This is the Day, Paperback Book

This is the Day Paperback


They've got it all. And now they're about to lose it...Tom and Ella Barclay think they have life all worked out: they have a smart house in suburbia, two lovely children at private school, creative and interesting jobs. And best of all, a happy marriage...But beneath the surface, things are not so serene.

Tired of his sedate, respectable progress through life thus far, Tom decides to embark on a tantalising adventure - to have an affair.

The only snag is this proves to be rather more difficult than he'd been led to believe.

Meanwhile, Ella despises the hordes that stream through the grounds of the stunning fifteenth-century castle where she works, and berates herself for not spending enough time with the children.

She dreams of one day becoming a stay-at-home mum. But then fate turns the Barclays' lives inside-out in a way they could never have imagined.

Forced to look the world from a very different perspective, Tom and Ella begin to fall through the cracks of their self-made facades.

Join Tom and Ella on the hilarious, bittersweet rollercoaster of Daniel Blythe's inimitable and mischievous social satire as, together, they hurtle headlong towards meltdown.
