Grace has what one might call a ‘full and interesting life’ which is code for not married and has no kids. Her life is the envy of her friends, who assume she doesn’t want that kind of commitment. But all this time she has been waiting in secret for a love that will take her breath away, like the way a wave in a rough sea knocks you over…
When Grace meets a beautiful woman at a party, she falls suddenly and desperately in love. At the same party, lawyer Annie finds the man of her dreams – the only man she’s ever met whose table manners are up to her mother’s standards. And across the city, Violet, who is mostly afraid of everything, is making another discovery of her own: that for the first time in her life she has fallen for another girl.
A Love Story for Bewildered Girls is a hilarious and heart-warming tale of female friendship and first love in all its guises – a novel to remind us that whatever we think our happy ending should be, life can have other, sometimes far better, plans
The story overall is interesting and the way Emma takes us through each character’s mind is written in a phenomenal way. All the characters are interesting in different ways. To get inside each characters head and understand their thought process. These characters are different yet relatable. The book changes character perspective throughout and this is perfectly executed and labelled accordingly so that you don’t end up being lost whilst reading. This book addresses sensitive issues but the author manages to address them in a sensitive and sensible manner. This is a debut novel and from this book I’d definitely read other books from the author, her writing is amazing.
The story addresses love in a way that is not as simple as we might expect it to be. The way the story/plot twist unravelled was just amazing.
That is it for today’s review, I’d highly recommend this book if you are in need of a quick read full of humour and diverse characters.
Thank you Penguin Random House for sending me a copy.
