Born into the lap of luxury and comfortable in the here and now, spoiled, tempestuous Tamara Goodwin has never had to look to the future—until the abrupt death of her father leaves her and her mother a mountain of debt and forces them to move in with Tamara's peculiar aunt and uncle in a tiny countryside village. Tamara is lonely and bored, with a traveling library as her only diversion. There she finds a large leather-bound book with a gold clasp and padlock, but no author name or title. Intrigued, she pries open the lock, and what she finds inside takes her breath away. Tamara sees entries written in her own handwriting, and dated for the following day. When the next day unfolds exactly as recorded, Tamara realizes she may have found a solution to her problems. But in her quest to find answers, Tamara soon learns that some pages are better left unturned and that, try as she may, she mustn't interfere with fate.

I was delightfully surprised with this one . I didn't know what I was getting into when I first started the book , but half-way through I was intrigued and couldn't put the book down .

Fun book to listen to on a long drive. A few weak points, but generally good.

In the beginning, I thought where is this book going? By the time I got to the middle of the book I was very intriuged and was excited to find out what was going to happen.

Wasn't a favourite, but I enjoyed it.

Wouldn't it be nice to know what tomorrow is going to bring? Tamara Goodwin' s privileged life ends when her father dies and her mother and her go to live with her aunt and uncle. She finds a magical book ... Interesting characters.

This book was amazing, I've been recommending it to all of my friends. Like other posters on here, it starts slow but then it really picks up. The details in the beginning end up being more necessary than I would have thought. This book would make a great movie, I kept feeling like it was a movie rather than a novel. Everything flowed seamlessly.

Loved this book. The story was somewhat slow at the beginning, but close to the middle it picked up, and then I couldn't put it down. I plan to read more of her books.
