Jenny Éclair has a very fresh and interesting writing style and I can’t wait to read more of her books. This one draws you in from the beginning pages.
Edwina decides that her house of the last 50 years is too big for her and calls an estate agent. As he values the house, memories come flooding back for her. Very moving flashbacks from her past are laid out before us. Happy times, moving times, scandalous times. Secrets come pouring out.
We are treated to another couple of points of view- how will the tales be woven together and come round the full circle?
Jenny creates very rounded characters who are not all sweetness and light- but all the more interesting for it.
You will be sad to come to the end of this book- I really wanted it to just carry on and on.
With many thanks to Little Brown Book Group Uk and Net Galley for the opportunity to read this book.
