    I think The Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp is Eva Rice s fourth novel I might be wrong about that number, but in any case, it is the long awaited follow up to The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets, which was published in 2005 I believe this book was originally slated to be published under the title The Dragonfly Summer, and it appears to have been delayed so many times I had started to think it would never see the light of day I m still not sure why, exactly, it has taken so long for this book to b I think The Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp is Eva Rice s fourth novel I might be wrong about that number, but in any case, it is the long awaited follow up to The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets, which was published in 2005 I believe this book was originally slated to be published under the title The Dragonfly Summer, and it appears to have been delayed so many times I had started to think it would never see the light of day I m still not sure why, exactly, it has taken so long for this book to be published, but I was delighted to spot a review of it in a magazine and snapped it up as soon as I could although that somehow ended up being two months after it came out Tara Jupp, one of eight siblings growing up in 1950s Cornwall, is unsurprisingly the central character of this lengthy novel it s basically her life story, although her older sister Lucy and Lucy s childhood best friend Matilda also feature prominently As a horse mad teenager, Tara is perfectly happy with her idyllic country life, but her impressive singing voice leads to her being noticed by the manager of a record label Afterwards, she is offered the chance to record and perform her music in London, receives a glamorous makeover and becomes caught up with the it crowd of the time, and all the while various family dramas and private emotional issues bubble away in the background It is obvious from the beginning that Tara is narrating her story from a perspective long after these events took place she occasionally refers to what happened afterwards or something that was said or done much later The book is divided into three parts the first concentrates on Tara s childhood, with much of the drama focused on Lucy and Matilda the second, and longest, deals with her move to London and rise to fame the third, which is quite short, is about the aftermath of that, and wraps all the loose ends of the story up.In a number of ways, this novel is very similar to The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets in fact, a number of the characters from that book actually make appearances in this one at various points I was quite excited to discover this, even though it s been years since I read Lost Art , so the stories are obviously very closely interlinked, and you get to discover what happened to those characters after the events of that book The author has also used a number of historical figures, from architecture historian Nikolaus Pevsner to Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, as characters in the novel And it s very, very meta for example, when two characters are having a conversation about another character who s writing a book, and they talk about how dangerous it is to use real people as characters There are constant knowing references to literary devices that are actually used in the book, and Tara occasionally addresses the reader directly, although it s not exactly clear what kind of account this is supposed to be If you ask me, it sometimes gets a bit too clever for its own good The problem with Tara s future narration was that it made me feel disassociated from what was happening like I couldn t really get close to the character, because she was describing a past version of herself, yet not really giving any clues about what kind of person she was in the present day, whenever that was actually supposed to be Somehow, though, I really loved the first part of the book, perhaps because it wasof an observation of the two older girls than a story about Tara herself The Jupps upbringing and Tara s relationships with her brothers and sisters, her idolatry of Lucy and Matilda, the wonderful settings especially Trellanack, the ancestral home of Matilda s family It was all very romantic and magical It was when the action moved to London that I started to lose interest and have doubts about the plot Once Tara was supposed to be at least halfway grown up , I stopped believing in her I wasinvested in Lucy s story, which is reallyof a subplot, than Tara s I didn t like view spoiler Tara and Digby together, nor did I find it believable that he would actually have any continuing interest in her and because Tara herself wasn t bothered about being successful or famous, I found it hard to care about that, too hide spoiler When I reviewed Lost Art, I wrote that my main problem with the book was its predictability, and that was also an issue here It was glaringly obvious who Tara would end up with and while I m not going to pretend the romantic bits didn t move me at all there wasn t much suspense, nothing to really root for other than for Lucy to be happy and I don t think that was the point.Something else that annoyed me was that I found quite a few spelling mistakes, errors of repetition and incorrect punctuation lots of missing commas in the Kindle copy I was reading Two sizes two small and your instead of you re were the worst I spotted, but there were lots altogether Given that this book took years to publish, you d think those could have been weeded out If The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets was, as I wrote when I reviewed it, the literary equivalent of a huge slice of chocolate cake , The Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp waslike a packet of chocolate biscuits sweet and pleasant enough, but not the indulgent treat I was hoping for It started with a lot of promise, and after the first few chapters I was expecting an epic life story that would span decades and take in Tara s whole career Unfortunately, and despite the lengthiness of the book is the print edition really only 320 pages Edited to add checked in a bookshop and it s 584, contrary to whatsays , it didn t turn out that way, and although I still cared about what happened in the end, I found myself losing some of my sympathy and interest in the characters I quite liked reading this it s pretty absorbing, especially at the beginning, and a decent bit of escapism when you want to get away from the real world but I can t pretend I wasn t a bit disappointed

    I loved The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets, it s a fantastic book and one that I was sad to put down So I was happy to discover that The Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp features several of the characters from Secrets and with that in mind I bought it and jumped right in.Tara Jupp is one of my new favorite characters, she is so utterly herself that you really can t help but like her She is not a highly sophisticated young lady who strides around London with ease, but is instead a very countryside g I loved The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets, it s a fantastic book and one that I was sad to put down So I was happy to discover that The Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp features several of the characters from Secrets and with that in mind I bought it and jumped right in.Tara Jupp is one of my new favorite characters, she is so utterly herself that you really can t help but like her She is not a highly sophisticated young lady who strides around London with ease, but is instead a very countryside girl fresh from Cornwall who does her best in odd situations.Also the fact that in her youth she was an adamant reader of 1940 s pony books and is comfiest in Jods and an old blouse was fab.Returning characters come in several different shapes and forms, with some only showing up as a brief cameo or mention while others have afully fledged out role.Tara s family are an interesting lot with masses of children knocking around the place and her father the mildly terrifying vicar They all bump along quite happily and make for some fun reading through their interactions with one another.As for the plot, I enjoyed it a great deal, I won t give any spoilers but to me it was very much a story about relationships and the complications that come with them and how life is never easy and often confusing, but it s usually worth it in the end

    Oof One to file under not my thing , I think Just way too cosy and slow moving for my taste.Plus, the audio book narrator s decision to affect a terrible Westcountry accent is making me uncomfortable I m from the Westcountry We don t sound like that.

    Here s the thing I think I would have liked this muchif it was a completely separate thing from The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets But because it is a sequel of sorts, it will always be compared to it, and Tara just can t stand up to that The first part of the book is really good The interactions at the beginning with Lost Art characters were good, but I really enjoyed the story of two sisters figuring out who they were And then everything shifts and I feel let down by it all This was Here s the thing I think I would have liked this muchif it was a completely separate thing from The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets But because it is a sequel of sorts, it will always be compared to it, and Tara just can t stand up to that The first part of the book is really good The interactions at the beginning with Lost Art characters were good, but I really enjoyed the story of two sisters figuring out who they were And then everything shifts and I feel let down by it all This was a good, solid story that was only hindered by having Inigo be such a focus If Inigo whom I loved in Lost Art was just a different leading man, I would ve enjoyed this muchI think I don t think Tara is the best main character She was not fully formed to me and I didn t feel like some of the things she did especially her early stages with Digby were consistent with the character she claimed to be Also, I m not sure why, but my copy of the book had MANY editing errors Misspellings, repeated words, weird sentences, obvious wrong word choices that just felt like typos that weren t fixed It was weird Overall I liked it well enough, I was engaged enough to read it, but I don t think it stacks up at ALL to the inevitable comparisons to its predecessor 1 30 20 The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets is one of my favorite books of all time and I ve read it many times I m not sure what to rate this yet

Keep ing Secrets will be pleased to dis cover that yes, famil iar faces do pop up in this book.Rice s skills as an author lie not only in her abil ity to bring the 1960 s so vividly to life, but in the way she writes real is tic, rounded and com pelling char ac ters Tara isn t as engag ing a hero ine as Pene lope, but I liked the nar ra tive choice to let the reader see the world through her eyes Tara feels like a young woman I could have known grow ing up I prob a bly was her at some point grow ing up Shel tered and na ve, I think Tara is a pro tag o nist a lot of read ers will iden tify

it off Yet she s never a weak or insipid char ac ter Rice really cap tures that feel ing of being sev en teen with the whole world at your fingertips.The heart of the novel is really Tara s rela tion

we last left them view spoiler For those who enjoy a bit of romance in their books, the scenes between Tara and Inigo are beau ti fully under stated though I found they lacked the chem istry of Pene lope and Harry hide spoiler Set eight years after The Lost Art of Keep ing Secrets, this feels like quite a dif fer ent book, which isn t nec es sar ily a bad thing It smature, cer tainly denser and per haps a smidgen over long It has quite a sedate begin ning, but look ing back I appre ci ated the depth of char ac ter back ground Rice takes the time to build up Some read ers might be a lit tle thrown that a good first third of the novel is about Tara s child hood and despite the syn op sis, I wouldn t say the focus of the book is really Tara s singing career Small coun try girl makes it big may sound a lit tle clich but Rice han dles it in her own unique style The Mis in ter pre ta tion of Tara Jupp is a coming of age story that has a rich ness and char ac ter to it and in large part this is due to the amount of detail that has gone into this book As with her pre vi ous novel, Rice really cap tures the era, the peo ple and the move ments of the time and sev eral recog nis able fig

    I really enjoyed this book, and came close to giving it five stars, but I found the ending slightly contrived and twee That aside, I wasn t able to put this book down, and found all the characters genuinely likeable The descriptions of the period and the great houses were convincing, and I felt like I was part of the Jupp family.
