Description

Belinda finds comfort in her many conversations with a telephone clairvoyant who is able to speak to her daughter and pass messages back from beyond the grave.

It reminds us to make the most of every second and spend time with our loved ones even doing the most mundane things. It’s unsurprising that the parent’s and children’s stories link as they’ve all lost the same person, but there are some secondary characters that pop up here and there that help tie it all together. Hours spent talking to Leni through a psychic hotline may be bringing Belinda comfort but deep down surely she must know that this is not real at all?UK popular contemporary fiction author Lucy Diamond pens a family drama saga that fans will appreciate.

In the following year, we follow the McKenzies as they turn to different ways of coping (or not coping in this case).We are introduced to many different characters who, despite mistakes they may have made, I grew to love by the end. I’ve used a pen name because ‘Diamond’ is a lot easier to spell and pronounce than ‘Mongredien’ and also because I’ve written lots of children’s books too and wanted to keep the genres separate. I love books by Lucy Diamond and this one was just as good as the others I’ve read, with lots of characters to keep you interested. I expected a sad story but instead Diamond wrote a story which was honest, witty (I particularly enjoyed the stories from a Leni growing up). You are desperate to get to know her and to read things from her perspective but you know this can’t occur but the further the story develops you do get a sense of who she was and how integral she was to the family and how loved she was.

Providing readers with a glimpse into the world of bereavement, close family relationships and the impact when life deals this card. Her marriage is over as her husband can’t cope with what she has turned into and all the solid structures once in place in her life are gone. I absolutely loved the author's writing - her words are fluid and poetic, which makes the story engaging and deeply passionate. While I did cry my eyes out reading this story, I would definitely describe The Best Days of Our Lives as a fun and happy book. What follows are chapters from each family’s members viewpoint, her sister Alice, her brother Will, her mother Belinda and her father Tony.Diamond’s analogies of the butterfly having to fight it’s way out if it’s chrysalis and the way a river will learn to flow around a pebble we’re absolutely beautiful ways to explore how we might move forward after tragedy. The characters in the book were beautifully written, I loved getting to know their stories and how they all pulled together was heart warming. This is a story about sister Alice finding out about Leni’s last few weeks of her life and she discovers that Alice didn’t know everything about her sister than she thought she did. She has constant reminders of what she had but once lost as she sees her family members doing well in life or she thinks.
