The Colour of Grass by Nia Williams is a story about families, past and present, and life’s unexpected connections.
Helen’s family is falling apart. There are no answers from her husband. She can't communicate with her daughter. So she turns to other relatives: the ones who are dead and gone. Straightaway she finds herself floundering in a new world of friends, secrets, enemies and family history enthusiasts. Clandestine meetings, a mugging, and the surprisingly tragic story of her mystery grandmother - all of these weave themselves into Helen's present and her unknown past.
With family history flourishing online, on TV and in magazines, The Colour of Grass is a gentle and touching story of families past and present, the identities we create for life's unexpected connections and ourselves.
