I love being a part of book blog tours. This week I’m on the tour for Relativity by Antonia Hayes. A wonderful story testing all limits of love and family.
Ethan is an exceptionally gifted young boy, obsessed with physics and astronomy.
His single mother Claire is fiercely protective of her brilliant, vulnerable son. But she can’t shield him forever from learning the truth about what happened to him when he was a baby; why Mark had to leave them all those years ago.
Now age twelve, Ethan is increasingly curious about his past, especially his father’s absence in his life. When he intercepts a letter to Claire from Mark, he opens a lifetime of feelings that, like gravity, will pull the three together again.
Relativity is a tender and triumphant story about unbreakable bonds, irreversible acts, and testing the limits of love and forgiveness.
Relativity is an inspiring novel. Written from three different perspectives of Claire, Ethan and Mark. A family, broken up when Ethan was small. Working on their issues to find forgiveness.
This story has been well researched, the amount of time and effort Hayes has put in really pays off regarding the physics. I completed an A-Level in physics so the scientific facts and the way it’s been incorporated into the story fascinated me and really drew me in.
Ethan is a special gifted young man. He can see things that others can’t. The sad thing is that this means he is a target for bullies. I love the way Ethan’s story is told and how his mum Claire has shielded him from some fairly harsh things. When his dad Mark makes a return it’s hard to read what happened.
A captivating story which is astounding for a debut novel.
I have given Relativity by Antonia Hayes 5 out of 5 stars (which is rare for me, but it totally deserved it!)
