Note from the Author:
This is a book written during 2020, a time when all of us, because of restrictions, had to reassess our lives and the things that are important to us. It was all about thinking what we’d done, the people and places that have shaped us, and how we could each build a bright future. I am indebted to Charles Dickens for giving me the idea that became Everyday Magic.
My book is absolutely nothing like A Christmas Carol but, if you’ve read his book, you’ll recognise how, primarily in its simple structure and in some scenes, there are nods in its direction. Mainly, however, my book carries the same message: if we confront our pasts and how they have has shaped us, we can always change our futures for the better.
I hope therefore that it’s an uplifting book and, of course, that you enjoy it. – Charlie Laidlaw
Expected Publication Date: May 26th, 2021
Genre: Literary fiction/ Contemporary Fiction/ Humour
Carole Gunn leads an unfulfilled life and knows it. She’s married to someone who may, or may not, be in New York on business and, to make things worse, the family’s deaf cat has been run over by an electric car.
But something has been changing in Carole’s mind. She’s decided to revisit places that hold special significance for her. She wants to better understand herself, and whether the person she is now is simply an older version of the person she once was.
Instead, she’s taken on an unlikely journey to confront her past, present and future.
Everyday Magic is an uplifting book filled with humour and poignancy, and reminds us that, while our pasts make us who we are, we can always change the course of our futures.
