Love, Iris

Elizabeth Noble

Tess has a secret - one which is going to turn her life upside down in just nine months' time. The only person she can confide in is her beloved grandmother, Iris, but she is slipping further away each day. Then chance brings a stranger into Tess's life. Gigi's heart goes out to Tess, knowing what it's like to feel alone. She's determined to show her that there's a silver lining to every cloud. As their unlikely friendship blossoms, Tess feels inspired to open up. But something still holds her back - until she discovers Iris has a secret of her own. A suitcase of letters from another time, the missing pieces of a life she never shared . . . Could the letters hold the answers that Tess thought lost for ever?


A beautiful story; a hymn to the relationship between the young, newly-pregnant, panic-stricken Tess and her grandmother, Iris. Iris has a lifetime of experience - but she can’t help her granddaughter now because Iris is descending into advanced dementia and her wisdom is evaporating. Or is it?
