About this deal

The time she looses her cool is with her academic mum which she is the opposite like the rest of the family it seems. In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet up once a week to investigate unsolved murders. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher / author for providing me with a free electronic copy of this book for review. Grace, in her 90th year, certainly doesn’t act her age and her home by the sea in Dylan’s Quay has been a refuge for her grand-daughter Elin and Elin’s daughter Beca throughout their lives. For Grace time is running out to solve the family rifts that have been going on for the last thirty years.

Grace is close to Alys’s own daughter, Elin, but the family rift runs deep, affecting Elin’s marriage and her relationship with her teenage daughter Beca. The prime and proper headteacher whose daughter fails all but two exams and a husband who runs to play hippie. 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?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. A respected head teacher at the local school, Elin couldn't bear anyone to find out the truth about her mother.

The thread which binds together mothers and daughters throughout their lives is awesomely strong; motherhood forges links of steel across generations, as I’ve seen myself since our own daughter gave birth to her first child - a girl.We follow Elin as she struggles with her marriage, and Becca as she discovers love for the first time.

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. This is an emotional , heartwarming and captivating read and I finished it in one afternoon , completely unable to put it down ! The 2019 Christmas Day special of Gavin and Stacey gained national critical acclaim, drawing an audience of over 18 million, winning a BAFTA for TV moment of the year and a National Television Award for Impact.

THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER***'Love, mess, secrets; this story of four generations of women is filled with Ruth Jones's warmth and wisdom. Meanwhile Grace's great-grand-daughter Beca is oblivious to all these worries, too busy navigating the highs and lows of teenage life and keeping secrets of her own.

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. That's Grace, nearly ninety; her wayward daughter Alys; Alys's daughter Elin, a headteacher; and Beca, the younger generation, just 16. A book not afraid to glamourise the wonder of mother and daughter relationships, but to strip it back and let everyone see what it can be like. Love Untold is the first book I’ve read by Ruth Jones, but after loving it I’ve added her others to my (ever-growing) list.This book looks at multi generation female relationships and familial ties as well as what bonds and binds mothers and daughters.
