After falling in love with One Day In December, I was thinking this next book couldn’t be as good, but I was thankfully wrong!!

Lydia and Freddie are engaged, their love should last a lifetime but how long is a lifetime? Sadly on Lydia’s birthday, Freddie and his best friend Jonah are involved in a car accident and Freddie dies.

Lydia is a great character, you can really feel her pain and despair at losing her true love. Lydia wants to hide away but with help from friend Jo

I loved it Josie Silver's THE TWO LIVES OF LYDIA BIRD so much. I was a huge ONE DAY IN DECEMBER fan and was a little nervous this one wouldn’t hold up. But it definitely does.

I fell in love with LYDIA BIRD for all the same reasons I did ONE DAY—the characters, the fluid storytelling, the emotional connection, and the happy ending. This is such a sweet love story that completely transported me into Lydia’s life. I felt emotionally invested in Lydia’s story, and I enjoyed every minute of he

Oh this book is just beautiful. Beware you need massive amounts of tissues to get through this book. But boy is it 100% worth it. I laughed, I cried and I was heartbroken and then fixed again. This book is beautiful.

Oh where to start, this book was utterly beautiful. I read One Day in December by Josie Silver and I loved it, so when I started this book I was worried it wouldn't match up but I had no need to worry. The characters are wonderful and also very real, the story line was great and I read it in two sittings as I just couldn't put it down. I will be recommending this book to everyone I know.

I loved this. I knew I would because I loved Josie Silver’s first book so much. I started reading this, and kept on reading for six hours until I’d finished it.

It’s lovely. It’s a bit predictable but brilliantly so, what you want to happen does happen. It is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. A wonderful cast of characters and beautifully written.

Read this book. You will love it too.

Such a lovely book ! Full of emotion - it is a story of grief and coming to terms with it.
Lydia and Freddie were to get married then Freddie unexpectedly dies and Lydia is heartbroken. However in her dreams Freddie is alive again - I really enjoyed the story and the characters were lovely.for me it was a heartbreaking and heartwarming read.
