An engrossing, bittersweet read peppered with moments of intense beauty... as compelling as any thriller I've read in the past year. Add to this sensitivity, humour and tender insightfulness and you've an absolute corker of a novel -- Laura Wilkinson, author of PUBLIC BATTLES, PRIVATE WARS
Sarah Rayner doesn't just tell a great story, she speaks to the vulnerabilities in all of us. Heartwarming and suspenseful -- Bobbie Darbyshire, author of LOVE, REVENGE AND BUTTERED SCONES
Written with great insight... It dealt with the area of mental health sensitively but with raw deep emotion -- charlenejess.wordpress.com
A thought-provoking book. Rayner's exploration of the issues faced by three very "everyday" people puts the issue of mental health at the centre of worlds which appear cosy and stable. It makes you realise that the line between fine and needing help is very fine indeed -- Lizzie Enfield, author of LIVING WITH IT
I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys strong, character-driven drama. Very moving, sad and funny -- beingannereading.blogspot.com
Intertwining narratives move the plot on at a brisk pace and, despite the subject matter, this becomes an uplifting rather than depressing read as the likeable key characters form friendships and learn strategies to help them return to an even keel. Rayner understands her subject well and has written an enjoyable and insightful narrative which gently, but expertly, probes this often avoided, certainly less charted, emotional territory * Press Association *
