I received a copy of Until One Day for free through a Goodreads Giveaway.

Until One Day hooked me because I really enjoy stories that follow unrelated people and their stories intersect at the end, so it really kept me reading to find out just how they intersected. Following the paths of 4 different individuals on Christmas Eve, each story has a struggle of some sort. But through each person's struggle, there is goodness that shines through, and it offers sort of a feel-good moment where you see

When I saw that it was a story that blended the lives of 4 different people I couldn't wait to see how this played out. I never thought that somehow they would touch eachother lives, in ways they never thought possible. I loved the way it all came together in the end. It was sad, touching, happy,and wanting to read more... It really made me (once again) want to know what true love feels like. I would definetly recommend this book to anyone.

From the very first sentence I was hooked on this book. A wonderful read, a very heart warming story!!! It is a story that is told through the eyes of four very different characters. They all face some of life's most daunting challenges and deal these challenges in ways that will take the reader on an intriguing journey. I laughed and cried as I read this book and you will too. It is just what the doctor ordered to give you hope in todays troubled world.

How much difference can a single day make in a life? Charlotte Symond's novel Until One Day illustrates the possibilities. Four lonely people, each hurting deeply, make choices that unknowingly and inexplicably impact the lives of strangers. Told in four voices, this delightful novel brings hope in the face of despair on a single, unforgettable Christmas Eve.

This was a nice, enjoyable read and a heart warming Christmas story. Sadly, it was very predictable and very poorly edited. The numerous spelling and grammar mistakes were distracting as were the many run on sentences. I know that could be overlooked by many but it served as a detractor to me.

The "author's importance information-please read", found in the front of this book made the hair on my arms stand up and shivers go down my spine. Do not skip this section, as Ms. Symonds wrote, sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction.

I loved Charlotte's first book and was THRILLED to see this second book!! This novel pulled me into the story instantly and I quickly found myself attached to each of the 4 main characters as their lives developed. I truly enjoyed the writing style as well. It is amazing how in just one day you travel through the four lives of strangers and watch how they come together in the last few pages.
