Summary

***The incredible new novel from the author of 200,000-copy bestseller A Boy Made of Blocks, 'the publishing sensation of the year' (Mail on Sunday)***

'So powerful, yet incredibly gentle and poignant. Utterly and completely beautiful'
Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep and Three Things About Elsie

Magical, heartbreaking, beautiful - Days of Wonder reminds us that stories have the power to save lives.

Tom, single father to Hannah, is the manager of a tiny local theatre. On the same day each year, he and its colourful cast of part-time actors have staged a fantastical production just for his little girl, a moment of magic to make her childhood unforgettable.

But there is another reason behind these annual shows: the very first production followed Hannah's diagnosis with a heart condition that both of them know will end her life early. And now, with Hannah a funny, tough girl of fifteen on the brink of adulthood, that time is coming.

With the theatre under threat of closure, Hannah and Tom have more than one fight on their hands to stop the stories ending. But maybe, just maybe, one final day of magic might just save them both.

A tale about growing up, the beauty of a special bond between father and daughter, and finding magic in everyday life, Days of Wonder is the most moving novel you'll read all year.

'Utterly enchanting . . . a truly beautiful story'
Ruth Hogan, author of The Keeper of Lost Things

'A story of life, love and hope - the perfect antidote to today's world. Phenomenal.'
Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go and Let Me Lie
