The Day My Husband Left

Amy Miller

Sucked me in completely. One heart-warming story that I could not put down… flawless and beautiful… It reduced me to tears.’ Book Nerd Cafe

I didn’t think there was life after you, but you left me a gift on the day you died that changed everything for me…

On the day Heidi’s husband, Johnny, died, he passed on a final token of his love – a photograph taken the day he died. As Heidi pores over the image, she sees a busy street scene and a pavement full of strangers – but she has no idea what this last message from her beloved husband could mean.

Heidi has spent her days – and her years – in her workshop, giving cherished old furniture a second chance. But there are some parts of Heidi’s own life that are beyond repair. Secrets that Heidi and Johnny kept throughout their long marriage. Things that they were never brave enough to speak about.

All Heidi knows now is that this picture of her husband’s final moments is where she has to start looking for clues. When she visits the busy street from the photograph, she suddenly comes face to face with the person Johnny had been meeting that day – someone she herself has spent a lifetime longing to know. But is she ready for what they’ll tell her?

The Day My Husband Left will make you cry, laugh, hope, and learn how to put the broken bits of your own life back together again. Perfect for readers who love Jojo Moyes, Susan Lewis and Ruth Hogan.
