LoveReading Says

LoveReading Says

A big, bold, and beautiful tale that also whispers and slides through the secrets and heartbreak of three women. After a tragic incident in her early twenties, pregnant Delph withdrew into herself and found a form of safety in a new relationship. Now, as her daughter Roche moves in with Delph’s estranged mother Moon, all three begin to examine their lives. Eva Verde is an author I knew I wanted to follow after reading her intoxicating debut Lives Like Mine . The main character Monica was an unforgettable narrator, the story sat as a particular favourite of mine and was chosen as one of our LoveReading Star Books. In Bloom has a different focus, and yet the power of the storytelling shines like a beacon in both. Here we walk with three women from the same family and see how their lives have been affected by relationships. This is a novel that is as modern and contemporary as can be and yet there is a feeling that these issues have always spun on the wheel of time. The main tale sits slap bang in the here and now of 2023, and then reaches as far as 1968 as the spotlight shines on different stages in their lives. The sequences that take a step back allow understanding to grow, Eva Bloom always encourages thought and contemplation rather than judgement. I love how compassionate and thoughtful she is as she injects life, loss, grief, love, and joy into the lives of these three women. A core steely strength slips through the pages, remaining ever present and I adored the battle-cry of an ending! In Bloom sings of the strength of women as life unfolds, it has been awarded a LoveReading Star Book and chosen as a Liz Pick of the Month.
