  • All the Stars!

    4.5 Stars Catherine Miller has given us such a gift in this story. I sat down and just devoured this novel. It was unflinching in its examination of the complexity of the human heart, what it means to love, what it takes to make a family. A highly readable, hopeful, and heartfelt story of the making of a new family. Parenthood requires a steep learning curve, even in the best of circumstances. The author does a great job of acknowledging a mother's mistakes as well as her wins. Catherine Miller writes such tight and magical prose that the sentences alone make you want to turn the page. Still, beautiful clauses and discrete insights are never enough to stay glued to a full length book. Ms. Miller also offers us a deeply flawed protagonist with a biting sense of humor and ruthless insight into her own weaknesses. This is a surprising jewel of a book. You won't regret this read.

  • An exploration of the human heart.

    Every time I hear the expression love of your life, I am reminded of Grey's Anatomy and how Derrick was that to Meredith. Well, in this story by Catherine Miller, Tabitha is trying to get past the loss of the one special and perfect man in her life, her husband Andy. Shockingly, Tabitha discovers that Andy had died in his sleep. This one scene alone was heartbreaking. As the story continues, a few years have passed and Tabitha has started an entirely new life. She has decided to become a foster parent. Her first foster children are fifteen-year-old twin girls. Although they give her a run for her money, she holds on tight to be as good as this as possible. When she is asked to foster a newborn, Tabitha realizes that things are going to be even harder, but she is up to the task. I was floored by this novel by Catherine Miller. After all, when a woman whose heart was completely broken opened her home to take in children, well, that was enough for me to be fully committed and truly affected as I was reading The Day That Changed Everything. This book felt to me as an exploration of the human heart and its capacity for love. Not only that, but it also proved to be one of second chances and starting over. I have perused Catherine Miller's backlist, as this is my first book by her, which I devoured in one sitting, and it will most certainly not be my last. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.

  • Inspiring

    Having not read anything by Catherine Miller before I was unaware of what I was in store. Well, I was blown away! This book had my full attention from the very start. It was very well written, full of raw emotion and I felt as if I was actually sitting there with Tabitha listening as she told me her story. Despite the book beginning with the death of Tabitha's husband I found it to be overall an uplifting and hopeful tale of rebuilding for the future following the shattering of dreams held close. The story moves between then - the death of Tabitha's husband - and now - with Tabitha starting her fostering journey. The author has dealt with the subject of fostering in a beautiful manner and shows that despite it being hard work there is also a rewarding feeling. I loved this aspect of the book having previously worked in a care home setting I could understand some of what kids go through whilst in care. This is very much a heart-wrenching story about overcoming grief and moving forwards. I found this to be an inspiring read filled with heartwarming characters. Once I started reading I was spell-bound to read until the final page - just as if I was sitting having tea with Tabitha. Lovely!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Completely thrilled me

    First time reader of this author, I’m going to search for more of Catherine’s books. Loved this story, so human. We all have so many stories to keep or share in our lives and these characters became very much real to me. Would love if there was a sequel to this book, I didn’t want it to finish.

    Thanks for your feedback!
