Gosh, what an amazing book! I loved every word of this one. The writing is truly beautiful and the story and characters develop throughout. It’s engaging, thought provoking and hugely enjoyable. There’s some tough topics throughout but these are written into the story well. I’d recommend this to everyone. It’s a true 5 star read and I could happily read it all again!
What a great book. Once I started I couldn't put it down. The story is about Jill,the grandmother, her 3 sons: Tony, Pete and Darren and their partners/wives/grandchildren. Jill is keeping a secret about Tony, secret she knows she should tell the family. Mimi, Pete's wife, has her own secret about her drinking and her feeling towards her newborn twins. Andrea and Tony seem to be happily married, but when Andrea raises the question about them having a baby, cracks in their marriage are starting to show. Just when Jill decides enough is enough and wants to tell Mimi what's going on tragedy strucks. Will they ever find out?
