9780091925888: Part of the Spell

 If only people were more honest about themselves and the people around them. . . Tacita is pretending to ignore her husband’s affair. Stella can’t imagine wanting any more than she has. Theresa is determined to stay so busy, she won’t have time to feel guilty. Zeki hopes no one will find out what he’s up to. Jonathan imagined the family running through the woods in their wellies—not the solitary bottles of whisky on the commuter train. And Sheila, a widower, mother, and grandmother has disappeared. In a small English town, everyone is struggling to be the person they think they should be: casting spells, making justifications, willingly deluded. But sometimes the pressure of being the perfect—or not perfect, just good—wife, husband, lover, mother, or daughter, is overwhelming. Everyone needs to find an outlet. Sometimes it’s easier to be honest with strangers.

About the Author:

Rachel Heath is the author of The Finest Type of English Womanhood.

Review:

"Born and brought up in the Essex market town where she still lives, Stella is content with the everyday satisfactions that marriage and motherhood bring. Only when her own mother goes missing does Stella's sense of herself, and the world she inhabits, shift ... like her central character's life, Rachel Heath's novel has its own quiet pleasures." Sunday Times "Heath's skill is to wind people together, some of them related to one another, others strangers with nothing in common except the place in which they live ... This is a novel about personality, and behaviour - oh, and Saffron Walden. Much is convincing (Saffron Walden entirely so: I feel I know it). The Finest Type of English Womanhood was shortlisted for the Costa first novel award. The second is notoriously hard to pull off, particularly when the first has attracted attention. Part of the Spell goes a good way towards meeting that challenge." Guardian
