Three books you have to read this month
Lucy Diamond’s The House of New Beginnings is a wonderful novel about heartache and friendships and new beginnings. Set in Brighton, it revolves around very different women who live in a gorgeous old house near the seaside. A lovely weekend read. MacMillan.
‘I was scrubbing potatoes when it happened’. How can any book that starts off like that not be just fabulous! The Seven Imperfect Rules of Elvira Carr is Frances Maynard’s debut novel … and it’s wonderful. If you liked The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, you’ll want to read this. Trust us. Pan MacMillan.
Does saying goodbye get easier every time you do it? Clare Swatman’s Before You Go starts with an ending … the death of Ed, the love of Zoe’s life. But the ending is just the beginning … when Zoe decides to tell Ed all the things she never said. A wonderful romantic read. MacMillan.
