    Any fiction novel which follows the five or six literary fiction novels I have just finished may well have big shoes to fill but The Hand That First Held Mine held it s own I do so love it when an author combines combines real people into their story After reading this novel, I half expect if I pore over the photographs by John Deakin I shall find images of Lexie and Innes And likewise, if I go to Soho, I shall find on Bayton Street the faded chalk writing of the word elsewhere in front of the b [...]

    Oh no, another favourite author releasing a new title cue the sickening feelings of anxiety when I settle into the story , wondering if it will meet my expectations but any fears are quickly assuaged as I become immersed in this, Maggie O Farrell s fifth novel I devoured it in a few sittings one of those books you are eager to embrace but loath to leave.Like it s predecessor, The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox, there is a cleverly woven dual narrative, one set in the 1950s 1960s in Bohemian London [...]

    In sneltreinvaart uitgelezenee verhalen die met elkaar verbonden zijn in heden en verleden Soms ietwat quasi intellectueel, maar zo goed geschreven dat je meegetrokken wordt in het verhaal en alleen maar door wil lezenRelatie s en moederschap zijn de overheersende thema sachtige roman

    I loved this novel mostly because of the writing Yes, I loved the story and the characters too, but from the exquisite opening paragraph it was all about the writing Listen The trees in this story are stirring, trembling, readjusting themselves A breeze is coming in gusts off the sea, and it is almost as if the trees know, in their restlessness, in their head tossing impatience, that something is about to happen Something amazing does happen to Lexie and Innes, the characters we first meet Somet [...]

    Although choosing a favourite author is tough, when forced to do so I would often than not, answer with Maggie O Farrell as mine I find her style of writing beautiful, almost melodic and so incredibley descriptive and evocative of the senses that you really feel like you step into the world of the characters whilst reading.However, this was based on her first three books, and I have to say that despite being SO excited for the release of The Vanishing Act of Esme May only book I ve ever pre ord [...]

    This book is so hard to quantify with stars, because although I hated it for the majority, I have to admit that there were definite moments of genius I can recognize what she was attempting here there s a slow, poetic, visual quality to the writing that sometimes succeeds I can appreciate this type of novel huge Michael Cunningham fan here when it s done with substantial emotion and poignancy and when the words are stunning enough in themselves to negate the absolute need for a concrete plot But [...]

    O Farrell s novel could easily have turned out as a mawkish romance, but is exquisite instead This is serious literary fiction, and won a Costa Best Novel award to prove it The descriptive language is elegant and precise, with just the right number of words and images to create a mental picture of a lawn in Devon with laundry flapping on a line, or the cracked tiles of the entryway of a London row house Most of the book is in the present tense, which lends it immediacy and reality Moreover, the [...]

    Having recently read The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox and loved it, I was eager to read another book by Maggie O Farrell and the blurb of The hand that first held mine had me intrigued.Fresh out of university and in disgrace, Lexie Sinclair is waiting for life to begin when the sophisticated Innes Kent turns up on her doorstep in rural Devon In the present Ted and Elina no longer recognise their lives after the arrival of their first child Elina an artist wonders if she will ever paint again whi [...]

    The plot was interesting, but it moved too slowly for me More than 100 pages in, and it was still not clear how the two different story lines were related The author also spends a lot of time on the descriptions of the characters surroundings, which I found annoying They were too long, often unnecessary, and they kept the story from progressing Do I really need to know every time the baby arches his back to look up at the ceiling That there was pannini bread on the floor of the coffee shop I lik [...]

    4.5 stars This author doesn t disappoint She knows how to concisely convey her characters feelings and motivations to the reader For example, young motherhood and a colicky baby she communicates this perfectly, making me once again glad I m menopausal Oh, how she brought everything back Very hard to function on little sleep But I digress There are two story lines in this novel One is present day, one is historical, and eventually they intertwine Yes, even though you think they never will, they d [...]

    Intreccio di vite.Storia di Mamme in prima linea Mentre scrivo mio figlio dorme all estremit opposta della stanza E vivo da ducentoquindici giorni Abitiamo in un monolocale Ha tre denti e due nomi Storia di come, subito dopo la nascita, un figlio possa farti addirittura scordare chi sei Bel romanzo che si legge in un soffio.Forse piu facile da comprendere per chi ha vissuto gli smarrimenti, le insonnie e il torpore di un neonato da accudire Deve forse menzionare le notti insonni, le borse piene [...]

    Listen The trees in this story are stirring, trembling, readjusting themselves A breeze is coming in gusts off the sea, and it is almost as if the trees know, in their restlessness, in their head tossing impatience, that something is about to happen The garden is empty the patio deserted, save for some pots with geraniums and delphiniums shuddering in the wind A bench stands on the lawn, two chairs politely facing away from it A bicycle is propped up against the house but its pedals are stationa [...]

    This novel was a mixed bag for me At time, the writing is rather wonderful, indeed it would be worth the read to study and enjoy the first chapter alone, because therein lies the writer Maggie O Farrell at her best The scene in Soho is masterful, and again I would say worth picking up just to read this section Unfortunately, the writing style becomes tiresome the further into the narrative you go, perhaps because the characters never quite live up to what the reader might have expected of them N [...]

    Two parallel stories Lexie in the 60s and Elina in the present day We see Lexie from the time she rebels against her country upbringing and heads to London to forge a career, fall in love than once and meet the challenges of being a single mother We see Elina an artist from Finland, living with Ted in London only after she has had her first child It did not take me too long to guess the connections between the two stories but this did not detract from the novel s enjoyment Maggie O Farrell crea [...]

    The prose in this book was so smooth I sat and read for hours and it felt like minutes I had no idea where this book was going, but I knew I wanted to be there How in the world were these two women connected I really couldn t imagine it When everything finally came together, it was a great moment This book was worth getting two less hours of sleep than usual O Farrell does a flawless job describing how it feels to be a first time mother, being in love with your tiny baby but having your husband [...]

    After You d Gone was so good that it left me reeling, and even asking the librarian as I returned it have you read this You must read it It s the best book I ve read all year I thought it was something special, and when I first started reading The Hand That I even left comments on my post about After You d Gone saying that nothing could top it I take it all back this was even better So good in fact that in re reading this post before publication I know I sound like a gibbering wreck, unable to p [...]

    Another of the books told in alternating chapers about two different time periods, and we gradually learn how the two stories converge I was put off at first by that style, since I ve read so many of them recently, but very quickly the story and the characters grabbed me Of the two stories, the one I found engaging was the story of Lexie, who in the early 1950 s left her rural Devon home and large family for London after meeting an exciting, exotic flirt Innes Kent whose car broke down near her [...]

    I loved this one The writing was wonderful, I was hooked right from the very first page The story was wonderfully done as well I don t want to give much away.

    Se potessi descrivere concretamente la sensazione che si prova leggendo buona parte di La mano che teneva la mia , direi che molto simile a quella che si prova davanti al profumo intenso e inebriante di un fiore un misto di volutt e stordimento, pregnante, deliziosamemte nauseante, da capogiro Una sensazione strana, ma a suo modo piacevole E che del resto corrisponde a ci che provano, in epoche diverse, i protagonisti della nostra storia travolgimento e stordimento, passione e confusione, ambizi [...]

    The book follows two stories The first one is about Lexie Sinclair, a young girl in the 1950s who decides to leave her family and follow the intriguing Innes Kent to London where she starts a career in journalism The second is about Elina and Ted, whose child is born, and where we see the difficulty of motherhood for Elina and the progressive appearance of Ted s memories about his own childhood The book is an ode to family, love and life.I wasn t sure what to expect about this book, I read it as [...]

    You know when a book sweeps you in and envelopes your day and won t let you go until it is over This book did that for me and I could not be impressed with the author s beautiful prose, the pacing of the book, or what a gift Maggie O Farrell has for character development and the art of intertwining two beautiful stories into one.The book opens with the stunning Lexie Sinclair, a rebellious young woman, and a chance meeting for her and a very sophisticated man named Innes Kent It is in the post [...]

    I thought this was a truly beautiful book that will continue to play on my mind in the days to come As a mother with two young children, I thought it was a realistic portrait of motherhood and how our relationship with our mother and our children can have far reaching consequences good and bad over the years I particularly identified with Elina s experience of a traumatic c section and the early days of motherhood Having experienced much the same as this character, I was transported back in time [...]

    This was my third Maggie O Farrell book It wasn t my favourite, but it was still very good Her writing is so skilful and creative that I could never tire of it This novel consisted of two apparently unrelated stories, one of a young woman who moves to London in the 50s in pursuit of a man she s met only briefly, and a life away from her parents the other, set in the present day London, follows the tale of a young man and his wife and their new son The story of 50s London was the sparkling and e [...]
