Synopsis

Their love story started with goodbye…
The brand-new novel from The Sunday Times bestselling author, Miranda Dickinson.

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…

My Thoughts

‘Take chances, make mistakes. That’s how you grow.’ Mary Tyler Moore

The Day We Meet Again is a story of taking chances 😊

Phoebe Jones is setting off on an adventure 💼 Sam Mullins is going back to his roots, to figure out a family mystery 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 They are both at St Pancras station when they meet…and fall in love at first sight 💓

But, this is the day they have both decided to leave, in completely the opposite directions 🚃

‘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 . . .’

What then results is a story told from both Phoebe and Sam’s point of view of their year apart 😊 will they still love each other by the end? And will they meet? 🤞🏻

This was an engaging story of “will-they-wont-they’ meet again. I enjoyed the different stories of their adventures. Sam’s search for his father and revisiting his hometown was beautiful. I particularly liked the touching scene when Sam played his fiddle.

Dickinson set the scenes well, and gave us a great image of where the characters were.

‘Everything sparkles in the sunshine and the streets are alive with colour, from brightly painted awnings to elegant window boxes on the terraces above shops and cafés.’

I have to admit, there were times that I wanted to reach out and shake both of these characters (Phoebe in particular) and make them see sense. For two 32 year old adults, there were times that they acted very childish.

Overall this story was a charming and pleasant read. ‘A story of what-ifs and maybes – and how one decision can change your life forever…’
