Charity Norman has written five books, I've now read all of them and enjoyed every one. Freeing Grace was her debut novel.
"Grace's teenage mother dies shortly after giving birth and the perfect adoptive parents are found for her. Until, that is, Matt, Grace's shell-shocked young father, falls in love with his daughter and decides to keep her. A thought provoking story exploring the sacrifices we make for family and what it takes to be a good parent."
This book wasn't what I expected it to be. After reading the blurb I was anticipating a tug-of-war story over a baby, however, this tale was so much more. Back stories of several characters are explored as are family dynamics, and the story twists and turns throughout the pages.
I think the characters were well developed, though not always likeable, and I was kept guessing right to the end.
I'm thrilled to discover that a new book by Charity Norman is due out next year, I'm a big fan and would definitely recommend all her books.
I've read a couple of Charity Norman books and really enjoyed them. I always look for them in second hand shops but people must hang on to them because i never seem to come across any. I'll have to remember to look out for this one and the new one next year.ReplyDelete
I don't think I've found any of her books in charity shops either. See You in September is my favourite of hers, but I've really enjoyed them all.Delete
