5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, 22 Sep 2011
This review is from: Ties That Bind (Paperback)
From the first few words I was caught up in this book. The writing is so clear and vivid that I saw each scene unfold in my mind's eye. The characters sprang to life and the story got going at once and had me gripped right to the end. It's everyday life, captured perfectly - but with a twist and a sting and some heartbreak along the way. So be warned, it's easy to get lost in this novel and hard to put it down and do mundane things like cook dinner or hold a conversation!

When I'd finished it (all too soon) I found many of the questions raised kept going round my head ... I wondered whether I could do what the main character did, and walk out on my life and begin a new one? (The temptation probably comes to many women who find themselves caring for everyone around them, but having no time to deal with their own needs.) It made me think about how people who love each other can sometimes build insurmountable barriers between themselves ... And how we lose control of our own identities.

Wouldn't we all like to decide on a new name, a new haircut, a new home, a new job, a new lover? But could we really leave behind our old habits and relationships? Oh, there's a lot of juicy stuff in this book if you like to think and talk, and I'm going to recommend it to my book club so we can do just that for hours over a few bottles of wine!
