The Day that Changed Everything by Catherine Miller


When you lose the love of your life, how do you find yourself again?

For Tabitha, the day that changed everything started like any other.

She woke up, slid her feet into fluffy slippers, wrapped herself in a dressing gown and tiptoed out of her bedroom, leaving her husband Andy sleeping. Downstairs, she boiled the kettle and enjoyed a cup of tea as the sun rose.

Upstairs, Andy’s alarm sounded, and Tabitha took him a freshly brewed coffee, like every other morning. Except today, the incessant beeping rang out and her husband hadn’t stirred. She called his name, she nudged his shoulder. But Andy wouldn’t wake up.

Three years later Tabitha is trying her hardest to get by in the shadow of her grief. She may have lost the love of her life but she won’t give up on the family they dreamed of. Fostering troublesome teenage girls and a newborn baby is a chance to piece together her broken heart.

But being a mother isn’t easy, and neither is healing the heartache she carries around. After losing everything, could saving these three children help Tabitha save herself too?

This stunning tale will make you laugh and cry in equal measure, hold your loved ones close and see the beauty in the little things in life. Fans of Jojo Moyes, Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain will love this moving and uplifting story.

My Rating - 4 Stars!

The Day that Changed Everything is an interesting novel by Catherine Miller. 

This is the story of Tabitha and the aftermath of her husband's death. It's a story of pain, hurt, and regret. It involves foster care and an accepting family. 

There are complications with foster kids, as they are full of anger and pain. This part is emotionally devastating.

The writing's good, the story is good. Things are revealed while alternating between the present and the past, slowly bringing the reader more and more into the story. 

The Day that Changed Everything is a story of healing, a story of moving forward. It's an impressive novel that will keep you riveted throughout.
