Let me take you on a walk through some thought provoking, illuminative, emotionally aware, relationship stories. One may help you to “see the light”, one to heal, and another to lift …
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
Friendship, love, trust, 21st century families, adultery, domestic violence, single parenting, bullying, rape and rebuilding … this one will probably be enlightening.
The Break by Marian Keyes
Fun, love, 21st century family, adultery, trust, abortion, friendship and social media, abandonment, ageing, celebrity culture and shame … this one will be uplifting.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Brooding, atmospheric, raw, brutal love, enduring, malice, all-consuming passion … this will be healing.
Recommendations from Ella Berthoud and Susan Elderkin of The Novel Cure include Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, As It Is In Heaven by Niall Williams, Requiem for a Dream by Hubert Shelby Jr and High Fidelity by Nick Hornby.
