Review

Sweet, sharp and simply unforgettable (Lisa Jewell)

A wonderful exploration of love (Katie Fforde)

A must read. Romantic, yet truthful, this is a moving love story with unforgettable characters (Jenny Colgan)

A heart-warming, heart breaking tale of love and loss, with an ending that will knock you off your feet. This is Adele Parks at the top of her game (Mike Gayle)

Utterly engrossing and beautifully written (Freya North)

A fairy tale with bite. Sparkly, compelling and - ultimately unexpected (Jane Fallon)

Adele Parks' wonderful and heart breaking new novel will stay with you (Chris Manby)

Adele Parks is a deft observer of human nature (Kathleen Tessaro)

A thrilling cross-generational love story. We can't think of many authors who create more flawed and loveable characters (Glamour)

This is Adele Parks at her very best (Fabulous)

A heart-breaking twist (Mail On Sunday)

Written with wit, and finishes with a surprisingly bittersweet twist (Sunday Mirror)

An emotional rollercoaster of a read (Woman & Home)

Well observed, original and wonderfully crafted, this is my favourite Adele Parks book to date (Sun)

Brace yourself for a crash landing (Marie Claire)

An emotional punch of an ending (Good Housekeeping)

A big final twist that will keep you reading (Heat)

A sweet, moving and romantic story that will captivate you from the first page (Closer)

The story is completely mesmerising, and the ending heartbreakingly epic. Adele has created a cast of characters that completely cover the moral spectrum. The State We're In is a superb triumph (We Love This Book)

This book made me laugh, caught at my heart and then broke it. The story is clearly building to something but I didn't know what - I won't spoil it but this is definitely not one for public transport (A Case for Books)

A perceptive insight into family life, both idyllic and dreadful, and the individuals that are part of it. The characters are all people that you can believe in...and the ending? It's an absolute stunner! (Our Book Reviews)

A cleverly written and tragically beautiful story filled with empathy and regret, that will stay in your thoughts for a long time, The State We're In is a story of love, family, abandonment and putting ghosts to rest. A haunting tale that will leave you in floods. This truly is Adele Parks at her best, I can't recommend this book enough (Handwritten Girl)

This novel has been tenderly and beautifully written and will stay with me for quite a while (A Lover Of Books)

Book Description

Adele Parks writes novels that real women want to read. Her books get right to the heart of the dilemmas women - and men - face in their lives; her characters are real as are the choices they make. She examines the thorny issues for life today with her trademark tell-it-like-it-is style and takes her stories to unexpected places.
