What a sweeping epic tale! I’m not sure I’ve read a book of this magnitude in years. It was one that I couldn’t put down and didn’t want it to end at the same time. I can’t wait to gift a copy to my mom for Christmas I really think she will fall in love with this book as much as I did. It is a historical tale and I love reading them in winter, I don’t know why but I do. This book is told between two timelines 1925 and 1936. You have family bonds being tested, secrets building and tearing apart, Love and hard choices to make. All the makings for a great book. If you love bittersweet love stories, and/or historical fiction than you might want to take a look at The Glittering Hour!
About the Book:
An unforgettable historical about true love found and lost and the secrets we keep from one another from an award-winning author
Selina Lennox is a Bright Young Thing. Her life is a whirl of parties and drinking, pursued by the press and staying on just the right side of scandal, all while running from the life her parents would choose for her.
Lawrence Weston is a penniless painter who stumbles into Selina’s orbit one night and can never let her go even while knowing someone of her stature could never end up with someone of his. Except Selina falls hard for Lawrence, envisioning a life of true happiness. But when tragedy strikes, Selina finds herself choosing what’s safe over what’s right.
Spanning two decades and a seismic shift in British history as World War II approaches, Iona Grey’s The Glittering Hour is an epic novel of passion, heartache and loss.
