A post to share all the bookish things I have been up to during the week – the books I’ve read; the books I’m currently reading and anything else remotely bookish and worth sharing. A simple post to check in with bookish friends and hear about their bookish week.
Better late than never….this week has been a bit of a jumble with too many books in various stages of being read. I finished 1 book and started quite a few more.
The Mother’s Promise by Sally Hepworth – 4/5 – A touching story of a mother’s love for her daughter and the lengths she will go to to protect her child. This book had lots of feels….made even more emotional because I have a teenage daughter around the same age as Zoe.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a compelling read with well defined characters and an interesting plot that covered a variety of issues – loneliness, fear, social anxiety, abuse, infertility, illness and death – in a sensitive way. I loved how all of the characters stories came together…even though it was obvious how they would intertwine before I was too far into the book.
This is not my first Sally Hepworth novel…and it won’t be my last. I have also read The Family Next Door and The Secrets of Midwives….both 4 star reads.
Have you read any of her novels?
Any recommendations for which one I should pick up next?
- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
- Quiet by Susan Cain
- The Girls by Lisa Jewell
- Life in Flow by Kate Kendall
What have you been reading this week? I’d love to hear from you.
