dinner parties they once had before Dad left and how I used to peek through the bannister when I was supposed to be sleeping and watch the guests and how in the morning I would bombard her with uestions about them who was married to whom who did what for a living who came from where and had how many siblings And I used to think this story of hers was true I used to think I was born for my

own lives and history itselfMY THOUGHTS It always intrigues me when people work together to produce a novel I always wonder who wrote what or if they all sit around a table and thrash it out Mostly it seems to work occasionally it doesn t but The Glass Ocean is definitely a success story Reminiscent of the writing of Fiona Davis The Glass Ocean flows seamlessly from one character s story to the next from one time period to the next and back again The writing is rich in detail The three women at the centre of this story have hidden depths their strengths brought to the fore in adversity Throw into this mix seduction subterfuge Spies false identities forgery romance and infidelity and you have all the ingredients of a block buster of a novel The three narrators did a wonderful job THE
