Book Beginnings On Fridays (Another Night, Another Day)
Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Rose City Reader and as she says the idea of this memeis
for you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book
you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the
sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the
opener inspires. Please remember to include the title
of the book and the author's name. There's a linky list on
the website and you can use #BookBeginnings on Twitter.
Another Night, Another Day by Sarah Rayner
Johnnie struggles to open the heavy metal door of the clinic without dropping the stack of files he has clutched to his chest.
'Ah, Johnnie,' says Gillian, just as his duffle bag slides off his shoulder. 'Thank goodness I've caught you.' She is chatting with Danni, the receptionist.
Johnnie's heart sinks. The traffic into Lewes was nose to tail, his first session is due to start in less than five minutes, and he badly needs a cup of coffee.
'Could we catch up at lunch?' he ventures.
He can tell at once from her expression that they can't.
From the author of the bestselling One Moment, One Morning comes another beautiful, bittersweet novel set in Brighton…

Karen, about to lose her father; Abby, whose son has autism and needs

laughs. But how will they cope when a new crisis strikes?
