Summary

Heartbreaking. Life-affirming. Truly unforgettable.  

Always, in December is the timeless, stay-up-all-night love story we all need right now.

If you loved One Day in December, Me Before You and the hit movie Last Christmas, this is the perfect book for you.

Every December, Josie posts a letter to the parents she lost one Christmas night, many years ago. She always writes the same three words: Missing you, always.

When Josie accidentally collides with a stranger at the postbox, she is unaware that Max has his own reasons for trying to avoid the season...or that their chance encounter is set to alter both their lives - and their hearts - in the most unexpected and beautiful of ways....

Set in London, New York and the gorgeous English countryside, Always, in December is the love story everyone will be talking about this year.

just brilliant

if this doesn't get made into a movie, there's no justice in the world! I was hooked right from the beginning, think in part due to the narrators lovely tone of voice, I just couldn't stop listening, i was slightly shocked by the ending, but it just made the book, will be looking for more books by this author as this was a first from them, won't be the last though.

Beautifully written, but not uplifting at all

An absolutely stunning book, until the very last part. Beautifully written, but I was expecting an uplifting romantic Christmas story that would leave me feeling warm inside. Instead the writer (masterfully) drops a twist at the end that shocks you completely. Genius writing, but if you're looking to feel good at the end of a book, this would not be for you.

Understated and indulgent

Despite the fact that you kind of know what you’re going to get with a book like this, apart from far too many ‘huffing out of breaths’ throughout, the story wasn’t too overcooked and tried to remain thoughtful rather than rely on usual clichés, helped by the wonderfully underplayed and unobtrusive narration.

Heart wrenching

I really enjoyed listening to this book but that’s not surprising as I love heather long and feral she gives life to each of the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and as I was working my through I was so sure I knew where this book was going I had convinced myself that I had it sust but this book manage to pull the chair out from under me
