Description

Love Untold tells the stories of four generations of women, mothers and daughters set in South Wales. I must be very careful about spoilers in this delicious novel revolving around this family so full of resentment, long-held anger, prodigal daughters, and cold-water swimming. The thread which binds together mothers and daughters throughout their lives is awesomely strong; motherhood forges links of steel across generations, as I’ve seen myself since our own daughter gave birth to her first child - a girl. 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.

The book starts with Elin, a headteacher, who is organising a surprise 90th birthday party for her grandmother who brought her up when her mother was unable to, despite her grandmother having said that she didn’t want a party. Each character was realistic and I have fallen in love with Grace , she is such a strong woman and as a Welsh woman myself , I see a lot of my own grandmothers in her. 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. Grace is eighty-nine, she’s proud and independent and enjoys an early morning swim in the sea, no matter what the weather.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 fell in love with Grace, Elin, Beca (and Soozi) straight away, but it did take me a long time to warm to Alys.

THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER***'Love, mess, secrets; this story of four generations of women is filled with Ruth Jones's warmth and wisdom.

It is a joy-filled, life-affirming, sob-inducing novel - with characters you'll come to know and love - from no. 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.

The time she looses her cool is with her academic mum which she is the opposite like the rest of the family it seems.

She’s determined that Grace’s big day will be celebrated, her own daughter, Becca is slightly mortified by her mother’s quest to party, much preferring to spend quality time with her great grandmother. Love, mess, secrets; this story of four generations of women is shot through with Ruth Jones's warmth and wisdom. The novel is set in Jones’s beloved Wales, and scattered with Welsh terms of endearment, which adds to the sensation of reading it wrapped in a comfort blanket. This book has my heart and I plan to keep it to re read when I need reminding of how important our family is. 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.
