The Day of Second Chances

4 stars

Honor’s secret threatens to rob her of the independence she’s guarded ferociously for eighty years.
Jo’s secret could smash apart the ‘normal’ family life she’s fought so hard to build.
Lydia’s secret could bring her love - or the loss of everything that matters to her.
One summer’s day, grandmother, mother and daughter’s secrets will collide in a single dramatic moment.

I was not really sure what to expect from this book but the dramatic collision combined with secrets caught my attention on this blurb and I am glad it did.
This is a book about three woman struggling with everyday problems. Honor with her health due to getting older. She is a fierce and proud woman and does not want to give in. Lydia with being 16 and things that happen when you are that age. And Jo a 40 year old mum of three with a messed up love life.
These three woman shared Stephen.. a son... husband and father who died to young. This story is 10 years after that happened but the influence on the relationship of these three woman is unmistakable. It us hard to say much about the story development without spoiling important moments but it is filled with vulnerability, hope, love, loss and so many other emotions I just had to continue reading. I needed to know how these three woman would come out of this and what the dramatic collision would be. The characters have their own voice in their own chapters and their interaction is written out so well. There were many situations between them happening where I hoped it waa still discussed by the other characters point of view in het chapter.
