The hilarious and heart-wrenching new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of STEPPING UP and THE UNMUMSY MUM.


‘Sarah Turner writes family like no one else. With her trademark humour and insight, Turner creates a colourful world of family secrets and misunderstandings, of arguments and avoidance, while also revealing the love that lies beneath. I loved it.’ Katie Marsh, author of UNBREAK YOUR HEART

Sometimes, in order to move forward, you need to go back.

Joni’s always felt like an outsider in her blended family, and as an adult she’s done all she can to avoid them. The only person she’s remained close to is her beloved Nana.

When Nana dies, she leaves behind something unexpected: an itinerary of pre-arranged activities for the whole family to complete over the course of a week. After years of trying but failing to bring Joni back into the fold, this appears to be Nana’s parting shot. After all, nothing says ‘family bonding’ quite like abseiling and ballroom dancing.

With marriage and kids on the horizon, the life Joni’s always dreamed of is finally within touching distance. The last thing she wants to do is revisit the past.

But Joni’s about to discover that a lot can happen in seven days. Nana’s Week of Fun is about to change everything…

‘On The Edge is warm, funny and truthful about the complexities of families. It’s bursting with positivity, and full of characters the reader can root for.’ Caroline Hulse, author of THE ADULTS
