Summary

The new emotional drama from the author of Richard & Judy best seller The Last Thing She Told Me.

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

Ten-year-old Finn, a quirky, sensitive boy who talks a lot and eats only at cafes with a five-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 café when Finn and his mum come in. 

They don't know it yet, but the second time they meet will be a moment which changes both of their lives forever....

Rather Gentle Story - Does Have a Point Eventually

This is actually two separate stories that the listener expects will come together, and judging by the title, come together at one significant Moment which affects both lives forever.

The first story is about Finn Rook-Carter, a 10 y.o. boy who is definitely on-the-spectrum. A bit of an Adrian Mole character. He's having a difficult time fitting in at school and his parents are working their way towards a divorce.

The other story is about Karen Allen (Cas). She's 59, trying to look after her mentally ill younger brother and is struggling to cope financially.

Both stories are a bit of a long saga, and we get to know the characters pretty well as we wait to find out what "The Moment" is going to be.

The final ending is pretty good, and is well worth the journey getting there.

Linda Green writes great thrillers. This book isn't a thriller, but there's something of the same style about it as we anticipate the moment.
