~ My Thoughts ~


This was my first Sarah Rayner book, and while the third person present tense style took a little getting used to, the story itself is well-written, heartfelt and moving. 

Rayner uses alternating POVs to give readers a front row seat to the very real struggle Karen, Michael and Abby face while living with mental illness, in all it's varying degrees. This isn't a light read, but doesn't get weighed down with darkness either. And despite the tragedy that strikes, the story as a whole leaves you with a sense of healing and hope.  



~ About the Author ~

Sarah Rayner is the author of the international bestseller, 'One Moment, One Morning' (2010). Her two latest novels, 'The Two Week Wait' (2012) and 'Another Night, Another Day' (2014), are also set in Brighton, England, and feature some of the same characters.

As a novelist, Sarah is known for tackling difficult subjects such as bereavement, infertility and mental illness with empathy and insight, but her latest book is non-fiction. 'Making Friends with Anxiety' is a little self-help book which Sarah hopes will enable people who panic and worry a lot to regain confidence and control.

Sarah has also written two more light-hearted novels - 'The Other Half' and 'Getting Even'. Originally published in the early nineties, these have been fully revised and updated by the author and are now available on Amazon.
