One Moment, One Morning, Sarah Rayner
The idea of this book was more interesting than the book itself. As a woman is enviously watching a loving couple on a train on their commute to work, she observes that the man suddenly keels over and dies of a heart attack. What happens subsequently, is that this woman shares a cab with another woman who happens to be the couple’s best friend and eventually their lives all intersect. Through the course of the story, each character confronts her own major demon — the death of a spouse, an alcoholic boyfriend, and coming out to a very conservative parent.
While there is a lot of emotional involvement, it is a fairly predictable story and somewhat flat. A good idea but only fairly well-executed, in my humble opinion. Oh, well!
