Review: Relativity

Relativity Relativity by Antonia Hayes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Who would know that physics and astronomy could be so interesting.
When I first received this book from the publishers I just wasn't sure.
But I read every book that is sent to me (eventually) so started this one with less enthusiasm as needed.

I have been shockingly surprised how much I loved this. It's so well written and has some really heart turning and heart skipping moments.

Definitely one to be considered
Take a second look, then buy it.

‘An affecting, gripping debut novel about the nature of family and identity’
Mail on Sunday
Ethan is an exceptionally gifted young boy, obsessed with physics and astronomy.
His single mother Claire is fiercely protective of her brilliant, vulnerable son. But she can’t shield him forever from learning the truth about what happened to him when he was a baby; why Mark had to leave them all those years ago.
Now age twelve, Ethan is increasingly curious about his past, especially his father’s absence in his life. When he intercepts a letter to Claire from Mark, he opens a lifetime of feelings that, like gravity, will pull the three together again.
Relativity is a tender and triumphant story about unbreakable bonds, irreversible acts, and testing the limits of love and forgiveness.
Antonia Hayes, who grew up in Sydney and spent her twenties in Paris, currently lives in London with her husband and son. Relativity is her first novel.
