The compelling and heartbreaking new 1940s saga from Benita Brown
About the Author
Benita Brown was born and brought up in Newcastle by her English mother, the youngest of thirteen children, and her Indian father, who came to Newcastle to study medicine and fell in love with the place and the people. After meeting her husband while she was at drama school in London, Benita returned to her home town and worked as a teacher and broadcaster before becoming a full-time writer, publishing many much-loved novels. Sadly, Counting the Days was Benita's last book, as she passed away in April 2014 following a sudden illness. She will be greatly missed.
Top customer reviews
It is a good, well written story with believable, well rounded, very human characters who are neither totally good nor totally evil. Whilst the very complex relationship she has with her mother is explained, I especially enjoyed how her relationship with Julie, her sister, matured through the book. They go from not really having much in common with each other at the start of the book, to forging a real friendship by the end.
The story moves at a very good pace, it is interesting to read and keeps you guessing as to how everything is all going to tie up at the end, which when it does happen, is extremely satisfying.
I really enjoyed reading this book which has no raunchy scenes or bad language, yet doesn't come across as sickly sweet.
