Tuesday Titles 090..

The Butterfly Summer - Harriet Evans
Well, the Bank Holiday weekend might have been the rain-fest that Britain has come to expect, but it gave me the chance to catch up on a lot of reading, which is never a bad thing. 

Nina's life wasn't quite going as she'd planned it might. Married young, and divorced by the time she was 23 (much to the delight of her mother-in-law) and she feels a little lost. Perhaps she always has. Nina's father died when she was only 6 months old and her upbringing wasn't what one would call normal. But then again, whose is?

The book slips back and forth in time between Nina's story and that of her grandmother, Teddy. As more family secrets are revealed, more of the strange things which have happened to Nina are explained and things begin to make sense for her. Suddenly, she has a purpose: to find out the secrets her father's family have been hiding from her for so long, and what she stands to inherit on her 26th birthday.

Intriguing and full of twists and turns, I initially found this a little tough to get into, but a few chapters i and I was hooked. 

Released on 19th May, I'd definitely recommend this one.
