As a fan of Jane Green, I’m delighted to see that she is releasing a new book in September called ‘Saving Grace’
The story of ‘Saving Grace’ is –
Grace Chapman has the perfect life, living comfortably with her husband, bestselling author Ted, in a picture-perfect farmhouse on the Hudson River in New York State.
Then Ted advertises for a new assistant, and Beth walks into their lives. Organized, passionate and eager to learn, Beth quickly makes herself indispensable to Ted and his family. But Grace soon begins to feel side-lined in her home – and her marriage – by this ambitious younger woman.
Is Grace just paranoid, as her husband tells her, or is there more to Beth than first thought?
Loving the sound of this book particularly the dark element to it.
You can pre-order Saving Grace from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 25th September 2014.
Fans of Lulu Taylor will be delighted to hear that she will be returning to our bookshelves in 2014, with her latest book ‘The Winter Folly’.
The story of ‘The Winter Folly’ is –
In this house there are many secrets… It is 1960 and young Alexandra Crewe is obedient enough to marry the man her father has selected for her, but both she and her husband Laurence quickly realise that their marriage is a disaster. When real love comes to her, plucking her out of her old life and into a wonderful new existence, she is powerless to resist. Her home is now a beautiful Dorset castle, but there has been a price to pay and she fears that her punishment will one day be due. When tragedy strikes, it seems that it has come, and there is only one way she can atone for her sins… In the present day, Delilah Young is the second wife of John Stirling and the new chatelaine of Fort Stirling. The house is a sad one and Delilah hopes to fill it with life and happiness. But when she attempts to heal the wounds in John’s life, it seems that the forces of the past might be too strong for her. Why does John have such a hatred for the old folly on the hill, and what happened to his mother when she vanished from his life? As she searches for the truth, Delilah realises that perhaps some secrets are better left buried . . .
As a fan of Lulu’s, I am looking forward to ‘The Winter Folly’ which does sound a bit different and darker to her previous books which were all set against the glamour and secrecy of high society. Definitely one to look out for.
You can pre-order The Winter Folly from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 2nd January 2014.
