I currently reading a non-fiction read, Last Woman Hanged by Caroline Overington
You can read a synopsis and an extract from this book in yesterday’s post
I have just finished The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett an interesting book about how a missed moment can change the course of lives!
What if you had said yes . . . ?
Eva and Jim are nineteen, and students at Cambridge, when their paths first cross in 1958. Jim is walking along a lane when a woman approaching him on a bicycle swerves to avoid a dog. What happens next will determine the rest of their lives. We follow three different versions of their future – together, and apart – as their love story takes on different incarnations and twists and turns to the conclusion in the present day.
The Versions of Us is an outstanding debut novel about the choices we make and the different paths that our lives might follow. What if one small decision could change the rest of your life? Amazon
Next I’m planning on reading The Shadow Hour by Kate Riordan, the author of The Girl in the Photograph
Two generations of women, and one house that holds the terrible secrets of their pasts
1922. Grace has been sent to the stately and crumbling Fenix House to follow in her grandmother’s footsteps as a governess. But when she meets the house’s inhabitants, people who she had only previously heard of in stories, the cracks in her grandmother’s tale begin to show. Secrets appear to live in the house’s very walls and everybody is resolutely protecting their own.
Why has she been sent here? Why did her grandmother leave after just one summer? And as the past collides with the present, can Grace unravel these secrets and discover who her grandmother, and who she, really is? NetGalley
