Passengers on board a train bound from Manchester to Euston, leaving at 10.35am. Each passenger travelling for different reasons with no idea there journey's about to be brutally ruined. 

Holly has just landed her dream job, Jeff is heading for his first interview. Naz is working on board the train as a customer service assistant. Nick and his family are on their way to a wedding. Meg and her partner are off on a hiking holiday. Caroline is off to visit her friend and get some space. Rhona is travelling with work, but she is desperate to get back home to her child as she is unwell. In the middle of them all is Saheel and he's about to change the lives of everyone on board forever.

Cath Staincliffe has yet to write a book that I haven't loved and this one is no different. From the first page I was hooked, I couldn't put it down. It had me totally gripped and I spent the whole night reading. 

This book is a powerful and thought provoking story, about a terrible incident that could happen to us or to someone we love and make you really appreciate how precious life is and how we cannot take anything for granted. This book was beautifully written, each character was given the perfect amount of attention within the book. When I first started reading I was worried there would be too many characters to keep track off but I found it really easy to follow and the plot had me completely hooked. It had me desperate to turn the page and find out what was happening next. 

Another great novel by a great author.
