An inspiring and uplifting novel from the bestselling author of The Secrets of Happiness and The House of New Beginnings.In Lucy Diamond's new novel, On a Beautiful Day, four thirty-something friends are catching up, eating al fresco at a bistro in Manchester. Laura is desperate to get pregnant and is glumly starting to think it's never going to happen. Recent divorcee Juliet is swept up in a whirlwind romance although finding it hard to win over her new partner's precocious teenage daughter. Eve, an uptight and a control freak, has found a lump in her breast and is in complete denial that anything might be wrong. India is the most happy-go-lucky of the four, but when you're trying to juggle a career, marriage, kids, ailing parents, neurotic dog, and a falling-down house, there's always a catastrophe waiting in the wings.But when they witness an accident on the street that changes them forever, each woman begins to contemplate just how lucky (or not) they really are...
Lucy Diamond lives in Bath, England with her husband and their three children. She has penned numerous bestselling novels, including The House of New Beginnings, The Secrets of Happiness, Summer at Shell Cottage, and The Year of Taking Chances.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affecting, inspiring, and delightfully mesmerizing! On a Beautiful Day is a heartwarming tale that reminds us that life should be lived to the fullest every day and it’s not only the high but also the low moments in life that truly shape us. There are four main characters in this novel; Eve, an accountant and mother of two who struggles to ask for help; Jo, a divorcee and nurse who's hesitant to fall in love; Laura, a middle-aged woman who craves motherhood; and India, a mother of three who has a secret from the past that continually haunts. The prose is warm and emotional. The characters are multifaceted, empathetic, resilient, and endearing. And the plot is a sweeping saga about life, loss, family, secrets, adultery, infertility, determination, acceptance, self-discovery, happiness, romance, and love. Diamond has an uncanny ability to write beautiful, beguiling stories about female friendships that resonate and On a Beautiful Day is no exception. It's powerful, genuine, heartfelt, and moving and I enjoyed every minute of it.
