Thank you to Emma at Damppebbles for giving me the chance to review Mrs Narwhals Diary by S J Norbury.
“It was Woman’s Hour who suggested I keep a diary. They said it was good for mental health, and I must say I did feel much less frazzled after writing everything down yesterday. The frustrations were all still there, but somehow smoothed out – as if by a really good steam iron.”Mrs Narwhal is overwhelmed. Her husband, Hugh, is unkind and unhappy – working every hour at a job he hates to save the ancestral home he never wanted. Then there’s Hugh’s sister, Rose, who’s spurned her one true love, and ricochets from drama to drama; not to mention two small boys to bring up safely in a house that could crumble around their ears at any moment…When Hugh’s pride receives a fatal blow, and he walks out, Mrs Narwhal is plunged into a crisis of both heart and home. With help from Rose she sets out to save the house her husband couldn’t. But now that Hugh’s gone, the question must be faced: does Mrs Narwhal really want him back? Funny, charming, and moving, Mrs Narwhal’s Diary is an irresistible story which will enchant and delight its readers. S J Norbury lives in Herefordshire with her family. Mrs Narwhal’s Diary is her first novel.
I absolutely loved this book. It had me so gripped from the start that I had trouble putting it down. It was a wonderful story about the quirky Narwhals. It had plenty of humourous moments with regards to the family and how it was told through the diary. It was an excellent and enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more from S J Norbury.
