The Glittering Art of Falling Apart...


1980s Soho is electric. For Eliza, the heady pull of its nightclubs and free-spirited people leads her into the life she has craved - all glamour, late nights and excitement. But it comes at a heavy cost.
Cassie is fascinated by her family's history and the abandoned Beaufont Hall. Why won't her mother talk about it? Offered the chance to restore Beaufont to its former glory, Cassie jumps at the opportunity to learn more about her past.
Separated by a generation, but linked by a forgotten diary, these two women have more in common than they know . . .
Every now and again you read a book that you really struggle to get into. Maybe you don’t like the characters or you just don’t like the plot and you decide to give up.
I almost did that with Ilana Fox's The Glittering Art of Falling Apart. I found it a little slow to start and it just wasn’t grabbing my attention. But not one to give up I decided to plough on – and I am so glad I did.
From not wanting to read it to suddenly not wanting to put it down – this book is brilliant. The characters are great and the ending? Yeah, you won’t see it coming at all.
A beautiful, romantic, enchanting story - it’s 100% worth persevering with.
