Samantha Smyth’s Modern Family Journal – Lucy Cavendish

This is a lovely lightweight novel lent to me on holiday (when the book group book was too heavy going). Its a story of how to hold together a young family ok the face of death, old love and community tensions.

Samantha is a wonderfully flawed character, doing the best she can in often hilarious circumstances, and the images that Cavendish describes are vivid. Whilst this isn’t a challenging book it is a particularly good example of “chick   lit”.
