For our first meeting of 2014 (wow hasn't that come round quickly!) we will be reading One Moment One Morning by Sarah Rayner, as suggested by Corinne. 

Here's the Good Reads book description:

The Brighton to London line. The 07:44 train. Carriages 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, an ambulance called. And for three passengers 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. Karen is 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, secrets and lies, family and - above all - friendship. Memorable and moving, gripping the reader from the very first page, it's 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.

You can get it on Amazon from just 1p for a used copy, bargain!

    I'm afraid I need to go on hiatus for a few months due to my health. I'm not leaving because I really do enjoy the group, and I shall let you know as soon as I'm well enough to attend again.

    Hi all, this looks like a great group! I'm moving to Basildon on the 18th so if I manage to read the book by 26th, I'll be there. Otherwise, I'll come along to the Feb one.
