Emma the main character, is living in Brighton until her partner persuades her to move to France, but once they move Emma finds out a horrible truth that turns her world upside down and you are taken along with her.
The story is both funny and sad all at the same time and Barr tells the story with her usual eye for detail which is what i love about the way she writes.
It kept me gripped and I read it in an entire weekend it is v v good.
I cant wait for her next book!!!!!!!
The book kept my interest to the end, and I could really identify with the main character, Emma.
All in all, really worth reading.
The story is told from two perspectives, as is typical from Barr's stories. This time, the story is told by Emma, who is relocating to France with her partner Matt and their daughter Alice, and is also told by Hugo... let's just say you can work out early on how Emma's and Hugo's lives end up coming together. I was thinking "here we go", I mean Barr's stories usually have a twist in them which you can guess at but still come across as powerful once it's officially revealed, but I did guess particularly early on and I thought it would be a boring read from that point, but it surprised me that the twist was made known early on, so the focus became of Emma and Hugo sorting out the mess from the twist. Yes, there are a lot of familiar things about Barr's writing, such as characters dealing with childhood issues and thinking that going abroad solves all the problems, but there is plenty to like about the book.
A good read if you like some of Emily Barr's other stories or if she's an author you were thinking of giving her books a go.
I'm not sure this is her best piece of work but once you are hooked on this author (as you surely will be) you will want to add it to your collection.
It arrived exactly as described and came promptly through the post
Main character Emma is portrayed as frustratingly weak and submissive at the outset, but as the story unfolds she undergoes a transformation as a result of the situations she finds herself in. Her growing confidence and self-reliance make her an increasingly likeable character, so that by the end of the novel I found myself caring what happened to her.
