Summary
  • "For fans of Jojo Moyes's Me Before You comes a beautifully written, heartwarming novel about mothers and daughters, husbands and wives. The Day We Met asks: Can you love someone you don't remember falling in love with? A gorgeous husband, two beautiful children, a job she loves--Claire's got it all. And then some. But lately, her mother hovers more than a helicopter, her husband Greg seems like a stranger, and her kids are like characters in a movie. Three-year-old Esther's growing up in the blink of an eye, and twenty-year-old Caitlin, with her jet-black hair and clothes to match, looks like she's about to join a punk band--and appears to be hiding something. Most concerning however is the fact that Claire is losing her memory, including that of the day she met Greg. When Claire meets a handsome stranger on a rainy day, she starts to wonder if Greg still belongs in her life. She knows she should love him, but she can't always remember why. When Greg gives her a blank book, Claire starts to fill its pages with unshared memories and keepsakes, jotting down beginnings and endings and everything in between. The book becomes the story of Claire--her passions, her sorrows, her joys, her adventures in a life that refuses to surrender to a fate worse than death: disappearing. Advance praise for The Day We Met "As with Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes, I couldn't put this book down."--Katie Fford Look for special features inside.

  • "When Claire starts to write her Memory Book, she already knows that this scrapbook of mementoes will soon be all her daughters and husband have of her. In her mid-40s, Claire is scared and increasingly confused by the world around her, struggling to hold onto her identity as thoughts of her mother, her daughters, and her husband grow fuzzier every day. Fearing what will happen if those memories fade altogether, her family's gift of a red sketchpad is her most treasured possession. As they fill it with scenes from a joyous life lived together, Claire again experiences the ecstatic highs and terrible lows of a life well lived: full of heartbreak and love, tears and laughter"--
