About the Author
Charity Norman was born in Uganda and brought up in successive draughty vicarages in Yorkshire and Birmingham. After several years' travel she became a barrister, specialising in crime and family law. In 2002, realising that her three children had barely met her, she took a break from the law and moved with her family to New Zealand. Her debut novel Freeing Grace was published in 2011 and After the Fall was published in 2013 and was selected for the Richard & Judy Book Club.

This is the second book I have read by Charity Norman, and I am really looking forward to my next one
Joseph Scott has recently been released from prison, and we soon learn that the reason he was there is that he killed his wife in front of their children. Hannah and her husband Frederick have been bringing up their grandchildren ever since Joseph took away their daughter from them.But now Joseph has been released, he is very keen to start seeing his children again, bit Hannah is determined that this will never happen...
I thoroughly enjoyed The Son-In-Law! Like After The Fall, The Son-In-Law was a book that had me intrigued from the first moments that I opened the book, and as the story progressed I became more deeply involved in what was happening and I could not put this down! I was up late at night desperate to get to the next part and I was often exhausted the next day - but it was worth it to find out a bit more!
The Son-In-Law is told from many different characters perspectives, and this is what makes the book so intriguing and compelling to read. At first I had the same thought that I'm sure many other will...he murdered his wife and committed a serious crime! But as I read on and learned things from the different perspectives, I realised that the story is not as straightforward as it first appears.
Charity Norman has really excelled with her characters, they came to life from the pages and they all seemed ever so realistic.Read more ›
This is a beautifully constructed novel: a bitter-sweet tale which avoids sentimentality whilst exploring the angsts of guilt, love, and bereavement, being a teen, being a tot and being old and dealing with all sorts of changes of paths through life. For the last third of the book my eyes were almost permanently moist and my tuts and sighs prompted my wife to read it too - to exactly the same acclaim.
Here I come Amazon, to buy Charity Norman's others.
