I downloaded this book in October but have only just finished it - not because I wasn't enjoying it, but I just never seem to find the time to sit and read!
I can highly recommend it, I've not read one of her books before (and have always thought of her as a comedienne), but the story was good - I think the title 'Moving' related both to one of the characters moving house, but also the theme of the book - which looks back at the events affecting a blended family from the perspective of two of the family members and the girlfriend of another (which I found very moving in parts).
Don't want to give too much information in case you decide to read it, but I found it an enjoyable read which had me in tears at the end.
I have just read the review Jax and love the sound of this book. Been looking for something to get my teeth into since finishing "The Carer" and I think this will be the one for me. Thanks for the recommendation
There is a lot to be said for being part of a group, and the support and friendship that is gained from this.

Ha ha, hardly call her a friend and I would very much doubt she’d know my name. She stood out at school as she was always in the school plays and grabbed attention regularly. I have one of those long school photos which she is on. Maybe I should put it on here and see if you can pick her out. I have a family connection to an actor you will probably know, Paul Eddington. He and my dad were second cousins.

Ooh Jax, you’ve reminded me that Felicity Kendal used to come into the place I worked in Swiss Cottage. And thinking of Coronation Street, I once served Rita Sullivan, (Barbara Knox)in a cocktail bar that I worked in. She had half a Stella Artois.
