Lovers of 25 years ago meet by chance in a station. They spend the day reflecting on their relationship and then there is the return journey to the station. Will they/won’t they? This tension is held throughout a wonderfully sensitive and beautifully written tale that covers the lives of two people in the real time of one day in alternating chapters devoted to each. I won’t tell you what happens just ten hours later, you need to read this yourself.

Synopsis

The Moment by Claire Dyer

Paddington station, nine a.m., rush hour. As the crowds ebb and flow, time suddenly stands still for two people: Fern and Elliott, ex-lovers who parted twenty-five years before and never expected to see each other again. But here they are, face to face, and the connection is as powerful as it was the day they first met. Their lives have moved on - to marriage, children and divorce - yet neither has stopped regretting the day that drove them apart. Fern gives Elliott her number and they tentatively arrange to meet again that evening when both will be travelling back through the station. And, as the day ticks on, and the memories resurface, both Fern and Elliott reflect on the past. As their emotions go round in circles, so does the Paddington clock, counting down the minutes to eight p.m. - and the moment the future is in their hands.

Louise Candlish, author of The Day You Saved My Life

'Beautifully written, with perfect form and pace. Fern and Elliott's vivid emotional journey will stay with me
Hilary Boyd, author of Thursdays in the Park

Lovereading has given me the opportunity to delve into new and exciting worlds of authors who I would never have tried before.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Love Reading - it not only does what it says on the tin, it does it with Jam on!!

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.
