One Step Too Far opening line: The heat is like another person to push past as I make my way along the platform.
Emily’s journey does not begin on this platform, it starts way back, but it is in the present that we enter her life. This book segues seamlessly between the past and the present and the twist in the tale is something I did not predict and doubt anyone could guess. Running away might be the answer at the time, but it is the running back to what happened in her past that helps heal Emily.
I recommend that you rush out and buy One Step Too Far as soon as possible. This has to be one of the best written books I have read for some time and renews my joy for reading. Tina Seskis will be an author I look out for in future.
First published in Great Britain by Kirk Parolles in 2013
Paperback – 369 pages
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Books South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
Edit: Tina Seskis sent me an email having read this review to say thank you. It is small things like this that make blogging so worthwhile.
