The Hand That First Held Mine

Posted by

The Hand That First Held Mine by Maggie Farrell is a really good read.

It tells the story of Lexi Sinclair, a university student who runs away from rural Devon to busy, exciting 1950s London.  There she falls in love with a magazine editor Innes Kent.  The novel jumps between Lexi’s story and that of Ted and Elina, a present day couple with a newborn baby living in London.  Ted has never been able to remember large parts of his childhood, but since the birth of his son he’s been having flashbacks which don’t tally with his parents’ version of things.

From the start, it’s known that the two storylines are connected and gradually throughout the novel, the connection becomes clear.  It’s a fast moving, easy to read book and I’d definitely recommend it.
