It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Milly Johnson’s writing because she seems to be able to convey the life events and emotions of real women so brilliantly. I’ve been reading Milly’s books since way before I began blogging. Having met Milly on numerous occasions, I’m also a huge fan of her as a warm-hearted, funny, kind and talented person. As a result, I couldn’t be more excited to help share the news about Milly’s twentieth book, Together Again.
Before I do tell you about Together Again, here are other Linda’s Book Bag posts where Milly’s writing has appeared:
I’ve a review of The Woman in the Middle here
I’ve a review of I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day here
My review of The Magnificent Mrs Mayhew is here.
Milly was kind enough to write a piece for Linda’s Book Bag when The Mother of All Christmases was released in a post available here.
I have my review of another of Milly’s books, The Perfectly Imperfect Woman, here.
However, today is all about Together Again so let’s find out more:
Sisters, Jolene, Marsha and Annis have convened at their childhood home the huge and beautiful Fox House following the death of their mother, the cold and impenetrable Eleanor Vamplew, to arrange the funeral and sell up. Born seven years apart, the women have never bonded and are more strangers than sisters.
Jolene, the eldest, is a successful romantic novelist who writes templates of beautiful relationships even though her marriage to the handsome and charming Warren is a barren wasteland.
Marsha, the neglected middle child has put every bit of her energy into her work hoping money would plug up the massive gap in her life left by the man who broke her young heart, only to find it never has. And now he has been forced back into her life.
Annis is the renegade, who left home aged sixteen and never returned, not even for the death of their beloved father Julian, until now. It is therefore a surprise to all of them to discover that Eleanor recently changed her will to leave everything to the daughter she considered a wretched accident.
Together, Again is the story of truths uncovered and lies exposed, of secrets told – and kept. It is a novel about sister helping sister to heal from childhood scars, and of finding, in each other, the love they have all been deprived of. Together, Again is about vulnerability and strength, acceptance and family.
Published by Simon and Schuster on 29th September, Together Again is available for pre-order through the links here.
