‘One Day in December is the SWEETEST love story. It’s gorgeous, absolutely lovely. Readers are going to love it!’  Marian Keyes

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.

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 to escape into forever.

I chose a ball of yarn from my mother’s wool collection and she found me her old darning mushroom, which had once belonged to my granny, and explained the basics. I remember the feeling of it: threading the needle with a strand of contrasting grey wool, while pulling the heel over the domed wooden mushroom; weaving my needle in and out of the surviving strands; making little bridges back and forth like a lawn mower; slowly closing the hole. The process was instinctive. I can still recall the feeling of pride and achievement when I had finally finished. Sure my darn looked a little rustic, but I had given my socks
