Description

Love, mess, secrets; this story of four generations of women is shot through with Ruth Jones’s warmth and wisdom. Ruth Jones is best known for her outstanding and award-winning television writing, most notably BBC One's Gavin and Stacey , which she co-wrote with James Corden and in which she played the incorrigible Nessa Jenkins. Everyone thinks they know the truth, but they are all keeping secrets, will Grace's party be a joyous reunion or a day of tears and recriminations? The time she looses her cool is with her academic mum which she is the opposite like the rest of the family it seems. Grace is fast approaching her 90th birthday; the only thing on her mind is a reunion with Alys, the daughter she hasn’t seen for 30 years.

Dennoch war es mir zu sprunghaft, der häufige Wechsel zwischen den Zeiten, auch wenn ich natürlich verstehe, und schon früh ahnte, dass der Rückblick am Schluss notwendig ist, um nicht schon alles zu verraten. I must be very careful about spoilers in this delicious novel revolving around this family so full of resentment, long-held anger, prodigal daughters, and cold-water swimming. Love, mess, secrets; this story of four generations of women is shot through with Ruth Jones's warmth and wisdom.Ruth Jones is, of course, a great storyteller, and she has pulled it off again with this tale of four generations of Welsh women. But Grace’s granddaughter, Elin, is also estranged from Alys and any reconciliation will cause huge problems in the family. Widowed in her thirties, left to bring up a teenage daughter, Alys, she ran a boarding house with her friends John, and his sister Cassie for years until Cassie and John's ill-health forced them to move to a home where she visits them every day.

A story of three generations, misunderstandings, heart break, rescue, love and ultimately coming together. Ruth's second novel, Us Three , was an instant Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and paperback and has sold almost a quarter of a million copies. Grace knows that by tracing and meeting Alys after so many years she risks her granddaughter’s fury. Ruth Jones is best known for her outstanding and award-winning television writing, most notably BBC One's Gavin and Stacey, which she co-wrote with James Corden and in which she played the incorrigible Nessa Jenkins.Grace had moved in with John and Cissie Edwards to turn their beautiful home, Syn-yMor, into a guest house. Ruth’s second novel, Us Three, was an instant Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and paperback and has sold almost a quarter of a million copies. For Alys, Grace’s daughter, Elin’s mother she has been constantly running from herself and has come close throughout her life to time running out. Grace doesn’t like a lot of fuss, so a surprise party to celebrate her reaching ninety is not going to be well received.

THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER***'Love, mess, secrets; this story of four generations of women is filled with Ruth Jones's warmth and wisdom. Grace is approaching ninety and a surprise party is planned for her, organised by her granddaughter, Elin, yet all Grace requires is the rift in her family to be healed. Ruth's second novel, Us Three, was an instant Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and paperback and has sold almost a quarter of a million copies. Also found the colloquial grammer used whenever characters spoke irritating, ie the way all the gs were dropped - "nothin" "pickin" etc.This review was written voluntarily and my rating was in no way influenced by the fact that I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel from Transworld Publishers, Random House UK, Bantam Press via NetGalley.

This is a wonderful story about the relationships between different generations of women within the same family. That's Grace, nearly ninety; her wayward daughter Alys; Alys's daughter Elin, a headteacher; and Beca, the younger generation, just 16.I was completely captivated by this character-driven story of mother/daughter relationships and really cared about the characters; I was genuinely sad to finish it and leave them all behind. Nothing much will it seems, but finding her true self is much more important and in that she also finds her love for her music. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. But Grace is close to the end of her life, and she knows she has no choice but to try to heal her family. Any mother or daughter will identify with many of the situations in this book and be encouraged by the final denouement.
