About this book:

THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH is the beautiful structured story of the choices we make when we come face to face with our past.

Laura Lewis has left her life in Paris and returned home to Winchester to care for her aging, but still sharp mother. Ben has moved away from his beautiful and loyal wife to support his brother, living alone since their mother’s death.

A chance encounter reminds them both of the relationship – and the spark – they once shared. In the course of a single summer’s day, they come face to face with the feelings of love and regret they share, and the choices they must make; whether to be true to themselves, or to what they believe is the right thing to do.
