Details for 'Ghosts' by Dolly Alderton
This is a funny and poignant tale of the challenges facing a young independent woman.
Nina is in her 30s, owns a flat in London and is making her name as a food writer. But her friends are getting married with babies, her father is sinking further into his dementia, and she is battling dating apps.
She thinks she's finally found 'the one' in Max, but things don't turn out as she had hoped, nor how she'd been led to believe.
This was a hypnotising read! First I thought the love story was going to get me down, and the thirty-something lifestyle no longer one I was relating to, but the ups and downs of Nina's story were compelling. Her tender attention to her father in his illness was particularly appealing and enlightening, and the conclusion to her emotional rollercoaster didn't disappoint.
An enjoyable read!
