Always, In December by Emily Stone


It isn’t often that a read a 400-page book in three days, but I did with this one. It begins magically and takes you on a journey, one which you will remember for a long time.

The main character is Josie Morgan, who has just finished a relationship with Oliver and is at an impasse in her life with her relationship and her job. We soon learn she lost her parents in a car accident one Christmas Eve when she was a child, so that time of year is a difficult one for her.

But this Christmas, she has an accident and meets a stranger called Max. They spend a few days together in December and … well, I’ll let you read the book to find out.

Emily Stone creates beautiful characters, each one steps out of the page and is instantly someone you know, so you care about them. Even the minor characters like Graeme – exactly the sort of man you don’t want to be stuck at a wedding with – jump out of the page with their realism.

The story takes you on a tour of your emotions and it isn’t always a happy book, I’ll warn you, but it’s a story that’s well worth reading.
