    I normally compose my reviews right after finishing a book but after finishing The Glittering Hour I had to wait I had to compose myself first So with tears still in my eyes, I would like to share how deeply this book moved me First of all, it completely transports the reader to both timelines in 1925 when we meet free spirited Selina and then in 1936 when we meet her da

    The Glittering Hour, is a story with a dual timeline, it flows seamlessly between 1925 and 1936 In 1925 the war is over, Selina is a member of the Bright Young People she spends her time going to parties, staying up late, drinking way too much, going on silly treasure hunts with her friends and she s footloose and fancy free Really, Selina is very insecure due to her strict upbringing,

    I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this new novel for four years, after devouring Iona Grey s brilliant, award winning debut novel Letters to the Lost I was very excited at being chosen to review this novel which totally blew me away and exceeded all of my expectations.This new novel is set in the intervening years between the two world wars and mainly at the family country house Blackw

    Visit the locations in the novelSometimes there comes a novel that moves you so much that you have to write your review just to get your emotions out A book that moves you so much that you have to stop blubbering long enough so you can write your thoughts down A love story so exquisitely drawn that you finish the book and start to feel like you ve been in it with them and now feel bereft that they ve gone.The Glittering H

    Although the title of the book is The Glittering Hour, it s the glittering few hours I spent reading this book that is uppermost in my mind at the moment.Events unfold over the course of a decade with the story alternating between 1936, as nine year old Alice embarks on a treasure hunt of a kind to uncover the secrets of her mother s past, and 1925 in which Selina recalls her heady days as one of the Bright Young People and the ch
