9780099509691: Five Days

Is it ever too late to find the life you always wanted? A modern day Brief Encounter or The Bridges of Madison County, this is a novel which poses the ultimate romantic dilemma, from the bestselling author of The Pursuit of Happiness, A Special Relationship, and The Moment.

Is it ever too late to have the life you wanted? Or do we owe it to ourselves to pursue the promise of happiness?

For twenty years, Laura has been a good wife and mother. She's supported her husband through redundancy, she's worried about her son, she's encouraged her daughter. She has been constant, caring and selfless.

She's stopped thinking about her own dreams, the places she'd like to go and the books she'd like to talk about.

But a chance meeting with a man in a hotel lobby - and the five days that follow - remind Laura of the young woman she used to be, and the woman she could have become.

How long does it take to fall in love and leave your life behind?

Review:

"This modern Brief Encounter asks what it is that stops most of us from instigating change. Throughout we are kept in exquisite suspense, waiting to see whether the beleaguered pair will seize their chance of happiness." ( Independent)

"Totally, blissfully absorbing" ( The Times)

"Kennedy can effortlessly inhabit the voice of the female narrator, and Laura’s dilemma will leave you absolutely gripped to the final page. " ( Sunday Mirror)

"A gripping emotional rollercoaster; pressing so many buttons it’s likely to have readers examining their own what-might-have-beens." ( Daily Mail)

"Possesses a Hitchcockian approach to this narrative hub; tension and twists are administered in equal measure in order to retain readers’ emotional attachment to otherwise domestic scenarios. The ordinary becomes, through his carefully plotting, extraordinary. Kennedy’s trick is to pull all the strings of thriller writing in the romance genre… a novel that’s both moving and realistic as it broaches that awful chasm between what we could be and what we presently are." ( Independent on Sunday)
