One Summer Sunrise by Shari Low #Review


I am delighted to feature the latest novel by Shari Low, One Summer Sunrise which was published by Boldwood Books on June 3rd.

Scott and Kelly Bassett’s daughter is leaving home. Today, Scott plans to tell Kelly that he’s ending their marriage to pursue his rock and roll dreams.

Between sunrise and sunset, there’s love, heartbreak, laughter and tears, but who will find happiness at the end of the day?

My Thoughts

This novel takes place over one day and follows the lives of four different people who are all brought together at a fundraising concert for a theatre group. At the outset, some of them seem unconnected but as the story develops, you realise that there are certain links. I enjoyed looking at the different generations and seeing that each person was at an important point in their lives. Carly is about to leave home after graduation, which leaves her parents facing an empty nest. However, there is much more to the picture than that. The most affecting character is Harriet who feels at the beginning that she has nothing left to live for. Lastly, there is Maisie, who has unfinished business with her ex-fiance.

    Family is an important part of this book and as you see, can take different forms. There are some warm and witty characters and you can genuinely believe in the ties between them. There are moments of humour to set against some poignant ones. In all, this is a great summer's read, with lively characters and uplifting moments. 

In short: Lives collide
