hope against hope that the end of each life's tale isn't left simply as is. Maisie, Scott, Kelly, Carny, Rick, Carson, and SO MANY MORE are introduced in their own time, and have stories so worth following. They dance around each other, and intertwine along the way, but they all have such distinct voices, you won't be able to leave any of them behind. Though each touched me in some fashion, I think the one I was most attached to was Harriett. The life she's lived, the losses she's suffered, the decisions she's made, and yet even in her darkest hours, the strength she has, both of heart, and mind. I was literally reading with tears rolling down my face at one point, blatantly updating my Goodreads status with "...that better not be the end of Harriet's story.."...and yes, I meant it! I was totally invested and if things reached THAT point with THAT twist, I just didn't know what to do!
In short, it's a story about life, love, family, and those we choose to hold dear. It doesn't shy away from the messy times, nor does it gloss over the good, but it does remind us that every day is a gift; another twenty four hours with which to chase our dreams, follow our hearts, and positively impact this world...or at the very least, make our corner of it a little brighter.
