About this deal
This is a story about mothers and daughters: the love inherent in that bond and the heartache that miscommunication can bring.
Love Untold is the first book I’ve read by Ruth Jones, but after loving it I’ve added her others to my (ever-growing) list. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. 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? Finally, Beca, sixteen years old, artistic and musical but not good at lessons, constantly at odds with perfectionist Elin who sees education as a gateway to the world, she knows she is about to fail all her GCSEs and disappoint her mother, again. This is a wonderful story about the relationships between different generations of women within the same family.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.
