So many…it’s really difficult to pick…
Two historical books:
A World Between Us by Lydia Syson. Lydia’s in my writing group, so I’m like a proud auntie to this book. A touching love triangle set against the skillfully drawn background of the Spanish Civil War
The Look by Sophia Bennett A really enjoyable well-balanced story about two sisters, one’s talent spotted by a model agency, the other is diagnosed with cancer.
Fifteen Days without a Head by Dave Cousins – Made me laugh, made me cry. Two brothers fight to cover up their mum’s disappearance.
The author is American (but lives in the UK). The setting is America (but there’s a British character). Whatever. At Yellow Lake by Jane McLoughlin constantly amazed me with its brilliance.
