DPL Book Club: One Day in December

12/20/2023 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

The DPL Book Club will meet on Wednesday, December 20 at 6:30 PM. December’s selection is One Day in December by Josie Silver, a feel-good winter romantic comedy.

Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn’t exist anywhere but the movies. But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there’s a moment of pure magic . . . and then her bus drives away.

Certain they‚Äôre¬†fated to find each other again,¬†Laurie¬†spends a year scanning every bus stop and cafe in London¬†for him. But she doesn‚Äôt find him,¬†not when it matters anyway. Instead¬†they ‚Äúreunite‚ÄĚ at a¬†Christmas¬†party, when¬†her best friend, Sarah, giddily introduces her new boyfriend to Laurie. It‚Äôs¬†Jack,¬†the man from the bus. It would be.

What follows for Laurie, Sarah, and Jack is ten years of friendship, heartbreak, missed opportunities, roads not taken, and destinies reconsidered. One Day in December is a joyous, heartwarming, and immensely moving love story to escape into and a reminder that fate takes inexplicable turns along the route to happiness.
