Penarth’s Indie Bookshop Hosts Event with Ruth Jones

Griffin Books, Penarth’s independent bookshop, is set to host the UK launch even for Ruth Jones’ new novel, Love Untold.

Ruth Jones is best known for her outstanding and award-winning television writing, most notably BBC One’s Gavin and Stacey, which she co-wrote with James Cordon and in which she played the incorrigible Ness Jenkins. She has now transferred these skills into the world of books and Love Untold is her third novel. Her debut Never Greener has now sold over a quarter of a million copies. It was chosen as WHSmith Fiction Book of the Year 2018, was a Zoe Ball Book Club pick, and was a Sunday Times bestseller for fifteen weeks, with three weeks at number one. Ruth’s second novel, Us Three, was an instant Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and paperback.

Love Untold is a story about mothers and daughters and the complex bond between them. It’s about the heartache that comes from leaving things unsaid and the power of true forgiveness. It is a joy-filled, life-affirming, sob-inducing novel- with characters you’ll come to know and love.

The launch event will take place on Tuesday 27 September with the Cardiff venue soon to be announced. Tickets are £25, which includes a copy of Love Untold, and can be purchased from or by contacting the shop directly on / 02920 706455
