Happy Easter

Another family saga from Adèle Geras: A Hidden Life. Rich Constance upsets her relations by secretly changing her will shortly before she dies. She successfully sets out to cause trouble and the fallout affects everyone in the family. I enjoyed this but didn't warm to the characters. The most interesting part of the story is what disinherited Lou finds out about her grandfather, who was in a Japanese prisoner of war camp as a child. I finished this and another Robert Goddard in double quick time and will now start the treat I have been saving for a cold, miserable Easter: The Miracle at Speedy Motors by Alexander McCall Smith. I’m also of course looking forward to this .
