My book of the month: September

This is Kelly Doust's first novel (she has written several non-fiction books) and gosh it's a great read. It honours the author's love of textiles as the story follows the journey of a glittering, hand-beaded collar through the decades since it was created in 1891.

It's such an absorbing story, focusing on desire, relationships, family and love, while also recognising that the sparkling things for which we strive aren't really that important after all.
