I’m not a big fan of the need to ‘define’ a book’s genre. Indeed, if you asked me about What She Never Told Me by Kate McQuaile, I’d struggle to classify it at all. I’d easily be able to offer up a short synopsis; but it’s intriguing without being a suspense or thriller; and I’d be loath to mention the sprawling and complicated family featured in case you mistook it for something by Maeve Binchy or similar.
It’s none of those things. But it is good.
