Perfect to curl up with and well worth a read -- Dinah Jefferies Clever and engaging read. Heartbreaking and hopeful, this book is a keeper * Woman's Weekly * 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 * A sweet tale about second chances.

About Rachel Marks

Rachel Marks studied English at Exeter University before becoming a primary school teacher. Despite always loving to write, it wasn't until she gained a place on the 2016 Curtis Brown Creative online novel writing course that she started to believe it could be anything more than a much-loved hobby. Her inspiration for her first book, Saturdays at Noon, came from the challenges she faced with her eldest son, testing and fascinating in equal measure, and the research she did to try to understand him better. Until Next Weekend is her second novel.
