Forthcoming Books: The Flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesey

The Flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesey will be published later this month. Margot is a terrific writer, and I suspect this will be a very popular book. Described as a modern take on Jane Eyre, it's set in the 1960s, in Scotland.

I really liked her previous book, The House on Fortune Street, which I reviewed here. I noted then that Jane Eyre was referred to often in the novel, and I wondered if there were parallels that I was missing. I guess it's time for me to read that one . . . (That's right. I confess. I've never read Jane Eyre.)

Anyway. Look for the new Margot Livesey. Coming soon to a bookstore near you.

Hard to put down. Gemma is a fully developed character and her life unravels in interesting ways. It has been compared to Jane Eyre in the modern. I just found this book to be one of the most interesting and enjoyable reads. I was very drawn into her experiences. Drama, romance, adventures, all the reader could want. Hated to end the story.

I could not put this down. Instead of being a preachy little moralist, the heroine is clearly on her own journey of transformation and she does not develop at the expense of others.
