9780007313440: The Whole Day Through

The new novel from Patrick Gale, author of Richard & Judy-bestseller Notes from an Exhibition.

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.

Review:

‘This is a wry, clever, fautlessly crafted mini-soap threaded with sadness…beautifully written, precisely nuanced and assured’ Guardian

‘A bittersweet tale of what happens when you’re torn between duty and desire’ She

‘During the course of a summer’s day, memories are revisited, hearts, souls and consciences searched, and second chances fleetingly emerge…[Gale’s] fluid telescoping of past and present adds to the mood of quiet poignancy’ Sunday Times

‘Poignant and acutely observed’ Daily Express
