Sophie Hadley Review:

"The People on Platform 5" by Clare Pooley is a delightful contemporary novel that blends humor, romance, and a touch of mystery into a heartwarming tale of second chances and unexpected connections.

The story revolves around Lizzie James, a woman in her late thirties who finds herself unexpectedly single and unemployed after her marriage and career fall apart. Feeling adrift and unsure of what to do next, Lizzie decides to move back in with her eccentric mother and take a temporary job as a waitress at a local pub.

One day, while waiting for a train, Lizzie witnesses an act of kindness that sets off a chain of events leading her to meet an eclectic group of characters who frequent Platform 5 of the local train station. From a reclusive artist to a mysterious musician, each person Lizzie encounters has their own story and struggles, yet they all find solace and connection in the bustling atmosphere of the station.

As Lizzie gets to know the regulars of Platform 5, she begins to reassess her own life choices and discover new passions and possibilities. Along the way, she forms unexpected friendships, finds romance in unexpected places, and learns valuable lessons about the power of kindness, community, and embracing life's uncertainties.
