We are delighted to be able to offer 3 copies of In Just One Day by Helen McGinn, set in Hampshire, with a trip to Venice.

3 copies of In Just One Day

Everything can change – In Just One Day

Flora has always adored her brother Billy. Born just eighteen months apart, their childhood was spent like two peas in a pod – no one could separate them. Now, as adults, they remain the best of friends. And as Flora is immersed in family life, Billy is always there to lend a hand.

But, in just one day, everything changes.

In just one day, Flora’s life falls apart.

In just one day, Flora has to learn how to live again.

From the nostalgia of seaside Britain to the breath-taking beauty of Venice, in tears and laughter, join Helen McGinn for this emotional, uplifting and joyful story about love in all its guises. But above all, this is an unforgettable story of one little girl and the brother she adored.

    I love South African Pinotage, a lovely fruity red. I first drank it on a trip to that country and fell in love with both the wine and the country.

    I’m following Helen in Insta (spacebeagle45). I love wine; red for mellow evenings, rose for summer days outside and white for sharing a bottle with friends any time. And of course, Champagne all year round!

    My favourite would be a good Rioja, served with a roast.

    I am more of a prosecco person, but if it has to be the wine I’d like the Rose most or a delish sangria for Summer nights.

    I don’t like the taste of wine and therefore I tend to have lemonade when others are drinking alcohol.

    I don’t enjoy the taste of wine and usually need to eat something salty with it to take the taste away. I guzzle rather than sipping.

    But, I love the tingly tipsy feeling, and the fuzzy warmth that a couple of glasses gives me, so I always go back for more.

    I rarely drink wine nowadays as I do not like to drink alone and I won’t drink and drive. We used to love a very dry sherry called Manzanilla and my husband usually had a glass while HE was cooking dinner! Of course I would join him while I laid the table!

    I love a glass of wine with my dinner. My favourite is New Zealand, Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. I also like Cotes de Rhone and for red, a Malbec or Rioja.

    I never really used to drink wine, and if i did it had to be a white with lemonade. Then some one gave me a glass of white grenache. OMG! what a game changer! i love it, although some of the fruity wines like blossom hill or echo falls are an OK go to if i don’t have any grenache.

    My tastes have changed since I have aged. I used to like white wine in my 20s, then rose wine in my 30s and now red wine in my 40s. Of course you can’t beat a glass of champagne and my favourites are Bollinger R.D and Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Rose.

    Oh, I love Blossom Hill’s white wine – they are the best. I used to buy M&S’s Cava but they no longer produce it as they said no call for it. Rather strange decision as it sold out the xmas before! Red tends to give me a headache so I’ll only have one glass with a meal. Rose, I’m yet to find a good one.

    Red wine is my favourite tipple all year round. Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a special treat from time to time on a Friday night for me – there is no better way to warm your cockles on a chilly autumnal evening. And of course it has been scientifically proven that red wine is good for your heart. 🙂
