The Best of Times opens with an horrific car crash – told in plain and simple terms – that becomes the central event in our characters’ lives. We’re taken back to discover something of how they lived before the accident and then thrust forward as their lives inexorably change. An interesting premise and full of Vincenzi’s hallmark mix of likeable and awful characters who variously do or don’t get what’s coming to them.
A hot summer's day, a crowded motorway, a split second that changed people's lives forever. Gripping, heartbreaking, exciting and unputdownable, this new novel will be one of 2009's biggest and most enjoyable novels - from the irresistible Penny Vincenzi.
