But before that she published two rather different novels – The Other Half (Orion 2001) and Getting Even (2002), and these have been fully revised and updated by the author and just republished by Picador as ebooks.

Sarah's follow-up novel The Two Week Wait, came out in summer 2012 and was likewise well received by critics. She calls this is a 'sister' novel rather than a sequel to One Moment, in that it features some of the same characters and is also set in Brighton, yet is a standalone story and there's no need to read one to enjoy the other.

Today I am celebrating the republication of my first two novels, The Other Half and Getting Even as ebooks by Picador.

Since the success of One Moment, One Morning, readers have been asking how they can get hold of these titles, and for a few years they were out of print so the only suggestion I could make was to hunt for second hand paperbacks online.

I'm therefore thrilled Picador UK are reissu... Read more of this blog post »

The Other Half by Sarah Rayner
" The Other Half is one of those rare books that while shining a rather glaring spotlight on a very touchy subject, (adultery) still manages to entertain the reader and maintain a light hearted tone.

Frishawn Rasheed is on page 150 of 304 of The Other Half: Getting to the good part. The lovebirds are feeling the heat in more ways than one, and the wife is getting the "some other bitch has bee playing in my yard" vibe.

“She has no regrets; she knows now he could never have made her happy, even though he has, apparently, joined AA, is doing better. But sobriety is his journey, not hers; he needs to do it for himself, alone. Still, she misses him hugely, doesn't feel ready for another relationship yet. But as time passes, she hopes that she might be, eventually, with someone new, easier, kinder.”
Sarah Rayner, One Moment, One Morning

“That's the tragedy of falling in love; it brings with it the potential for loss.”
Sarah Rayner, One Moment, One Morning
tags: loss, love

“What Karen wants to do - needs to do - is cry, but she can't. Here, alone, when she could howl, beat the sofa cushions, scream; now, somehow, she is unable. It's for fear that if she gives in to it, she'll lose all sense of who she is. She is afraid that if she falls apart in private, then she'll fall apart completely. That if she crumbles, like a house in an earthquake, she will disappear down some deep, dark crevasse, and never be able to pull herself out and put herself back together again.”
