"Just One More Day will surprise all Susan Lewis fans. They know she can write compelling fiction, but not, until now, that she can write even more engrossing fact. We use the phrase honest truth too lightly: it should be reserved for books - deeply moving books - like this" (Alan Coren)

The final moments left me feeling raw and open the whole family experience. You were made to feel like of the family, and were left to grieve with them. I cried my heart out, even thought I knew what was happening. It left me wanting the read more.
Beautifully written, beautifully told and heart destroying. I wanted to cuddle the child we are left with. Please write a sequel.
The style Susan has written it is truly unique. How difficult it must be to capture the writing as if a child had written it. Very well done.
It took me a while to read this book because I didn't have the time to sit down properly and get into it which is what I think you should do with this book.
It's very touching especially at the end when Susan doesn't understand that her mum is gone and not coming back. But how like a nine year old that is like.
A definite recommendation if you want to read something real
`Just One More Day' is the moving memoir of Susan Lewis growing up in 1960's Bristol in a household that was facing tragedy, whilst pretending it was not happening. As Susan was only seven years old at the time I did have my doubts that she remembered so much so clearly, maybe her mother left a diary. I have not been able to find out if this was in fact the case. Susan spends her young childhood being brave about a situation she does not fully understand, while her toddler brother is oblivious to the pain within the family. Eddress and Eddie married when she was only twenty one and it as still a young woman she is faces cancer, without admitting her fears. It was just not done to show your feelings back in the sixties, so Eddress tries to deny to herself what is happening to her.
Susan struggled in this world of adult secrets but explains it well in this heart breaking true story of a young woman who dies at the tender age of thirty three leaving her husband a widower at thirty seven with children of nine and five. A scenario that really tugged at my heart strings and was a very emotional read.
It tells of the relationship between Susan and her mother and I was glued to it. It has made quite an impact on me as I have had a similar relationship with my own mother and was born around the same time.
I cannot wait for your follow up. A big thank you Susan.
Left me wanting to know more!!!
