Publisher's Summary

Tess and Gus are meant to be. They just haven't met properly yet. And perhaps they never will....

'Today is the first day of the rest of your life' is the motto on a plate in the kitchen at home, and Tess can't get it out of her head, even though she's in Florence for a final idyllic holiday before university. Her life is about to change forever - but not in the way she expects.

Gus and his parents are also on holiday in Florence. Their lives have already changed suddenly and dramatically. Gus tries to be a dutiful son but longs to escape and discover what sort of person he is going to be.

For one day the paths of an 18-year-old girl and boy crisscross before each returns to England. Over the course of the next 16 years, life and love will offer them very different challenges. Separated by distance and fate, there's no way the two of them are ever going to meet each other properly...or is there?

Wonderful story

This story warmed, broke and warmed my heart again. It's a story about love, loss, grief and two people destined for one another whose separate lives - with brief chance near-encounters - mould them into the man and woman they eventually find and realise they are fated to be with. Wonderfully performed by Anna Acton & Finlay Robertson.

Good and not great

This was a good book all the way through until the end . The romance at the end was disjointed from the rest of the story

Good, but a bit weak

Enjoyed the book but the ending was a bit weak, and came to conclusion far too suddenly for me enjoyed it however and the narrators very good.

Lovely book

Such a nice story and I will in fact listen to anything narrated by Anna Acton because her diction, inflexions and accents are spot on and her choice of books is excellent

Very believable story and not all luvvy duvvy although lovely

I really did enjoy this book. Believable characters with believable stories. Maybe I loved it even more as it starts in Italy and the main male character loves Italian cooking, plus there are a few Italian words thrown around. It is just a really nice easy book to listen to even though I am sure it will hit a few chords with some people for some of the storylines. Very believable and thoroughly enjoyable. Looking out for the next one now!

Love story

A beautifully written love story which was tender and touching and also funny at times....would make a great film and will appeal to any die hard romantics and lovers of one day /the versions of us/sliding doors. Maybe ending a bit predictable but definitely a great listen

Loved this!

A really multi-layered book which weaves through 20yrs of two people who are destined to be togethers, lives. We see how they navigate through their own stories, to reach the point they finally are ready to embrace one another and have a future as a couple. It plays with Destiny, serendipity, hope, 'the one' and unmet dreams, regrets and personal evolution.

exceptional

An exceptional read in every way. Believeable, likeable characters with exceptional descriptions. wonderful humour, intelligent observations. Best novel I have read in a very long time and I read at least 2 a week. I look forward to the next from an author who has obviously lived an interesting life.

Captivating

This book had me captivated. I feel like I got to know the two main characters Tess and Gus very well. Both their stories were intriguing and showed how life events change who we are and the paths we take. Both narrators acted the parts well, which added to the story. When the ending came it was bittersweet.

Excellent

I enjoy this book ever much. It makes me think of my wife and I meet one night and didn't see each other for 11 years till we met again. It was like we had never parted that night. Just like in this book.

I loved this book

Honestly enjoyed this audiobook so much. Really interesting, interwoven story - you can kinda tell how it's going to end up but there are lots of twists throughout the story and it's really well written to keep the reader (listener) engaged. Both narrators are also very suited to their characters, although I particularly enjoyed Finlay Robertson's reading. Would thoroughly recommend!
