The book's main character Diana was a girl whose life always went according to plan and Richard showed us through his writing what life was like back in the 1930's for young single women who were permitted to go to college but they must remember that exams and qualifications were for men only. Though we meet Diana in 1951 in France, you will not know what brings her there until you continue through the book.
Part one of the book brings Diana back into the early 30's when the world was coming to terms with Hitler and the Second World War and she is remembering how she came to fall in love with James the man who will soon be her husband.
Richard Madeley has written an old fashioned love story which will take the reader to the time of war and when people were living life day to day. Then unto Nice where the story really takes over and Diana sees the real James and how evil he really can be.
This book really has it all from old fashioned romance, murder, evil and even the Mafia this book has it all. Though at times I wanted to rush through it as there was a bit of repetitive information I do still consider this as a good read which I know a lot more readers will enjoy.
Some Day I'll Find You by Richard Madeley is a book which I would recommend to all readers who like historical fiction with a lot of old fashioned romance.
I bought this book on my kindle late at night and didn't bother to look at the reviews and stars...boy did I wish I had. I finished it purely as I had nothing else to read! So dull, a strange ending which came at a point I thought maybe the story was going to have some sort of interest/twist, really poorly written and as someone else said, not proof read properly. The lesson here is not to buy a book because it is written by someone famous even if you like them. So dissapointing.
Diana Arnold is introduced to the gorgeous man of her dreams, James Blackwell, fighter pilot, by her brother John. The two quickly fall in love and not long after they are married.
On the day of their marriage James is called back to the RAF as he is needed. During a air battle, James's plane is shot down over France and he is presumed dead, leaving Diana widowed and pregnant on their wedding day.
10 years later, Diana now remarried is living in Nice, France with her daughter Stella. One sunny afternoon she is sat outside a cafe when a taxi goes by. In the taxi she hears a man talking and the voice brings back so many memories and she is sure that the voice belongs to James.
Diana chases after the taxi but loses it in a sea of traffic, determined to find the man she will stop at nothing to see if it was James, even when no-one else believes her it is him.
She needs to be careful though as the man in the taxi is a dangerous psychopath who is only interested in money and will use any means necessary to get it.
The story starts of quiet slow, we are introduced to the Arnold family and James and this section is about getting to know them.. If I wasn't intrigued by the story I might of given up a few chapters in though as I was getting slightly bored at this point.
However I hung on and I am glad that I did as in second half the story picks up the pace. We feel Diana's pain as she needs to find out who the man is and her hurt when no-one will believe her.Read more ›
