I am thrilled to be partnering with St. Martin’s Press to bring you my stop on the Blog Tour for The Glittering Hour by Iona Grey. I am excited to offer you a giveaway of a finished Hardcover of the Glittering Hour generously provided by St. Martin’s Press.
An unforgettable historical about true love found and lost and the secrets we keep from one another from an award-winning author
Selina Lennox is a Bright Young Thing. Her life is a whirl of parties and drinking, pursued by the press and staying on just the right side of scandal, all while running from the life her parents would choose for her.
Lawrence Weston is a penniless painter who stumbles into Selina’s orbit one night and can never let her go even while knowing someone of her stature could never end up with someone of his. Except Selina falls hard for Lawrence, envisioning a life of true happiness. But when tragedy strikes, Selina finds herself choosing what’s safe over what’s right.
Spanning two decades and a seismic shift in British history as World War II approaches, Iona Grey’s The Glittering Hour is an epic novel of passion, heartache and loss.
The Glittering Hour by Iona Grey is an incredible historical fiction novel set in England.
The time frame spans well over two decades and is set in the Era of World War 2.
The author expertly crafts a time frame that consists of two different time frames , the past and the present which left me happily putting pieces of the story together.
The characters are complex, complicated and well fleshed out. Trust me, they will break your heart at times, as they did mine.
I really enjoyed the relationships in this novel and how they played out. Choices were made by some that ended up in situations that were truly heart breaking.
The author does a fantastic job of keeping the reader guessing. There are definite twists and quite a few surprises that I never saw coming.
Such a well written gem, I highly recommend this novel.

“Afflicted with a chronic debilitating condition, Suzette Jensen knew having children would wreak havoc on her already fragile body. Nevertheless, she brought Hanna into the world, pleased and proud to start a family with her husband Alex. Estranged from her own mother, Suzette is determined to raise her beautiful daughter with the love, care, and support she was denied.
But Hanna proves to be a difficult child. Now seven-years-old, she has yet to utter a word, despite being able to read and write. Defiant and anti-social, she refuses to behave in kindergarten classes, forcing Suzette to homeschool her. Resentful of her mother’s rules and attentions, Hanna lashes out in anger, becoming more aggressive every day. The only time Hanna is truly happy is when she’s with her father. To Alex, she’s willful and precocious but otherwise the perfect little girl, doing what she’s told.
Suzette knows her clever and manipulative daughter doesn’t love her. She can see the hatred and jealousy in her eyes. And as Hanna’s subtle acts of cruelty threaten to tear her and Alex apart, Suzette fears her very life may be in grave danger…”
