One day soon tells is a dual timeline book. Telling the lives of Imogen (Imi) and Yoss (named after the main character of Joseph Hellers book Catch 22).
It begins in the present day, where Imogen is given a new case at the hospital. A homeless no-name man was brought it. Little does she realise that her world is going to be turned upside down, and she will be thrust back in time to 15 years earlier when she first meets him (Yoss).
Walters captures what life is like being homeless, when you don’t have anywhere to go or anyone to turn to. It’s heartbreaking, and the harsh reality is that there are so many people who live like this and don’t have to.
We all make choices. We all have to do things that we don’t want to or we don’t think we should but we do them in order to survive.
This story is about first love, second chances, and hope, and that one day soon it will be better.
I honestly don’t remember how I came across this book. Possibly recommended by my friend Krissi.
I do know, however, that I have had this book in my TBR pile since 2016 (the year that the book was published).
While this book did not make me cry you will feel deeply for the characters, their hardships and the choices that have had to make, and that there is hope in One Day Soon.
