Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 20/7/20

The world seems to be two steps forward, three steps back at the moment with everything going on. In topsy turvy times, what can we do but read?

The Sister’s Gift by Barbara Hannay (available 4th August)
arrived thanks to Penguin. Freya and Pearl were close once, but a gift resulted in a dramatic change to the family dynamics. Freya’s niece Billie offers sanctuary to her after she hits rock bottom. All three women have regrets and secrets, but will life on an island help them to heal?

The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver is about Lydia and Freddie. Never thought of alone, the pair plan on being together forever. But fate intervenes and Lydia has to face life alone – or does she?

If I Had Your Face by Frances Cha is set in Seoul and follows four young women. Kyuri has made a mistake at work. Miho is mixing with the super-elite of Korea in New York after she receives a scholarship. Wonna is pregnant but worries about how she and her husband will afford to raise a child. Ara is mad for a K-pop star.

  1. I’m curious about How to Argue with a Racist. It seems like a pointless and futile thing to do. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
