I enjoyed Graham Norton’s first novel, so when I saw this on the bookshelf picked it up. It’s the story of a bereaved daughter who returns to her Irish home to tidy up her mother’s affairs, and in doing so starts to learn more of her own story.
Norton turns out to be an excellent storyteller - painting a picture of the world his characters inhabit, and providing an excellently paced narrative that teases the reader with titbits throughout.
It’s an emotional yet fun journey, and I hope he continues producing novels as I’ll definitely be interested in reading more.
