Synopsis from Goodreads
‘We’ll meet again at St Pancras station, a year from today. If we’re meant to be together, we’ll both be there. If we’re not, it was never meant to be . . .’
Phoebe and Sam meet by chance at St Pancras station. Heading in opposite directions, both seeking their own adventures, meeting the love of their lives wasn’t part of the plan. So they make a promise: to meet again in the same place in twelve months’ time if they still want to be together.
But is life ever as simple as that?
This is a story of what-ifs and maybes – and how one decision can change your life forever…
From the moment I read those first pages I knew that I was in for a beautiful heartbreaking journey.
After meeting Miranda during the HQ Summer Showcase, I knew I had to read The Day We Meet Again. The way she described her book to me, hitting all the things I love and hope for in a romance, there was no way I would let this one escape my bookshelves.
It only took me a few pages to get me totally engrossed in the book, I just couldn’t put it down. I absolutely adored every moment of this journey full of love, missed chances, mistakes, serendipity and self discovery, which Dickinson took me.
Getting to know Phoebe and Sam as they got to know each other, and more importantly as they got to discover themselves through their journeys, was for sure an experience. I do love a romance that makes you stop and re-think your life.
Are you really doing what makes you happy? That’s the question that The Day We Meet Again has left me with…as is never too late to just truly do what feels right to you (even when no one else believes you can do it!).
However, the biggest feeling I was left with was of wanderlust, sometimes I do wonder if I could do what Phoebe did and just leave everything behind and travel for 1 year. Even more so when you just met the love of your life? To have to say goodbye before saying I love you, that’s not an easy thing to do. Could you do it?
Not only we fall in love with Phoebe and Sam, but also the people who surround them. They both have some of the best friends anyone could ask for and is just wonderful to see a range of different types of friendships being portrayed. Plus every single person they both meet along their journey, no matter how small of a character or not they are, every single one of them is so well written.
Then comes the setting! It’s set in England, Scotland, France and Italy. Every place described so well and so realistic that you truly believe that your there ‘Marking the moment’ with Phoebe.
I have to say that the Film & TV Graduate in me would love to see this one make into the big screen because I think it would be a beautiful love story set in the most stunning places, and who doesn’t love those films? I know I do.
The Day We Meet Again is perfect for fans of Eat Pray Love and Love, Rosie and is out now!
Thanks HQ for sending me a paperback copy of The Day We Meet Again in exchange for my honest review.
