One Moment, One Morning
One Moment, One Morning: A Novel | Sarah Rayner
11 posts | 10 read | 15 to read
The Brighton to London line. The 7:44 am train. Cars packed with commuters. One woman occupies her time observing the people around her. Opposite, a girl puts on her make-up. Across the aisle, a husband strokes his wife's hand. Further along, another woman flicks through a glossy magazine. Then, abruptly, everything changes: a man collapses, the train is stopped, and an ambulance is called. For at least three passengers on the 7:44 on that particular morning, life will never be the same again. There's Lou, in an adjacent seat, who witnesses events first hand. Anna, who's sitting further up the train, impatient to get to work. And Karen, the man's wife. Telling the story of the week following that fateful train journey, One Moment, One Morning is a stunning novel about love and loss, about family and above all friendship. A stark reminder that, sometimes, one moment is all it takes to shatter everything. Yet it also reminds us that somehow, despite it all, life can and does go on.

A week off work, gonna finish this today - then I have the excitement of picking my next book to read! Its a good read and has had me in tears in places which I don't think I've ever done over a book before 😳 So who else gets excited at the prospect of choosing their next book to read? ☺️ #onemomentonemorning #SarahRayner

I couldn‘t get into this one. The plot seemed to go to slow and too much into the characters thoughts.

It's night where I am but I didn't want to forget to post #PureMorning for #90sinJuly This book is about a group of people who are brought together when they witness someone die on a train trip from Brighton to London. What happens when one moment, one morning, changes your life? @Robothugs @Cinfhen

This was probably the first book that I had to take breaks from reading because I couldn't see the words for tears. #BookThatMadeYouCry #RiotGram

The way Rayner jumps between past & present can be awfully confusing.

Oh my goodness. I'm only a couple chapters into this book. It's absolutely heartbreaking but inspiring...a reminder of how we're all connected in this little world we live in.
