Never Mind Miss Fox by Olivia Glazebrook

Lovereading view...

Miss Fox is Eliza’s new piano teacher. Eliza is Martha and Clive’s daughter. Clive and Miss Fox have a history which Clive is determined his family must not know about. Flashback to when they were all teenagers and we, the reader, are told the secret. When it all breaks into their present lives the repercussions are devastating. It is a simple tale but the jumping back and forth between the present tense and the past demands your concentration.

If you like Olivia Glazebrook you might also like to read books by Araminta Hall, Maggie O’Farrell and Leane Moriarty.


Never Mind Miss Fox by Olivia Glazebrook

Their marriage appears serene and content but when Eliza's adored new piano teacher turns out to be a woman from Clive and Martha's past, the enigmatic Eliot Fox, Clive becomes desperate to keep Eliot - and what she knows - away from his family.

A beautifully composed story about seemingly casual cruelties which turn out to have unforgettable consequences - Image Magazine

An evocative and unsettling read, elegantly written Stylist The dynamics of the small family [are] mined for every gem. The portrayal of Eliza is quite brilliant ... This is a warm and fascinating portrayal of a modern family at a moment of crisis - Daily Express
