Description

Love Untold tells the stories of four generations of women, mothers and daughters set in South Wales. Thoughtful hug in a box care packages and gifts for every occasion, hand packed, beautifully gift wrapped and delivered directly to their door. It is such a well written book, with the characters being fully formed and believable, it had me rooting for the best outcome for them all. The prime and proper headteacher whose daughter fails all but two exams and a husband who runs to play hippie.

Ruth Jones is not afraid to push the emotional buttons, and her writing keeps getting better and better.

Grace is fast approaching her 90th birthday; the only thing on her mind is a reunion with Alys, the daughter she hasn’t seen for 30 years. She just wants a quiet celebration: her daily swim in the sea and a cup of tea with granddaughter Elin and great-granddaughter Beca.

Finally, Beca, sixteen years old, artistic and musical but not good at lessons, constantly at odds with perfectionist Elin who sees education as a gateway to the world, she knows she is about to fail all her GCSEs and disappoint her mother, again. I cried and I laughed and now there’s a hole in my life where Grace and her dysfunctional family used to be.

The book starts with Elin, a headteacher, who is organising a surprise 90th birthday party for her grandmother who brought her up when her mother was unable to, despite her grandmother having said that she didn’t want a party. But Grace’s granddaughter, Elin, is also estranged from Alys and any reconciliation will cause huge problems in the family. Meanwhile Grace’s great-grand-daughter Beca is oblivious to all these worries, too busy navigating the highs and lows of teenage life and keeping secrets of her own. It is a joy-filled, life-affirming, sob-inducing novel - with characters you'll come to know and love - from no. Ruth Jones is best known for her outstanding and award-winning television writing, most notably BBC One's Gavin and Stacey , which she co-wrote with James Corden and in which she played the incorrigible Nessa Jenkins.What a wonderful, heart-warming, beautifully emotional story by Ruth Jones of 4 generations, trying to navigate their own lives and their relationships with others and each other. The 2019 Christmas Day special of Gavin and Stacey gained national critical acclaim, drawing an audience of over 18 million, winning a BAFTA for TV moment of the year and a National Television Award for Impact. A genuine young woman who warms to the whole of Beca’s family, she has a positive affect on all of them. Everyone thinks they know the truth, but they are all keeping secrets, will Grace's party be a joyous reunion or a day of tears and recriminations? Ruth’s second novel, Us Three, was an instant Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and paperback and has sold almost a quarter of a million copies.
