The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver is the long awaited new novel from the author of the 2018 bestseller, One Day in December.
Freddie Hunter and Lydia Bird have been together, and madly in love, for almost ten years. There is, however, a third person in their relationship, Freddie’s long-time best mate, Jonah Jones!
Despite this minor irritation, Lydia thinks their love will last forever. Unfortunately, she realises she’s mistaken when Freddie is tragically killed in a car crash on her twenty seventh birthday. Jonah, who is a passenger in the car, survives.
In deep mourning for her soul-mate, Lydia spends her days indoors, weeping and dressed in her pyjamas, much to the concern of her mother and sister, Elle. As the days and weeks pass, however, she begins to realise that Freddie would want her to live life to the full. With the help of Elle and Jonah she steps outside once more to embrace life and maybe to find love again.
But when the incredible happens and Lydia finds she has the opportunity to resume life with Freddie, will she go? Or will she stay with the someone who has become dear to her in her new life?
This is an exciting take on the everyday romance novel and far more interesting. This heartwarming novel will bring tears and laughter and thoughts of ‘what if?’ in one’s own life. It is a book to be read in one sitting, curled up on the sofa in pyjamas! A must read for everyone with a soft heart and a belief in the impossible.
The Two Lives of Lydia Bird is available in paperback and e-book
