'You'll love every single heart-breaking word' *****

'Hands down one of the best books I've read in years' *****

Finn and Kaz are about to meet for the first time.

Ten-year-old Finn, a quirky, sensitive boy who talks a lot and only eats at cafes with a 5-star hygiene rating, is having a tough time at school and home.

Outspoken Kaz, 59, who has an acerbic sense of humour and a heart of gold, is working at the cafe when Finn and his mum come in.

Praise for One Moment

  • Original and moving - Mirror

  • A well-drawn story of love, empathy and friendship - Candis

  • I tore through it, alternating between rage and pain. In particular, Kaz (and Terry's) situation is explored with forensic authenticity - Linda has centred the experience of people so often treated as marginal in fiction - Shelley Harris, author of VIGILANTE

  • Heart-rending and packed with emotion - a thought-provoking read - Rosanna Ley, author of THE LEMON TREE HOTEL

  • Such a beautiful, careful, thoughtful, gorgeously-observed story, where the characters pulsated off the page. And oh, the finale... A breathtaking moment where I think my heart stopped. I cried and cried - Louise Beech, author of CALL ME STAR GIRL
