I really enjoyed it, the characters were likeable, and I wanted the best for them all. In a way it reminded me a little of the kind of books Maeve Binchy wrote and I mean that as a huge compliment, in terms of warmth and characterisation. I couldn’t put the book down, but I didn’t want it to end, which for me is always a sign of an enjoyable read.
I also liked the Flower Arrangement too, but the Memory Shop wasn’t as sad!
Nora has to clear her Grandparents house in Ireland and decides to sell the things she doesn't want to keep in the shop below the accomodation her Grandparents lived in. She is reeling from betrayal so needs a place to heal and this is ideal. She makes friends with the local shopkeepers and finds out more about her Grandmother, leading her to discover the secret she took to her grave, which explains why Nora's Mum left home at 17 and never returned .
I think my only criticsm was the book ended quite abruptly, they're could have been another couple of chapters but I couldn't give the rating any less than 5 stars. A lovely book to read (I couldn't put it down hence the 4am finish! )...
The ending was predictable as was what happened to the other main characters but that didn’t detract from a really good story, well written & entrancing.
The reader was drawn into the world of Nora & the disparate cast of characters, the Dublin setting & all the dramas & traumas experienced by us all at one time or another.
A book I would recommend & I will be looking out for other Ella Griffin novels in the future.
