Sarah Broadhurst's view...
This is a nice scenario for it takes the diverse lives of seven people over one week whose only real link is the school gate. From au pair to single father, teacher to deserted mum, all of life is exposed through these bruised families. The only problem is it doesn’t really conclude, just as our lives don’t.
Comparison: Elizabeth Noble, Carmen Reid, Isabel Wolff.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
The School Run by Sophie King
A week in the lives of seven people - all on the same route to school: Harriet is waiting for her husband to tell her if their marriage is on – or off. Pippa is about to receive some potentially devastating hospital results. Evie has one week to save her career – and find her missing husband. Nick’s wife died two years ago, leaving him with a troublesome teenage daughter. Martine, a French au pair, is about to run off with a married man. Kitty, a school teacher, accepts a bet to find a man in a week. And Betty watches by the roadside, looking for the driver who killed her son... Little do any of them know that by the end of the week the school run will have become a collision course, connecting their lives in more ways than one.
