A Parting Glass
$21.99 – $29.99
What a refreshingly different read! The subject matter is very heavy as the author tackles domestic abuse head on, however it is written in such a gentle, childlike way that it could have been written by Enid Blyton. It’s the story of a young girl, Elizabeth, the fourth of five children whose father is a drunken bully. It is not a sad story though. Elizabeth’s spirit and energy are addictive and I could not wait to find out the ending. Poignant and dream like, what a way to tackle such a tough topic!

A deftly crafted and engaging story of hope and transformation, “A Parting Glass” showcases author Tess Banion’s genuine flair for narrative driven storytelling. One of those rare novels that will linger in the mind and memory of the reader long after the book itself has been finished and set back upon the shelf, “A Parting Glass” is unreservedly recommended for personal reading lists and community library Contemporary General Fiction collections.
