Summer Read – The Privileged

Here is a new book for the beach this summer written by the most glorious Irish author Emily Hourican. It asks the question; if you could go back and tweak events could you save someone from the life they end up leading? What is the Notting Hill link? First I live in Notting Hill and my mum is Irish and Emily Hourican as I said is from the Emerald Isle. Second I met her last night in Notting Hill, was generously given a copy of her book and was completely smitten by her not least because she must be the first person I have met who can wear a block yellow dress and look fabulous. Please buy this from one of the local bookshops. Go raibh maith agat. Privileged-Emily-Hourican
