From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Jojo Moyes the story of a young woman who finds new meaning in life after opening an eclectic shop and comes to terms with the secrets of her pastIn the sixties Athene Forster was the most glamorous girl of her generation Nicknamed the Last Deb she was also beautiful spoiled and out of control When she agreed to marry the gorgeous young. A bit confusing in my opinion but good once the ending brings everything together The Peacock Emporium reflects Jojo Moyes much earlier work as it was first published 15 years ago Moyes has grown as a writer by leaps and bounds since then but this novel was still an interesting read that alternates timeframes and heroinesMy favorite uote Because that was it loving someone wasn t it The knowledge that if nothing else you wanted them to be happy Audiobook narrated by Elizabeth Sastre Christine Rendel and Fabio Tassone

I did enjoy this eventually it took for me an exceptionally long time to read over a week I found it very slow and it took me ages to feel involved enough in the story to want to read much than a chapter at a time The first few chapters are important as they introduce the reader to the history of the heroine s family background At the time this may seem irrelevant but persevere and read beyond this and it will all click into placeThe protagonist is Suzanna Peacock who with her husband has returned to live in the small country town of her birth An emotionally disturbed young woman she has a lot to come to terms with in her life especially her past and the way her mother though long dead still seems to affect her happiness The only place Suzanna seems to be comfortable with herself is in the Peacock Emporium the shop she opens and it is here we learn the stories of the complex cast of characters that are drawn to the Emporium A series of dramatic events threaten Suzanna s stability but in true chick lit style there is a happy ending

Jojo Moyes ë 5 Read

Le town There she makes perhaps the first real friends of her life including Alejandro a male midwife escaping his own ghosts in ArgentinaThe specter of her mother still haunts Suzanna But only by confronting both her family and her innermost self will she finally reckon with the past and discover that the key to her history and her happiness may have been in front of her all along. JoJo Moyes came onto my radar with her two books about her caretaker role with her handsome intelligent patient in Me Before You and After You I believe half the world okay maybe half the women in the world discovered her with these two phenomenal books and the movie that soon followed This then forces me to pose an unpopular uestion Why release this book Peacock Emporium written in 2004 a very early book for Moyes already released in the UK then NOW in the USDon t get me wrong it s a decent book but clearly not her best just an early try We know she s improved as a writer enormously We love her books in fact we love her Maybe her publisher thought her fans just want her books ALL THE TIME why don t we give them this too Ok I ll buy that but please make sure you put the original 2004 date as when written and 2019 as the US publication Otherwise US fans will be confusedAs far as my review of the book Athene Foster is a spoiled rich girl who loves to have fun and I mean FUN She literally seduces the most eligible money bachelor into marriage She has an affair gasp and produces a daughter Suzanna Peacock who 35 years later opens up The Peacock Emporium a uaint bold and eclectic coffee shop in her original hometown during the 1960 s Gotta shock all Grandmumi s old friends right Most of the book is about Suzanna and her long suffering husband Neil It s worth reading to the end because there it gets better Read it you might like it Opinions are all my ownI thank NetGalley Penguin Books and JoJo Moyes

    I'm sorry but after reading The Last Letter from Your Lover by Jojo Moyes I had high hopes for this book I'm afraid I was disappointed I absolutely could not stand the main character I found her annoying and depressing Through out the entire book all you want to do is meet this main character just so you can tell her to grow up and stop complaining Every time I would finish a chapter I felt like my life was just as crappy's as the main char
