Description

The book starts with Elin, a headteacher, who is organising a surprise 90th birthday party for her grandmother who brought her up when her mother was unable to, despite her grandmother having said that she didn’t want a party. A respected head teacher at the local school, Elin couldn't bear anyone to find out the truth about her mother. Female characters that cross over many generations always makes for a great read, and in this novel from Ruth Jones, her latest that is no exception.

What Grace really wants is to find her daughter Alys; mother of Elin and absent from the family for thirty years. Ruth Jones is not afraid to push the emotional buttons, and her writing keeps getting better and better.The conflicts and emotions are real and raw and you’ll find yourself relating to so many arguments and points of tension. She’s determined that Grace’s big day will be celebrated, her own daughter, Becca is slightly mortified by her mother’s quest to party, much preferring to spend quality time with her great grandmother. The prime and proper headteacher whose daughter fails all but two exams and a husband who runs to play hippie. I predict late success with the paperback, it has been longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction and is a superb summer read. 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.

MARILYN has somehow fallen into motherhood and spent four decades married to DAVID, who's pretty certain he loves her more than anyone has ever loved another person.Love Untold tells the stories of four generations of women, mothers and daughters set in South Wales. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. 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.

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.Elin, Becca’s mother is a headteacher, organised and knows what is best for everyone; her husband, her daughter and even her grandmother. 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.
