Excluding non-fiction and short stories, my reading in the last six months has been exclusively by women writing in the darker genres. There have been some belters but my favourite, thus far, is the novel Home by Rebekah Lattin-Rawstrone.
In my view, to review a book is to spoil it somewhat, so what’s the absolute minimum you need to know that will encourage you to read this book?
• It’s honest
• It’s dark
• It’s exquisitely observed
• It’s understated
• It’s intelligent
• It’s uncompromising
• It’s a page-turner
I hope none of this has ruined the story for you.
Once you’ve read Home, I hope you’ll leave a comment here or review the book prominently and spread the word.
That word, by the way, is: brilliant.
