This is the latest novel from the New York Times best-selling author of PS I Love You, which most fans may be more familiar with as the tear-jerking movie starring Hilary Swank.
In this story we meet Tamara Goodwin, a girl who is spoiled rotten and used to living in the lap of luxury. She has never had to consider her future, until she and her mother are left to face a mountain of debt after her father dies unexpectedly. They have no choice but to move in with Tamara’s strange aunt and uncle in a small countryside village.
Tamara quickly becomes bored and lonely; her only friend is found in the form of a traveling library. One day, she finds a large, locked leather-bound book without an author name or title. Tamara can’t help herself – she tries to pry open the lock, and what she finds inside shocks her.
Within the mysterious book, Tamara sees diary entries that are written in her own handwriting – dated for the next day. Each day soon begins to unfold exactly as it was written by Tamara in the diary. She soon realizes that this may be the answer to all of her problems.
Of course, the moral of the story is that you can’t always interfere with fate. For the most part, the book is entertaining, although some portions are fluffy and unnecessary. Still, the plot will keep you turning the pages since it stays interesting with twist after twist.
