Waterstones Says

A woozily atmospheric magic realist novel peopled by a cast of quirky, unforgettable characters, This One Sky Day charts the troubled course of true love across an enchanted twenty-four hours.

Dawn breaks across the archipelago of Popisho.

The world is stirring awake again, each resident with their own list of things to do:

A wedding feast to conjure and cook
An infidelity to investigate
A lost soul to set free

As the sun rises two star-crossed lovers try to find their way back to one another across this single day. When night falls, all have been given a gift, and many are no longer the same. The sky is pink, and some wonder if it will ever be blue again.

“Something else”

How do I explain This One Sky Day? It's more of an experience than a read. You want to devour it yet savour it, let it linger on the tongue. This is something else.

I don’t want to say too much about the detail of this book because immersing yourself in this world and slowly understanding what is happening around you is one of the biggest treats this novel offers. A magic realist... More
