Description

What a wonderful, heart-warming, beautifully emotional story by Ruth Jones of 4 generations, trying to navigate their own lives and their relationships with others and each other. Elin, Becca’s mother is a headteacher, organised and knows what is best for everyone; her husband, her daughter and even her grandmother.

Noticed another reviewer mentioned she disliked the way RJ often leaves the endings off words, ie, "nothin" instead of "nothing and "somethin", not "something". Her daughter, Alys reluctantly moves in with her but escapes to London as soon as she turned eighteen. Female characters that cross over many generations always makes for a great read, and in this novel from Ruth Jones, her latest that is no exception. Her novels are full of wonderful characters and the stories so well written, much in the same vein as Graham Norton.It is a joy-filled, life-affirming, sob-inducing novel – with characters you’ll come to know and love – from no. Her debut novel Never Greener was chosen as WHSmith Fiction Book of the Year 2018, was nominated for Debut of the Year at the British Book Awards, was a Zoe Ball Book Club pick, and was a Sunday Times bestseller for fifteen weeks, three weeks at number one. A genuine young woman who warms to the whole of Beca’s family, she has a positive affect on all of them. 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.

Told by a series of flashbacks the stories of Grace, Alys, Elin and Beca are revealed, together with a surprise twist at the end. P'haps because I'm Welsh myself I can identify with her characters and the use of certain colloquialisms. In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet up once a week to investigate unsolved murders. 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.PRAISE FOR RUTH JONES'Heartfelt, joyful, brave, utterly compelling' RACHEL JOYCE'I adored it' JOANNA CANNON'Joyful, life-affirming' ADELE PARKS'Beautifully warm and totally absorbing. 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. This heart-warming story about Grama Grace and her descendants is eventful and fraught with misunderstanding. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I fell in love with Grace, Elin, Beca (and Soozi) straight away, but it did take me a long time to warm to Alys.

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. Ruth Jones’ third novel is another warm, heartfelt story, filled with strong and joyful female characters that captures the challenges and joys of relationships and family. Is she strong enough to reach out to her wayward daughter, now seventy years old, and heal the rift? The reader is given windows into the thoughts and experience of each woman, but some of their secrets are only revealed later in the plot.Grace is close to Alys’s own daughter, Elin, but the family rift runs deep, affecting Elin’s marriage and her relationship with her teenage daughter Beca. Like many chic lit books the characters learn all about love; but unlike a lot of books, they experience the bad parts of love as well as the good. Ruth Jones is not afraid to push the emotional buttons, and her writing keeps getting better and better. It is such a well written book, with the characters being fully formed and believable, it had me rooting for the best outcome for them all.
