This month, three new books conjure up eras that stay with you long after you’ve read the final page. Decadent ’80s Soho clubland is the setting for The Glittering Art Of Falling Apart by liana Fox. Bookseller Cassie unravels a 30-year-old family mystery, as she retraces the life of her relative Eliza Boyle, a troubled model with a penchant for partying. Meanwhile, there’s a hint of Wuthering Heights to The Ballroom by Anna Hope, thanks to its Yorkshire Moors setting and tortured-love-affair plot. The titular ballroom is in an asylum, where, during the heatwave of 1911, inmates John and Ella dance and passions boil over. The course of true love never did run smooth, though- something feisty 19-year-old Anne Jaccob is keen to rectify in the wonderful The Butcher’s Hook, by Janet Ellis. The debut novel from the ex-fi/ye Peter presenter is a doozy. In Georgian London, Anne’s wealthy family want her to marry drippy Mr Onions; she, however, has her heart set on lowly butcher’s apprentice Fub. The lengths she goes to to follow her heart will take your breath away.
