    The Villa Rouge follows Morgan Perincall's life, the threads of which though frayed even before the war, begins to unravel once her husband volunteers for service. Bit by bit Morgan's previous life disintegrates keeping pace with the events developing overseas. Abandoned by her husband Cat, Morgan is left alone in London with her two children. After the children are evacuated into the country the only place Morgan can seek shelter is her childhood home The Villa Rouge, with her father, overly affectionate, war obsessed younger brother and their disagreeable housekeeper. Morgan developed a bit of a reputation for herself when she was a young girl, her marriage and move to London provided an escape from that and she worries that it will return to haunt her when the only distraction from the pain of being separated from her husband and children and the drudgery of running a household is the newly arrived RAF squadron.

    This is a great debut novel by Léan Cullinan, written from the first-person perspective of the heroine, Cait Houlihan, and set in Dublin. A recent arts graduate from Trinity, she is now working for a small publishing house while trying to maintain her social life with former fellow students who all seem to be living far more glamorous lives than her, and indulging her hobby by singing in a local choir. She lives in a flat owned by her uncle, for which she pays only nominal rent, and her life and daily routines seem perfectly mundane and ordinary with the tedium occasionally broken by visits to family, with whom she retains close ties.

    This is the story of Jane Eyre as you have never read it before. Jane Stubbs has subtly and engagingly retold the events at Thornfield Hall in a new way perfect for today: the language in keeping with the setting but accessible to the modern reader, the story weaving effortlessly above and below stairs in a way to make Downtown Abbey jealous. If you haven’t read Jane Eyre, or seen any of the film adaptations, you could still enjoy this book but I think you wouldn’t understand how great it is. ...
