Family For Beginners, Sarah Morgan

Family For Beginners, Sarah Morgan

Family For Beginners: the brand new summer read from the Top 5 Sunday Times bestseller Sarah Morgan! by [Morgan, Sarah]

Genre: General Fiction (Adult), Romance

I’ve read and enjoyed several of Sarah’s books, her writing style matches what I want to read. She doesn’t just do a romance, but a story that has lots of sub plots, plenty of other things going on, and characters that feel so real. That’s what I want to read, real lives but with good things in. A story that has more than just A meets B and they have a few drama and lived HEA.

I loved Flora, such a hard life she’d had and of course we are what life shapes us. Flora has become one of life’s Pleasers, hates conflict and always tries to help, subjugating her own needs to make others happy. I hate conflict too, and I recognise facts of Flora in my own character, and understood her actions.
Jack, ahhh Jack. What a wonderful guy, loved his family, tries so hard after the unexpected death of his wife, and yet he’s a bloke and of course they see events and things differently. I so felt for Flora when she felt “outside” the family, and yet I understood too why Jack couldn’t see what his actions were doing.
The kids too, poor confused Izzie, teen years are tough but add in a dead mum, a grieving little sister, and a dad who seems to be getting close to his new girlfriend, and no wonder she was obnoxious at times. Molly, her little sister, was a real gem and provided some fantastic light when it was needed.

Of course there’s more to the story than we first know, slowly secrets come out and have repercussions. A little ripple turned into some pretty big waves.
I enjoyed the story and the pacing, the way what seemed clear kept changing as more things were revealed. I enjoyed Clare and the family in the Lake district too, some fabulous summer days played out there.

Stars: Five, another wonderful read from Sarah, with real people and plots, to make a story that’s totally absorbing.
