Publisher's Summary

Behind every ordinary day, behind every ordinary story, there’s an extraordinary one just waiting to happen....

The uplifting, original new novel from the award-winning author of The Colour of Bee Larkham’s Murder.

Two people

Simon Sparks is the man you know from behind the counter at the local Prince Burger (‘hold the gherkin!’), fry shovelling, shelf stacking, hiding away from the world. And Jodie Brook is the single mum you see crossing the street with her son, Zak - always chasing a dream she can’t reach.

One life

What if life could be so much more? When Simon and Jodie’s worlds collide, it upends everything they know. But in chaos comes opportunity. And for every person who’s ever doubted them, they find someone who’ll finally believe....

One ordinary day at a time

From award-winning author Sarah J. Harris comes a warm, uplifting story about ordinary people, extraordinary tomorrows and all the ways that life can surprise us....

Critic Reviews

"The best book I've read in ages. If you like Jessica Ryn or Gail Honeyman, you'll ADORE this. I cried twice, but walked away with my heart so very full. There is nothing predictable about this story: just like its fantastic characters and brilliant back drop. Can't recommend enough." (Anstey Harris, author of The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton)

"Gorgeously written, wonderfully wise and utterly moving." (Miranda Dickinson)

"Another quirky, clever and original novel." (Cari Rosen)

Great Story Telling

You think you know what's going to happen next .. but you don't. Very enjoyable.
