Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Glittering Hour, a historical British fiction read! I’m going to change up my usual blog tour format and start with a little background on Iona Grey!
About the Author:
IONA GREY is the author of the award winning Letters to the Lost. She has a degree in English Literature and Language from Manchester University, an obsession with history and an enduring fascination with the lives of women in the twentieth century. She lives in rural Cheshire with her husband and three daughters.
About the Book:
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.
If you’re looking for a historical read that has a treasure hunt, drama, family secrets, and even more secrets, this is the read for you! It is truly an emotionally strong read that some of you may need tissues for. For someone like myself who isn’t the biggest fan of historical fiction, this was such a lovely tale it has left me a little empty since finishing. It is out soon and will be available to buy at these places:
Thank you again to St. Martin’s Press for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour! Now everyone, get to reading!! 🙂

Sounds lovely! I have an earlier book by this author on my shelf (that I really do need to get to), but I’ll add this one to my to-read list as well. 🙂

If your to-read shelf looks anything like mine I’m sure it’ll be awhile before you get to it 😂, but still worth the read nonetheless when you do get to it!!
