‘I genuinely couldn’t recommend Saturdays At Noon enough’ 5***** READER REVIEW


After getting into trouble yet again, she’s agreed to attend anger management classes. But she refuses to share her deepest secrets with a room full of strangers.


He’ll do anything to save his marriage and bond with his six-year-old son, Alfie. But when he’s paired with spiky Emily, he wonders whether opening up will do more harm than good.

The two of them couldn’t be more different. Yet when Alfie, who never likes strangers, meets Emily, something extraordinary happens.

Publisher Review

Beautifully written. When I decided to read Saturdays at Noon I had no idea that not only would it very likely be one of my books of the year but it would also rock my world. A stunning and perfect read in every way. * NB * An engaging read that shows how people, and children, can be misunderstood * Woman * A heartbreaking, funny and emotive read * The Sun * It's a beautiful love story, but not the one that you'd expect. Wonderful, hopeful and insightful. This book is an absolute gem and you'll find yourself willing Emily to get her happy ending -- Asia Mackay A sweet tale about second chances. Moving * Heat * Saturdays at Noon is one of those rare books that make you see the world in a different way... This is a satisfying, big-hearted book and a truly accomplished debut for Rachel Marks * WI Life Magazine * Clever and engaging read. Heartbreaking and hopeful, this book is a keeper * Woman's Weekly * Touching, beautifully compassionate and warm; this is a lovely book, sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes funny. Perfect to curl up with and well worth a read -- Dinah Jefferies Sometimes a book comes along and really does make you think... This engaging read is both heart-breaking and full of hope * Woman & Home * I loved this original, at times painful but truly thought-provoking book. A triumph -- Sunday Times bestselling author Katie Fforde Oh how I loved this book [...] complex, imperfect, totally loveable and completely unforgettable -- Claire Pooley Wonderful . . . compassionate and unpredictable -- Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project
