About this deal

She exudes warmth and wisdom, and reading this book makes you feel someone’s draped a warm overcoat across your shoulders. This review was written voluntarily and my rating was in no way influenced by the fact that I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel from Transworld Publishers, Random House UK, Bantam Press via NetGalley.

Sosuke Natsukawa's international bestseller, translated from Japanese by Louise Heal Kawai, is a story for those for whom books are so much more than words on paper.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. Love, mess, secrets; this story of four generations of women is filled with Ruth Jones's warmth and wisdom. 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. The depth of emotion between Judy, Chloe and baby Bobo is wonderful to watch, and in Love Untold this intergenerational maternal web is beautifully captured by Ruth Jones. As the people of Faha anticipate the endlessly procrastinated advent of the electricity, and Noel navigates his own coming-of-age and his fallings in and out of love, Christy's past gradually comes to light, casting a new glow on a small world.

In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet up once a week to investigate unsolved murders. This odd couple will go on three magical adventures to save books from people who have imprisoned, mistreated and betrayed them. I cried and I laughed and now there’s a hole in my life where Grace and her dysfunctional family used to be. Love, mess, secrets; this story of four generations of women is shot through with Ruth Jones's warmth and wisdom.Is she strong enough to reach out to her wayward daughter, now seventy years old, and heal the rift? 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. 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?
