THE GLITTERING HOUR review & giveaway

An unforgettable historical about true love found and lost and the secrets we keep from one another from an award-winning author

Selina Lennox is a Bright Young Thing. Her life is a whirl of parties and drinking, pursued by the press and staying on just the right side of scandal, all while running from the life her parents would choose for her.

Lawrence Weston is a penniless painter who stumbles into Selina’s orbit one night and can never let her go even while knowing someone of her stature could never end up with someone of his. Except Selina falls hard for Lawrence, envisioning a life of true happiness. But when tragedy strikes, Selina finds herself choosing what’s safe over what’s right.

Spanning two decades and a seismic shift in British history as World War II approaches, Iona Grey’s The Glittering Hour is an epic novel of passion, heartache and loss. (Synopsis from Amazon)

5 Stars

There’s good fiction, which is a nice break; a bit of down time.

Then there’s great fiction, which transports you to another time and place. Great fiction makes you feel deeply and strongly. The characters become like family or friends to you. Great fiction can take you above the clouds and down into the depths. Makes you laugh out loud for numerous reasons (that can be embarrassing depending on where you are) and break your heart, resulting in copious tears (we’re talking ugly crying- equally embarrassing).

THE GLITTERING HOUR is great fiction; dare I say brilliant fiction.

If brilliant fiction is what you desire, look no further than Selina and Lawrence’s tale and prepare to be swept away.
