About this author

Sarah Rayner is the author of the international bestseller, 'One Moment, One Morning' (2010). Her two latest novels, 'The Two Week Wait' (2012) and 'Another Night, Another Day' (2014), are also set in Brighton, England, and feature some of the same characters.

As a novelist, Sarah is known for tackling difficult subjects such as bereavement, infertility and mental illness with empathy and insight, but her latest book are non-fiction.

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 »

This is the first novel I've read by Kate Harrison, and it won't be the last. Even though I'm way older than the target market it's aimed at, I really enjoyed Soul Beach, thanks partly to a very accessible writing style and short, punchy chapters.

“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.”
