About this deal

I love Graham Norton's writing and I would have read it in one sitting if I could, but I needed some sleep in between. I had a couple of “eye roll” moments with this book, and I noticed several detail oversights, but this was an excellent read for me. And when Elizabeth finds she has been left a seaside cottage in the will, the quest into the truth of her origins begins. He is visiting his gay father, Elliot in California, a man he has seen little of since his parents acrimonious split.

A compelling and moving story, expertly told, that will draw you in and keep you in its grip until the last page. When it comes to relationships, there is not much in the way of cheering fare, with disappointment, intrigue, darkness, and stoicism from two different eras.This is a hugely compelling family drama, of mothers whose children are everything, and of the darkness, heartbreak, intrigue, mental health issues and secrets that bubble within the facade of families, past and present. While staying at her mother's home, Elizabeth is informed there's a codicil to her mother's will and also finds letters from her father that he wrote to her mother almost 40 years ago.

She has very little there, unpleasant memories, items of small value, but all that changes when she finds a small stash of letters telling a story that she was never told. It is not tense or a thriller by any means, but it does hold a great deal of dark mystery and sadness.

The next chapter is the "Now" and we meet a young single mom who has just learned her mom has passed.
