One Moment

UK Publisher: Quercus

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 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.


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

“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

“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

“I loved every single sensitively written and heartbreaking word! REALLY well done” Louise Jensen, author of THE FAMILY
