Publisher's Summary

The beautiful second novel by the author of A Boy Made of Blocks.

Tom, devoted single father to Hannah, is the manager of a tiny local theatre. On each of her birthdays, its colourful cast of part-time actors have staged a fantastical production just for her - a day of wonder.

But there is a reason for these shows...Hannah has a heart condition and Tom wants to make every moment magical for her. 

Now, as she approaches adulthood and begins to spread her wings, and with the theatre under threat of closure, Hannah and Tom have to learn a new way of living. But maybe, just maybe, one final day of magic might just save them both.

A story about finding joy in everyday life, Days of Wonder is the most beautiful and uplifting novel you'll listen to all year.

Not what I thought

Listened to half way but just bear the narration of the dad anymore. The story just seemed a bit flat and like so many other stories out there. I wanted to like it after reading the reviews but it just didn’t do anything for me. What a shame.
