What is it like to be the mother-in- law and The Daughter-in-Law by Fanny Blake

When I see the name Fanny Blake on a book’s cover, I know that the book is one that I will want to read. Ms. Blake tells involving stories about people with whom I enjoy spending time. That is definitely the case here.

This is a novel about family and about relationships. It is also about the choices that people make and the consequences that arise as a result.

The cast of characters includes Hope who is divorced, a mother, grandmother, cold water swimmer and owner of a cooking company that is cleverly called Booking the Cooks. She has a son Paul, a woodworker, and generally low key kind of guy. He is married to the rather high strung, career oriented Edie. They have two young children.

Both Edie and Hope have things from their pasts arise. No spoilers so readers will have to find out on their own.

Hope and Edie have a relationship that can be tenuous at times. Will they find a way to better understand one another?

Those who enjoy women’s fiction and good stories will want to give this title a look. It is excellent on family relationships and dynamics.

Many thanks to Simon and Schuster UK for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
