From the New York Times bestselling author of If I Stay
Allyson Healey's life is exactly like her suitcase—packed, planned, ordered. Then on the last day of her three-week post-graduation European tour, she meets Willem. A free-spirited, roving actor, Willem is everything she’s not, and when he invites her to abandon her plans and come to Paris with him, Allyson says yes. This uncharacteristic decision leads to a day of risk and romance, liberation and intimacy: 24 hours that will transform Allyson’s life.
A book about love, heartbreak, travel, identity, and the “accidents” of fate, Just One Day shows us how sometimes in order to get found, you first have to get lost. . . and how often the people we are seeking are much closer than we know.
The first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. Willem’s story—Just One Year—is coming soon!
I loved Willem's view on life. I could give anything to live his life for a while. I would love to travel, see the world, meet interesting people and have some adventures along the way. I feel like I have a little gypsy in my soul that I never let out!
Allyson's college Shakespeare class sounded so amazing. I wish that I could have been involved with a class that. I always feel like I do not have the knowledge of Shakespeare that I would love to have. Reading them out-loud and acting them out in class would definitely give me the insight I desire.
The side characters in this book were great. I loved each and every one of them in the ways that you were supposed to. The roommates, the best friend and even the overbearing mother. They were very well written. I think that side characters can really give a book life and Gayle hit this one on the mark.
