Book Of The Month for July – The People On Platform 5 by Clare Pooley


Another joyful read from the author of The Authenticity Project, and June’s book of the month author, Claire Pooley.  Every day at 8.05am, Iona Iverson boards the train to go to work with the same group of people who she makes assumptions about. She gives them all nicknames and when Smart-but-Sexist-Surbiton chokes on a grape in front of Iona, Suspiciously-Nice-New Malden steps up to save his life. This event then sparks a chain of events which breaks  the ice with the morning commuters who soon learn that their assumptions don’t match reality.  When Iona’s life falls apart though, will her new friends rally round for her?

The People on Platform 5 is a fabulously entertaining and uplifting, this book features a cast of colourful and charming characters who will stay with you long after you reach the last page.
