Christmas Feature: One Day in December by Josie Silver

Looking for a non-Christmassy story that is infused with the spirit of Christmas to read this Christmas? My little Elf has just the pick for you. It’s lucky I read an advanced copy, because he’s not letting this one go! And by the way, that first sentence is all Elf, he’s yet to master the art of non-repetition and he seems to want to make everything about Christmas.

‘One Day in December is a novel that wraps you up in a comforting embrace. And that ending…incredibly wonderful. A truly perfect way to finish such a gorgeous novel.’ – Me, not Elf.

One Day in December…

Two people. Ten chances. One perfect love story.

Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn’t exist. After all, life isn’t a scene from the movies, is it?

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.

Laurie thinks she’ll never see the boy from the bus again. But at their Christmas party a year later, her best friend Sarah introduces her to the new love of her life. Who is, of course, the boy from the bus.

Determined to let him go, Laurie gets on with her life. But what if fate has other plans?

Following Laurie, Sarah and Jack through ten years of love, heartbreak and friendship, One Day in December is a joyous, heart-warming and immensely moving love story that you’ll want to escape into forever.

One Day in December by Josie Silver has been chosen as Reese Witherspoon’s December book club pick.

  1. What a great sounding book, one I think I must add to my TBR list. I so want that elf, he’s gorgeous! Where did you find him, Theresa? He is real, right? 🙂

  2. Ohhh what a sweet story! This was Reese Witherspoon’s pick for the month, wasn’t it? (If I recall correctly from Instagram…) I had a moment like this once with a gentleman in France, locked eyes with him in a crowd and was convinced he was The One… never saw him again, though, so unfortunately no happy ending. Might have to work out some vicarious thrills through Silver’s story instead 😉 hahaha.
