Every Happy Family

Durata: 8h 40m

A hilarious drama about family secrets, perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty. ‘[A] gripping family tale… Stovell is a thoughtful, wise and witty writer’ Daily Mail A hilarious drama about family secrets, perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty. ‘[A] gripping family tale… Stovell is a thoughtful, wise and witty writer’ Daily Mail Minnie and Bert are over the moon to have their three grown-up children home for the first time in a decade. But having Lizzie, Jess, Owen and the grandchildren under one roof isn’t without its dramas. Lizzie is off the alcohol (although emergency gin doesn’t count), Jess is juggling a toddler and a newborn, but it’s Owen who has the power to throw a grenade into everything. It all stems from an incident that happened years ago. And it involves Nora Skelly – a name you don't mention in front of Minnie. With Nora also back in town, the past is about to come crashing into the present. And what better time to revisit old secrets and resentments than around the family dinner table? * * * What readers are saying about Every Happy Family ‘If you love Liane Moriarty then this is a great book for you…I couldn't stop turning the pages and finished the story in 24 hours.’ Netgalley reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘What a fabulous family drama this was.
