Review of 'Grandmothers' on 'Storygraph'

3 stars

This book is the story of three women who are grandmothers or look after children and how the relationship with them and their children affects their life. The three women are very different and had led different lives, however they meet and create a bond.

I find the story interesting, because it explores an age that it is rarely found in books, but it is such a big part of our life. The three women have had (or not) a career, a family, a partner, and now need to find themselves again, to feel they are still individuals with their own interests and skill set, Sort of a second coming of age story.

The style is smooth, kept me interested. The characters are well described although I noticed there isn't almost any mention of health issues they might have, which makes it less realistic and misses the point a bit. …
