It's not a life, it's an adventure! Lizzie is fast approaching 50. Her once angst ridden teenage daughters, now grown and in their twenties, have flown the nest, Cassie to London and Maisy to Australia. And, although Connor, Lizzie's sulky, surly teenage son, is now on his own tormented passage to adulthood, his quest to get there, for the most part, is a far quieter journey than that of his sisters. The hard years, Lizzie believes, are behind her. Only, things are never quite as black and white as they seem... A visit to her daughter in London leaves Lizzie troubled. And that is just the start. Add to that an unexpected visitor, a disturbing phone call, a son acting suspiciously, a run in with her ex husband plus a new man in her life who quite simply takes her breath away; Lizzie quickly realises life is something that happens while plans are being made. Gritty but tender, thought provoking but light-hearted, dark but brilliantly funny, this is a story of contemporary family life in all its 21st century glory. A story of mothers and sons, of fathers and daughters, of brothers and sisters, and friends. A tale of love and loss, of friendships and betrayals, and coming of age. Nobody said it would be easy and as Lizzie knows only too well, life is never straightforward when you see all the colours in between.

My Thoughts

I absolutely loved 183 times a year, and was so looking forward to the next book, once I realised there was going to be one. So I have been on tender hooks since.

Reading the blurb, I was pulled in straight away and wanting to find out more in-depth on the mechanics of what was going on in this modern day family, how they were going to move on from the last pages of 183,  
I was soon pulled in and really felt for Lizzie, just when she feels empty nest, but hope for having some time to herself and what this means for her...well... reading this really was an adventure. 

Eva Jordan, cleverly wrote from various points of view, ages, genders and had a brilliant family life line running through the story, which I do not want to give away.

All The Colours In Between is full of joy, sadness, fractious relationships and shows modern family in a very different light. With such amazing characters, heartfelt issues for them, and portrayed so life like. I could feel that I was there with them. 

So I suggest you click the link and purchase to follow Lizzie and her family, on yet another life lesson or two and adventures. There is plenty to keep you absorbed, but in such a wonderful way that you want to curl up and read in one sitting.

You will be frustrated, laugh, cry and feel part of this quirky, nutty, but amazing family. 

 

Author Information

Eva Jordan, born in Kent but living most of her life in a small Cambridgeshire town, describes herself as a lover of words, books, travel and chocolate. She is also partial to the odd glass or two of wine. Providing her with some of the inspiration for her novels, Eva is both a mum and step mum to four grown-up children. Her career has been varied including working within the library service and at a women's refuge. She writes a monthly column for a local magazine and currently works as a volunteer for a charity based organisation that teaches adults to read. However, storytelling through the art of writing is her passion. All The Colours In Between is Eva's second novel
