About this deal

It is a story that tenderly portrays a broken family, outlining the complexities that define history, with an ending that is both heart-breaking, yet uplifting at the same time. It is a joy-filled, life-affirming, sob-inducing novel – with characters you’ll come to know and love – from no. Ruth's second novel, Us Three, was an instant Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and paperback and has sold almost a quarter of a million copies. I particularly liked the dynamic Soozi, Beca’s friend, a talented singer who says what she thinks, usually accompanied by swearing. Grace knows that by tracing and meeting Alys after so many years she risks her granddaughter’s fury.

Also I loved that it is set in Wales, with such familiar and comforting use of the Welsh language and idioms, so reminiscent of my own upbringing. This is an emotional , heartwarming and captivating read and I finished it in one afternoon , completely unable to put it down ! The conflicts and emotions are real and raw and you’ll find yourself relating to so many arguments and points of tension.What Grace really wants is to find her daughter Alys; mother of Elin and absent from the family for thirty years. Her daughter, Alys reluctantly moves in with her but escapes to London as soon as she turned eighteen.

This heart-warming story about Grama Grace and her descendants is eventful and fraught with misunderstanding. Grace, in her 90th year, certainly doesn’t act her age and her home by the sea in Dylan’s Quay has been a refuge for her grand-daughter Elin and Elin’s daughter Beca throughout their lives.This is a wonderful story about the relationships between different generations of women within the same family. 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.

The characters were interesting and well developed and the story was strong enough to keep me reading when I should have been somewhere else! Ruth's second novel, Us Three , was an instant Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and paperback and has sold almost a quarter of a million copies. It's a great read, refreshingly free of stereotypes, as we follow events in the lives of the four women in the run-up to Grace's ninetieth birthday. A wonderfully told story following 4 generations of Welsh women, with complex characters, complicated relationships and a glorious and beautiful ending. Nothing much will it seems, but finding her true self is much more important and in that she also finds her love for her music.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Love, mess, secrets; this story of four generations of women is shot through with Ruth Jones’s warmth and wisdom. 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?
