The story is one that you will not want to put down, believe me I kept saying just one more chapter and off to sleep well I said it all night and finished the book. Oops!!!
This story will grab your attention from the moment you open the book.
The story of Ged and her family, portrays real life dramas and consequences. I am sure everyone that reads this whether young or old will be able to relate to one of the characters. I must say related to Sappho in the since of being a mum and blogging and Instagramming, I don’t do vlogs as I stay behind the camera.
I thoroughly enjoyed every moment in this book all the way to the end, which of course I am not going to spoil for Rachael’s fans and readers.
Whether you are a fan of Rachael’s or a debut reader of hers then you are going to enjoy this book and you will want to read more by her. Rachael’s books get better and better with every new one she releases. Rachael is one of my go to Authors as you are never disappointed.
Also, this would be a great book for book clubs to read as there is so many different topics that you can delve into and see all the opinions that come out about their secrets and their choices.
For a book to keep me up all night and read it deserves a top rating if I could give it more then 5, I would.
I praise Rachael for the brilliant characters and story line that she has written. It is full of twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages.
Ged, Gralice and Sappho have embarked on this journey together, however secrets and betrayal tear them apart rather than bring them together.
Ms Johns writes these flawed characters with such realism that there could always be at least one character per book that is in our family or our circle of friends. They are warm and loving, however nobody is perfect and it makes them more enjoyable and relatable.
The story flows and is completely engaging. I needed to know what was going to happen with these ladies, so I had to keep turning each page.
I look forward to more of Ms Johns work in the future.
I love her books so much and this one didn't disappoint either.
What a great story of 3 1/2 strong (yes 1/2 of one, and if you've read it you'll know why), beautiful, independent women!
Gralice was a women's rights activist back in the day. Paved the way for women's rights!
Sappho was a housewife which kinda went against what Gralice, her mother had taught her growing up.
Ged who was in a committed relationship, or so she thought, is given that chance to be independent for once in her life without a man. Until she goes on the cruise that her Grandmother Gralice made her go on.
Not just Ged's life, but Gralice and Sappho's as well.
So many things happen with some big twists and turns in there.
Of course Rachael made me cry on public transport reading chapter 18! Thanks again!
But seriously I loved this story so much!! I loved the independence of the women, the women's rights, the same sex marriage, the twists and turns, and just really EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!!
It takes you on a journey of love, and loss, and what an emotional journey it is.
Chapter 18 and 40 broke my heart. I know why it had to be written but still!
This is one of those books that grows on you as you read further. It’s hard to talk too much about the characters or even the events in their lives without giving away the plot but rest assured there is plenty of plot to keep you interested and more than enough twists to keep you guessing. As Gralice once told Ged, “... life isn’t black and white. It’s a million shades of grey and there isn’t one truth that fits everyone.” It’s those shades of grey that made this such a special story and ensured that I was thoroughly invested in the lives of Ged and her family by the time the story ended.
Gralice is turning 80 years old, she has always been a career woman, trailer blazer and a single mother.Her daughter Sappho has always been happy as a home maker and is now revelling in the social media realm with a successful housewife vlog. Grand daughter Ged has just broken up with her boyfriend and is a little lost. So it is with great surprise and a little trepidation that the three woman agree to go on an Elvis Tribute cruise after Gralice produces tickets for them.
What can I say, I love Rachael John’s novels. They make laugh, smile and be happy! I enjoyed all these characters and their little quirks. There was a lot of subject matter covered in this book which I don’t want to go into as I think it would give too much of the content away. But I found it very enjoyable while still giving food for thought.
And okay, I admit I had to google ‘Michael Fassbender’.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy to read.
