A Day That Changed Everything - Beth Moran || Netgalley Review


Amy Piper is in need of a bit of luck. She’s lost her confidence, her mojo and her way.

But one thing she has never lost is her total love for her thirteen-year-old son Joey, and for his sake she knows it’s time for a change. But first she has to be brave enough to leave the house…

What she needs are friends and an adventure. And when she joins a running group of women who call themselves The Larks, she finds both. Not to mention their inspiring (and rather handsome) coach, Nathan.

The trick to changing your life, is to take it one day at a time. Now, with every ounce of strength she has left, Amy is determined to make just one day special - for herself and for Joey. And who knows, today might be the day that changes everything…

My copy came from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I wanted to read something that was light, funny and a bit of a life changer for the main character which is why i picked this up.  Amy is a little lost, she once had it all or so it seemed but now, she keeps herself inside and focuses on the little things to make things great for her son Joey. 

Yet she knows she needs to change and get out the house if not for Joey alone, so setting herself up a training plan she sets about not been a loser anymore, determined to make her life better. What starts out as simple runs in the dark to avoid others soon ends up meeting a whole group of people "The Larks" a local running club who offer friendship and support and right now, that is what Amy needs but just joining is not that simple for her.

Yet she knows a day at a time she can do it, and work towards her goal, that one day where she can achieve what she sets out too. I enjoyed this read, it flew by as each time frame unfolded as she embarked on her challenge. It also showed that it isn't easy or a quick fix solution Amy was looking for but something life changing and long term.

I really felt for Amy and rooted for her all along, i flew through this read and felt as a reader i was on the journey with her working towards her end goal. She was such an indepth character that had such a complex history and i really enjoyed discovering that, at times it was hard to acknowledge but what you do find is she is an incredibly strong woman and a joy to get to know.

Beth Moran initially worked as a biochemist and then taught antenatal classes before becoming an author. She loves to write contemporary women`s fiction set in and around Sherwood Forest, where she lives with her family
