The Oven House by Lynne Rees

..she feels raw, like burnt skin, like nails broken below the quick, the breath in her throat as sharp as razors, though she has no right to feel any of this, as she is the one burning and breaking and cutting up the life they have shared for ten years.

This is basically the story of a married woman, who falls in love with another man, and enters a passionate affair with him. And yet, it’s much more than that – it explores many aspects of love, of loss, and of eventual healing. It’s also beautifully written, as Lynne takes us deep into Breeze’s life, and lays open her varying emotions. It’s a book to get lost in, and this is an author to look out for!

    I have just read this on holiday and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was sensitively written by Lynne and look forward to more.
