On a Beautiful Day
In Lucy Diamond's On a Beautiful Day, four thirty-something friends are catching up, eating al fresco at a bistro in Manchester. Laura is desperate to get pregnant and is glumly starting to think it’s never going to happen. Recent divorcee Juliet is swept up in a whirlwind romance although finding it hard to win over her new partner’s precocious teenage daughter. Eve – uptight and a control freak – has found a lump in her breast and is in complete denial that anything might be wrong. India is the most happy-go-lucky of the four but when you’re trying to juggle a career, marriage, kids, ailing parents, neurotic dog and falling-down house, there’s always a catastrophe waiting in the wings.
An accident they witness on the street changes them forever and makes them contemplate just how lucky (or not) they are . . .
Lucy Diamond lives in Bath with her husband and their three children. She has written many bestselling novels, including The Secrets of Happiness, Summer at Shell Cottage and The Year of Taking Chances.
