A woman has a second chance at love in this novel from the author
of Richard & Judy bestsellers 'Notes from an Exhibition' and 'A
Perfectly Good Man'. When forty-something Laura Lewis is obliged to
abandon a life of stylish independence in Paris to care for her
elderly mother in Winchester, it seems all romantic opportunities
have gone up in smoke. Then she runs into Ben, the great love of
her student days - and, as she only now dares admit, the emotional
touchstone against which she has judged every man since. She's
cautious - and he's married - but they can't deny that feelings
still exist between them. Are they brave enough to take the second
chance at the lasting happiness that fate has offered them? Or will
they be defeated by the need to do what seems to be the right
thing? Taking its structure from the events of a single summer's
day, The Whole Day Through is a bittersweet love story, shot
through with an understanding of mortality, memory and the
difficulty of being good. In it, Patrick Gale writes with
scrupulous candour about the tests of love: the regrets and the
triumphs, and the melancholy of failing. The Whole Day Through is
vintage Gale, displaying the same combination of wit, tenderness
and acute psychological observation as his Richard & Judy
bestseller Notes From an Exhibition.
