‘If you need something to finally shake off the lockdown blues and get you in the mood for summer, This One Sky Day is it. One of the most joyful, playful novels I’ve read in ages. Magic, food, love, politics on a dream of a Caribbean island.’
From the publisher

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.
