    I m so relieved that I ve finished this I feel like I should get a medal for making it through this Any other author and I would have given up easily after the first couple chapters I m not an easy reader, I m not one of those people that can finish a book in a day so its really a miracle that I slugged through this and finished it.I would not recommend this to anyone who loves romances My thoughts while reading this BoredI want to give up..The main character Suzanna is depressing to read.BoringI feel sorry for her husband Neil So depressing.What the hell is this book even about I want to read something elseAnd this is all just 30% that I read.I hated how her husband Neil was treated, he desperately just wanted kids and Suzanna s attitude to all that was just a complete inconvenience to her I felt like Neil was wasting his time with her and should just divorce her, she definitely didn t deserve him I mean she s nearing 35 he s nearly 40, she s not getting any younger and there been together for 10 or so years, If she didn t want kids then she should have let her husband go so he could have a future with someone else Every interaction she has with her husband I kept thinking poor Neil I felt sorry for him for staying with Suzanna who felt to me was completely dead inside If Neil was some drunk ...

    I won this ARC in a GoodReads giveaway I ve been a big fan of Jojo Moyes since first discovering her work in One Plus One While this one was a bit difficult to get into at first, by the time I was halfway through the book I was entranced and completely moved by the final pages.

    Un drama encantador sobre la familia y el amor escrito maravillosamente Otra historia asombrosa de Jojo Moyes Suzzana, una chica defectuosa e infeliz, es frecuentada y moldeada por su pasado a pesar de que ella sabe poco sobre ello Su vida se ha puesto al rev s y en la b squeda de una manera de vivir una vida aut ntica y feliz, abre su tienda obstinadamente siguiendo su coraz n La tienda se convierte en el catalizador para una nueva vida y una nueva confianza para Suzzana, aprender qui n es y encontrar el amor, la amistad y disfrutar de la compa a de otros Debo reconocer que al principio no me gust Suzanna, pero una vez que entiendes m s sobre su vida familiar y ver c mo su car cter evolucionas, tiendes a tomarle cari o.Me aloque un poco cuando le facetas de misma en Suzzana y en otros personajes interesantes que conforman esta historia tan sensatamente contada Jojo inyecta la vida en sus personajes de una manera que ning n otro autor maneja.Suzanna Peacock y la gente que forma parte de su vida, sus penas, sus peque as alegr as, sus agon as, sus errores, todo es pintado por Jojo Moyes de...

    A bit confusing in my opinion, but good once the ending brings everything together The Peacock Emporium reflects Jojo Moyes much earlier work as it was first published 15 years ago Moyes has grown as a writer by leaps and bounds since then but this novel was still an interesting read that alternates timeframes and heroines.My favorite quote Because that was it, loving someone, wasn t it The knowledge that, if nothing else, you wanted them to be happy Audiobook narrated by Eliz...

    I did enjoy this eventually it took for me an exceptionally long time to read, over a week I found it very slow and it took me ages to feel involved enough in the story to want to read much than a chapter at a time The first few chapters are important as they introduce the reader to the history of the heroine s family background At the time this may seem irrelevant but persevere and read beyond this and it will all click into place.The protagonist is Suzanna Peacock who with her husband has returned to live in the small country town of her birth An emotionally disturbed young woman she has a lot to come to terms with in her life, especially her past and the way her mother though long dead still seems to affect her happiness The only place Suzanna seems to be comfortable with herself is in the Peacock Emporium the shop she opens and it is here we learn the stories o...

    A pesar de que Jojo tiene un patr n de novelas muy concreto, historia del pasado que se cruza y afecta al presente, me gusta mucho la sensibilidad que tiene en su escritura y la forma de contar las cosas m s dram ticas sin ser una tragedia griega En esta historia nos cuenta la forma en la que el pasado, nuestra forma de entenderlo y recorda...

    JoJo Moyes came onto my radar with her two books about her caretaker role with her handsome, intelligent patient in, Me Before You and After You I believe half the world, okay maybe half the women in the world, discovered her with these two phenomenal books and the movie that soon followed This then forces me to pose an unpopular question Why release this book, Peacock Emporium written in 2004, a very early book for Moyes, already released in the UK then, NOW in the US Don t get me wrong, it s a decent book, but clearly not her best, just an early try We know she s improved as a writer enormously We love her books, in fact, we love her Maybe her publisher thought, her fans just want her books ALL THE TIME, why don t we give them this too Ok, I ll buy that but please make sure you put the original 2004 date as when written, and 2019 as the US publication Otherwise, US fans will be confused.As far as my review of the book Athene Foster is a spoiled rich girl who loves to have fun, and I mean FUN She literally seduces the most eligible money bachelor into marriage She has an affair gasp and produces a daughter, Suzanna Peacock, who 35 years later opens up, The Peacock Emporium a quaint, bold, and eclectic coffee shop in her original hometown...

    I was not sure what I was getting into when I started this book By the end I was enchanted by the story In the Swinging Sixties, the glamorous spoilt socialite Athene appears to have it all, but she has a big fall from grace and disappears, leaving an infant daughter Suzanna The daughter has fraught, complicated relationships with her remaining family, which has led to bad feelings and social distance between them Suzanna eventually finds a kind of liberation in the shop that she opens in her village She builds a whole new community of interesting and caring people who walk through the door of her emporium Through them she learns about the real world than she did in her previous 30 something years of sheltered life as the difficult, moody child of a well to do family In time Suzanna learns that many of the planks on which her ...

    I never write reviews but I had to for this book If Jojo Moyes meant to write the worlds most annoying main character, Suzanna Peacock, then she is a wonderful author mission accomplished.
