Product Description


A real page-turner . . . You'll want to inhale it in one breath (Easy Living)

Carefully crafted and empathetic (Sunday Times)

Delicious, big hearted, utterly addictive . . . irresistible (Marie Claire)

Delves deep into the importance of love and friendship (Manchester Evening News)

Written from the heart (The Bookseller)

I was engaged and moved by this irresistible novel about friendship, family and dealing with life's blows (Woman & Home)

Rayner has done it again - with her knack of turning what at first seems an unlikely subject into a gripping read. She made me care desperately what happened to these people and their lives. A brilliant book (Brighton and Hove Independent)

A sympathetic insight into the causes and effects of mental ill-health as it affects ordinary people. Powerful. (My Weekly)

A great read that fearlessly tackles how mental health problems can affect ordinary people. A difficult subject written about with optimism and a light touch (Coastway Radio)

An engrossing, bittersweet read peppered with moments of intense beauty... as compelling as any thriller I've read in the past year. Add to this sensitivity, humour and tender insightfulness and you've an absolute corker of a novel (Laura Wilkinson, author of PUBLIC BATTLES, PRIVATE WARS)

Sarah Rayner doesn't just tell a great story, she speaks to the vulnerabilities in all of us. Heartwarming and suspenseful (Bobbie Darbyshire, author of LOVE, REVENGE AND BUTTERED SCONES)

Written with great insight... It dealt with the area of mental health sensitively but with raw deep emotion (

A thought-provoking book. Rayner's exploration of the issues faced by three very "everyday" people puts the issue of mental health at the centre of worlds which appear cosy and stable. It makes you realise that the line between fine and needing help is very fine indeed (Lizzie Enfield, author of LIVING WITH IT)

I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys strong, character-driven drama. Very moving, sad and funny (

Intertwining narratives move the plot on at a brisk pace and, despite the subject matter, this becomes an uplifting rather than depressing read as the likeable key characters form friendships and learn strategies to help them return to an even keel. Rayner understands her subject well and has written an enjoyable and insightful narrative which gently, but expertly, probes this often avoided, certainly less charted, emotional territory (Press Association)

Book Description

An emotional novel about friendship and loss from the bestselling author of One Moment, One Morning and The Two Week Wait

This poignant novel, set in Brighton, is about three strangers who are facing the most horrendous challenges in their lives and are failing miserably. Brought together at the Moreland’s Clinic, they are each seeking help and are on the very verge of mental breakdown. There’s Abby. Her marriage has failed, the house is due to be sold from under her feet, and she faces the challenge of single parenthood to her seven-year-old son who has autism and needs constant care. Then there’s Michael, a family man, but his florist business had failed. Everything must go, even the car. Unable to verbalise the strain he is going through, he returns home one night and smashes the garden shed to smithereens. Lastly there’s Karen, living alone with two small children, She misses her husband who died two years ago. When her father has a stroke she flips, she can no longer be the strong one, she can’t stop crying, she feels guilty about things she should have done and should not have done all the time.

They are receiving psychiatric counselling at the Clinic, at last talking through their problems and receiving the professional help they so urgently need, talking confidentially, unburdening themselves and at last beginning to heal. They build up friendships and learn about each other in ‘group meetings’. They are becoming stronger, they laugh together, support and console one another and are beginning to look forward to their new lives. But what will happen as they become more independent? Will they sink or swim?

This is a fantastic read. The mental health issues of each patient at the clinic are well described, as is their therapy. The characterisation is wonderful, the writing full of empathy and understanding. It’s a deep, interesting and thought-provoking read. I loved it.

Format: Kindle Edition
Sarah Rayner’s novel, One Moment, One Morning chief protagonist was Karen whose husband died suddenly on a train one morning. I was drawn into this story and sympathised greatly with Karen in her loss so I was thrilled to find out that Karen was one of the main characters in Another Night, Another Day.

In this book, also set in Brighton, she is attending Moreland’s Psychiatric Clinic and we are introduced to a wider cast of characters who are all at the clinic for mental health issues. Alongside Karen we follow Michael and Abby’s stories as they are all treated at the clinic.

This is a sympathetically written book which opens with two therapists at Moreland’s discussing the death of the patient. From then on each chapter focusses on each of the character’s lives, starting with their lives prior to entering the clinic. We see Michael struggling financially whilst hiding the details from his family, Karen trying to support her mother with her father’s illness and Abby who is overwhelmed with the imminent separation from her husband and who faces daily disapproval from others when out with her son, Callum, who is autistic.

The most interesting section of the book for me was the part set in the clinic where the reader gets an insight into the techniques used by the therapists to help the patients. At this point we are introduced to more of the patients, notably, Lilli a TV star, Colin and Rita with the interaction between the patients uplifting what could have been quite a depressing read.

Format: Paperback
I have just read my first ever book by author Sarah Rayner, I have had Another Night Another Day on my to be Read pile for a couple of months now and I was looking forward to starting this one as I love finding authors who are new to me.

This was a very powerful and poignant read because the storyline follows people who have mental health issues, which is something that I can relate too. Michael, Karen and Abby are all very down to earth, every day people who you would not stereotypically assume have any kind of mental illness. Karen is a single mum to two children after her husband died so suddenly, Abby is has a son who has autism and needs constant round the clock care and Micheal is about to lose his business and could be facing bankruptcy. The three characters come together during their time at Morelands Clinic where they must learn to talk about their problems, thoughts and feelings.

Mental health seems so stereotypical in the real world so I love that the author has brought together a group of characters who are so "normal" to show that it can effect anyone. Each of the characters are struggling in their day to day lives in different ways but in ways that I am sure quite a few of us can relate to. I really warmed to all three of the main characters in this book firstly because they were all so well developed and secondly because I could relate to their characters too.

I didn't realise until I read the reviews of this authors previous books after finishing this one that her previous books tell the story of two of the main characters in this book Karen and Abby, so I can't wait to now go back and read the previous books.
