Silver Salt by Elanor Dymott
Part family saga, part mystery, partly none of the above. I picked this out pretty much at random not really expecting much of it but really enjoyed it. We follow the family of Ruthie from London to a mansion in Kent, to her mother’s home in the South of France, to the Greek villa her father builds for them. We watch the family come together and fall apart. The story goes back and forth in time and place, jumping between characters, and it all works together. Very well written, especially the ending which you know is coming but can’t quite figure out how or why until it is suddenly clear. An author I’ll be looking out for again.
