Welcome to my review of The Glittering Art of Falling Apart by Ilana Fox.
1980s Soho is electric. For Eliza, the heady pull of its nightclubs and free-spirited people leads her into the life she has craved - all glamour, late nights and excitement. But it comes at a heavy cost. Cassie is fascinated by her family's history and the abandoned Beaufont Hall. Why won't her mother talk about it? Offered the chance to restore Beaufont to its former glory, Cassie jumps at the opportunity to learn more about her past. Separated by a generation, but linked by a forgotten diary, these two women have more in common than they know ...
WHAT I SAY:
I know that I'm going to struggle to find words to express how beautiful this book is so I'm not going to try. The Glittering Art of Falling Apart is just so haunting and fantastically written. I know I will be thinking about the Tempest family for a long time to come. If you read this book, make sure you have tissues handy. You will need them!
Thanks to Elaine Egan for sending me an e-copy in exchange for my honest review.
