It is a reasonably serious book, there really aren't that many laughs to be had, but it always makes a good change for me to read something with this level of depth. This is a book that has been written in multiple parts, and there are two main families that are focused on.
The are Adam and Emma who are barely communicating, something has happened in the fairly recent past, but the issue itself is skirted around for quite a while, leaving you to come to your own theories, while the story starts to get its legs.
The second part, focuses on Jean's family who are being terrorised by someone very close to them, and leads to Jean having to make some potentially heartbreaking decisions. In Jean's story we learn all about her past up to the present day, and although part 1 of the book I had struggled to really engage with, it was from here onwards that the story became unputdownable for me.
I was enthralled by Jean's story and as the action then goes back to Adam and Emma, things become a lot clearer, and you start to understand from both of their points of view just how their lives have fallen apart recently.
Although I never felt close to tears, I'm sure people who do get incredibly emotional with books, would cry at points of this. I really felt for Emma and Adam, and Jean, in fact all of the characters.
Emma's best friend Zoe and her new relationship provides the light relief, in small sections, just to rebalance your emotions, and I really enjoyed seeing how she was getting on too.
In a Moment really does dissect how many lives can change in the blink of an eye, how one decision can have a massive impact over the rest of your life. A thoroughly impressive book, that whether you are new to this author or have read others, I would recommend you read.
Having read all of Caroline's books now I can't wait for her next publication.
