The Peacock Emporium : A Novel

Publishers Weekly


(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Moyes moves forward from her Me Before You trilogy with an emotionally luscious, freestanding novel about generations of mothers and daughters navigating grief and the satisfaction of self-discovery. Suzanna Peacock lives in a small town in Suffolk near the estate of the family from whom she has estranged herself, and struggles with an unsettled marriage and pressure to have a baby. Despite her awkwardness with people, she opens a quirky coffee and curio shop. A young mother in an abusive relationship and an Argentinian male midwife become her close friends at the shop, but she keeps even from them her inner turmoil about her relationships to her missing birth mother, wild debutante Athene Forster, and to Vivi Fairley-Hulme, the mother who raised her. Moyes moves back and forth though the timeline to tell Suzanne and Vivi's stories with profound sympathy. Though this is not a romance novel like Moyes's previous works, it maintains their legacy of diving into the emotions of desire and connection, and a spirit of optimism and setting the world right.

BookList Review

The Peacock Emporium : A Novel

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

When Douglas Fairley-Hume married the dazzling Athene Forster, Vivi Newton kept her heartbreak to herself. Thirty-five years later, Susanna Peacock is miserable living back in Dere, but she and her husband, Neal, need both the austerity and the help of her parents after going broke in London. Susanna has always felt like the odd duck in the properly well-achieving Fairley-Hume family, so she sets out to create something of her own: a shop in town. She just doesn't want help or to talk to anyone. Fortunately for her, Jessie shows up looking for a job, and her stubborn gregariousness draws customers in, particularly Alejandro, a lonely midwife from Argentina. Each of them has a secret pain that draws them to each other, despite their differences. Originally published in the UK in 2005, The Peacock Emporium is occasionally bogged down by repressed feelings and is more of a cross between Penny Vincenzi and Debbie Macomber than Moyes' more recent books (like After You, 2018). Still, Susanna's journey from a frustrated, spoiled housewife to her own woman is full of Moyes' signature sweet, tear-jerking moments.--Susan Maguire Copyright 2019 Booklist
