Touching, warm, funny and poignant and a must for all of her fans. Cecelia Ahern's new novel has Lucy Silchester's Life as a central character (in fact he is a grumpy middle-aged man) who is out to sort out his charge and will not take no for an answer...

If you like Cecelia Ahern you might also like to read books by Deborah Wright, Katherine Webb and Elizabeth Noble.


The Time of My Life by Cecelia Ahern

The latest bestseller from the international star. Are you taking your life for granted? Lucy Silchester is. And she's lost sight of everything important. Because Lucy's lying to herself -- and to everyone else -- about what's going on. Her friends are cut short, her family cold-shouldered and her work colleagues tricked. Only Lucy herself knows the truth. Time for a wake-up call -- an invitation to an appointment with life. Her life. Who in this case turns out to be a kindly, run-down man in a bad suit, who is determined to change things, and won't let Lucy off the hook. She's going to have to make time for him.
