About this deal

For Grace time is running out to solve the family rifts that have been going on for the last thirty years.

Her novels are full of wonderful characters and the stories so well written, much in the same vein as Graham Norton. This is an emotional , heartwarming and captivating read and I finished it in one afternoon , completely unable to put it down !

The reader is given windows into the thoughts and experience of each woman, but some of their secrets are only revealed later in the plot. 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. Ruth Jones, you smashed this book, this was my first book I’ve read by Ruth, I’ll be going back to read the rest. Told by a series of flashbacks the stories of Grace, Alys, Elin and Beca are revealed, together with a surprise twist at the end. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Sounded too familiar - as I was the great-granddaughter in my family until I lost my great-nan when I was 24, I just had to read this to see how the dynamics worked between the 4!Noticed another reviewer mentioned she disliked the way RJ often leaves the endings off words, ie, "nothin" instead of "nothing and "somethin", not "something". THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER***'Love, mess, secrets; this story of four generations of women is filled with Ruth Jones's warmth and wisdom. Love, mess, secrets; this story of four generations of women is shot through with Ruth Jones’s warmth and wisdom. I fell in love with Grace, Elin, Beca (and Soozi) straight away, but it did take me a long time to warm to Alys. She exudes warmth and wisdom, and reading this book makes you feel someone’s draped a warm overcoat across your shoulders.

This is a wonderful story about the relationships between different generations of women within the same family. A genuine young woman who warms to the whole of Beca’s family, she has a positive affect on all of them.The conflicts and emotions are real and raw and you’ll find yourself relating to so many arguments and points of tension. Her debut novel Never Greener was chosen as WHSmith Fiction Book of the Year 2018, was nominated for Debut of the Year at the British Book Awards, was a Zoe Ball Book Club pick, and was a Sunday Times bestseller for fifteen weeks, three weeks at number one. But Grace’s granddaughter, Elin, is also estranged from Alys and any reconciliation will cause huge problems in the family. The characters in this one generally are likeable accept Alys making me warm to the writing of her even more.
