From the author of the bestselling One Moment, One Morning comes another beautiful, bittersweet novel set in Brighton.
Three people, each crying out for help . . .
There’s Karen, worried about her dying father; Abby, whose son has autism and needs constant care; and Michael, a family man on the verge of bankruptcy. As each sinks under the strain, they’re brought together at Moreland’s Clinic. Here, behind closed doors, they reveal their deepest secrets ,confront and console one another and share plenty of laughs .But how will they cope when a new crisis strikes ?
A big thank you to Francesca Main at picador for sending me a proof copy to review .I was really intrigued as it was released to coincide with Mental health week which is this week .This is a area very important to me ,I am very honest in that I suffer with depression and anxiety . So for me personally its beneficially to read around this area.
Even more so when I discovered there was a character who had a son with autism same age as lynx…sometimes in life we come across books because we was meant to ! I felt like this book was talking to me on more than one occasion .
It dealt with the area of mental health sensitively but with raw deep emotion that was written with great insight .
This touched me on so many levels and it gives great insights into peoples minds when they are unwell.
The characters were varied and I really enjoyed reading the different narratives and about variety of peoples lives .
My favourite character was Abbey because I really connected with her ,how she describes her love for her son but also her frustrations and exhaustions at his autism .
I had never read any of her work before so feel very honoured to have been sent one at such a crucial time of year and as I said I felt like this book was really talking to me .
