Notes:
One quiet evening in Salisbury, the peace is shattered by a serious car crash. At that moment, five lives collide - those of a flower seller, a schoolboy, an army wife, a security guard and a widower - all facing their own personal disasters. As one of those lives hangs in the balance, the stories of all five unwind, drawn together by connection and coincidence into a web of love, grief, disenchantment and hope that perfectly represents the joys and tragedies of small town life.

I absolutely loved this book which addresses the secret doubts and sadness we experience as we wonder if the life we have chosen (or found ourselves in) has value. The story is told by five different voices whose stories merge. Extremely thought-provoking and well written, it reminded me of novels such as "A Monster Calls" by Patrick Ness and several books by Jim Crace.
