Euston station, 8:30 p.m. It’s midsummer and London sweats and steams, clutched in the middle of a heatwave. The after-work crowds have thinned but the concourse is still busy, figures in damp, crumpled suits staring at the announcement boards where times and destinations flash in orange letters. Families huddle in groups, mothers fanning young children and handing out water bottles as they wait, perched on piles of luggage.
I read Libby Page’s “The Lido” and thoroughly enjoyed it. This new novel is about ‘starting over’, a trope that I usually like. The setting is also attractive to me. I love books set on islands – and if the island is in Scotland, then all the better.
Is this a title that you would consider adding to your TBR pile?
Why, or why not?
Let me know in the comments.
