A Year of Marvellous Ways: The Richard and Judy Bestseller
By Sarah Winman
The much anticipated and utterly beguiling new novel from Sarah Winman, author of the international bestseller WHEN GOD WAS A RABBITTweet
Beautifully written, enchanting, engaging, heartwarming and human. An absolute gem of a novel with a lovely old lady as the main protagonist but in the most unexpected ways. Absolutely loved this book.
Beautifully written, complex rather than complicated. A story of lost loves, caring relationships and dreams! Thoroughly recommended for a quiet winter's evening!
I loved this book so much that I've since bought it for two other people - definitely something that I wouldn't normally do.
The characters and the language are delightful - there is a part earlier on where some scenes (and some swearing) are more difficult to read because of the nature of the content, but this provides an ideal balance to the beauty of the novel in later chapters.
Quite a quick read.
