    Read this in one sitting on New Years Day so it was an easy read. Lots to like about the writing and lots to recognise about middle class life in the Central belt. 3* because I found some the parallels between the two story lines a bit unconvincing and at the end I was unclear who the main protagonists father was ? Maybe I read it too fast !

    Eventually Freya must confront, not only her mother’s lies, but her own capacity for deception. The Daughter of Lady Macbeth is a heart-wrenching study of insecure attachment, marital tension and infertility. With beautiful descriptions of settings and relationships, my only quibble is that perhaps the author packed too much into the novel.Full review The Daughter of Lady Macbeth by Ajay Close http://annegoodwin.weebly.com/1/post/...

    By some fluke I received a print version in advance of the publication date. No matter that I've 90+ other books on my to-be-read pile I began reading it as soon as I was able to. The first six pages were so rich and sensual, so beguiling, that I had to stop and regain normality, before re-reading them and eventually continuing. And what a wholly absorbing, satisfying yet throat-aching story it turned out to be, and how admirably sensitive and vivid Ajay Close's observations of the world and the folk within it. Thank you for a wonderful read.
