Summary

Her whole world hinged on the moment one man jumped.... On a perfect summer's day in Paris, tourists on a river trip watch in horror as drama unfolds. A small boy has fallen overboard and disappeared below the surface of the water. As his mother stands frozen to the spot, another passenger jumps....

This is the story of how a single act of courage transforms the lives of all those involved. Louise Candlish returns with her most page-turning and emotional story to date.

Very disappointing

I listened to this whole book all the while awaiting a twist or turn or something that would get the story going, but it never came. The characters were well rounded, but the story itself was bland and predictable - nothing ever happened. There were many opportunities in the storyline but the author seemed to want a break from interesting twists and turns and settled instead for a boring love story. I probably would have thought this was an OK book if I hadn't listened to a number of Louise Candlish's other books which were full of surprises. If you liked The Swimming Pool, Our House, The Sudden Departure of the Frasers or the Disappearance of Emily Marr then I wouldn't bother with this one as it will be a total waste of your credit.

Great story - great narrator.

Where does The Day You Saved My Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top ten.

What did you like best about this story?

The depth of the story and the exploration of the characters - I looked forward to getting into my car and listening to the next chapter...

What does Juanita McMahon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love her voice...she is very talented and I often choose a book simply because she is the narrator.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reaction...more of a prolonged enjoyment of the story.
