Winner of the Romantic Novelists' Association 2018 Young Adult Romantic Novel of the Year

There are going to be so many things I wish I could’ve told you in person, Poppy. I won’t get the chance to do that, so perhaps this is my only way…

It’s Poppy Kinsey’s birthday.

She should be blowing out candles and opening presents – but hers falls on the type of heart-wrenching, agonising anniversary she would far rather forget.

The worst day of them all. The day her mother died.

But this year is special because the person she misses most in the world has left her a set of letters, one for each of her next ten birthdays.

As Poppy opens them year by year, she discovers that no matter how tough life gets, her mum will always be by her side, guiding her along the way.

Fans of Cecelia Ahern and S.D. Robertson will love this page turning tear-jerker about making every moment count. 

Read what everyone is saying about Ten Birthdays:

‘My heart. My poor heart… I LOVED IT. I loved everything about it, seriously: the characters are incredibly realistic and sweet and perfectly imperfect, the writing is exquisite... I WANT MORE! … This story was truly beautiful. Sweet, bittersweet, tragic and oh so real, yet funny and full of hope and love. It was like Kerry Wilkinson had decided to turn his words into colours to paint the most beautiful painting.  I read it in one sitting, and now I'm at work, wondering what the hell to do with myself. I feel like this book broke me and put me back together.’  Books are Here for You

 

An emotional but uplifting story… This book brought tears, smiles and some laughs. I truly loved it.’ 5* Goodreads Reviewer

 

‘Warm and heartbreaking and magical. I completely enjoyed this book to bits.5* Kat with the Hat

This is one of those books you read that you won’t forget anytime soon…a very heartfelt book that goes through a gambit of emotional highs and lows.  The Ten Birthdays blurb promised I would find an emotional, uplifting book about love, loss, and hope and it definitely did just that.’ Near Misses and Awkward Kisses

 

An absolutely gripping read which is quite uplifting…Loved this book…I will definitely be looking out for more from this author.’ Read Along with Sue

 

It was impossible to let go, even for a second. Ten birthdays has touched me enormously. In closing this book, I had only one desire, call my mother. That's what I did. This novel has the gift of making us appreciate those little moments that we share with our loved ones’ Path of Words

 
Wow! This book! I have read and loved this author's Jessica Daniel series and was looking forward to this and wow! Such a stunning book! Every word perfect and there for a reason. So beautiful. Such amazing writing. LOVED Poppy, her dad, Madeline, Mark and even Freya. I fell in love with the village in Bristol that Poppy, Mark and Freya are from. From the first work to the last, I loved everything about this book. All the characters, the village, this book, will stay with me for a long time. Five stars are not enough for this brilliant masterpiece. One of my favourite reads this year!’  Renita D’Silva
