Description

I really liked the flashbacks to Leno on the memorial page, the stories showed how Leni touched so many lives, selflessly at times. He is devastated by the loss of Leni but without this occurring I don’t think he would have undergone the transformative journey which I enjoyed following.

Alice, her sister is angry, she’s lost a friend, and more so they were at odds with each other in the run up to Leni’s death. She is also finding out lots more about her sister things she kept hidden from people and what happened to her in the last week of her life.On the other hand, the main crux of the story lies on her sister, Alice, trying to uncover the last weeks of Leni’s life, and by keeping us in the dark too, it puts us on the same journey, so I can understand why it’s written like that, but it doesn’t stop me wanting more. Set over the course of one life-changing year, The Best Days of Our Lives is a warm, big-hearted and poignant story, full of hope, heartache and love - the perfect gift this Christmas. Shortly after her 35th birthday, Lina is out riding at night when she's knocked off her bike and instantly killed by a passing car. This brought tears to my eyes a few times (I've also lost a sibling) and made me resolve to spend more time with my own family. UK popular contemporary fiction author Lucy Diamond pens a family drama saga that fans will appreciate.

This is extremely difficult as Leni was taken from them so prematurely when she had an accident whilst on her bike. This is a story about a fractured family, torn apart by deceit and who, through unimaginable tragedy, learn to appreciate each other as individuals and the roles that they play in each other's lives. Through the novel we follow the four people closest to Leni, her mum Belinda, father Tony and sister and brother Alice and Will. Will, the youngest McKenzie, he’s in denial, having hopped onto a plane to Thailand days after the funeral.The patchwork family was interesting and I enjoyed following on their journey to accepting not only the fact that one of them is dead, but accepting themselves, just like they are. As the sisters grew they inevitably parted ways to follow different paths but always knew that they had each other's backs. Lucy Diamond's books are always a great read in the family-drama type genre, and this was no exception. Despite this, it is an uplifting read and there are many important life lessons to be learnt from it.
