Publisher's Summary

The 07.44 am train from Brighton to London: The carriages are packed with commuters. One woman occupies her time observing the people around her. Opposite, a girl applies her make-up. Across the aisle, a husband strokes his wife's hand. Further along, a woman flicks through a glossy magazine. Then, abruptly, everything changes: A man collapses, the train is stopped, an ambulance called. And for three passengers that particular morning, life will never be the same again.

This book opened with an arresting scene but unfortunately the rest of the novel could never match the beginning. I enjoy introspective works but there must be some sort of insight to fill the lack of a plot. This novel offers only pedestrian observations: it takes time to recover from an unexpected death; an alcoholic partner needs to be turned out in order for him to reform. Ummm, okay. The reader is excellent but she is far better than her material this time.

A reminder that you should live life to the full!

An interesting story of three ladies journeys coming to terms with the negativity in their life and the importance of friendship. I loved how they were all intertwined. Warning: fairly morbid in places. Very well narrated and Alison's voice is easy to listen to.

Sad but insightful

This is the story of how events one morning changed the lives of three women and their families forever. If you are recently bereaved this might be a difficult read, or you might find the insight into bereavement very comforting; whichever way, this book will affect you. It also has something to say to women in abusive relationships and those wanting to break out of the traditional moulds of society. This can be the right book for you to read in these circumstances, or possibly the very wrong one, you will only know when you have read the book!
Whatever the circumstances of the reader, this is a cleverly written book that flows well and shows insight into the inner depths of women.

One moment too long for me!

I really disliked this book. It seemed to be a mixture of a magazine story and some well worn therapy platitudes. Not very keen on the narration either.
