    This is a rather turgid and peculiar blend of the worst kind of American cod psychology and a Mills Boon novel It’s very overwritten and contains long scenes where characters think through their emotions and situations in great and laborious detail either by themselves or with other people It was all very exhausting and at times unintentionally amusingThat’s not to say the basic premise isn’t interesting as it is Daisy is forced to reconsider her dancing career due to injury Kate is coming to terms with the death of her husband and Roly has to move on from an unreuited romance A great deal of tension could have resulted from this set of circumstances but unfortunately the sheer amount of emoting dissolved any sliver of tension away that there might once have been It’s a case of a misguided attempt at poetic prose killing all the plot stone deadThe characters are themselves rather clichéd as well and so no matter how much they discuss their various tragedies with each other I never really cared about any of it I did have some sympathy with Monica who’s cast as the evil mother of the piece as she found everyone else in the book just as irritating as I did – but even she is really too much of a caricature to come to life on the pageTowards the end I got very bored and began skipping the purple prose to see if anything important happened It doesn’t and to cap it all the whole sudden issue of the sexuality of one of the characters in the final chapters is both badly planned and utterly ridiculous It made me laugh and for all the wrong reasonsVerdict 2 stars Badly written and unrealistic

    It is summer and the best time to catch up on Marcia Willet's novels This one includes characters from previous books I love her books She is often compared to Rosemund Pilcher much recognized here in the US but I like her books better SHe deals with modern people and contemporary situations set in the backdrop of English country living SHe is a must read if you like cottages tea and dogs running about the countryside

    I listened to this book as a MP3 download I thought the story jumped around Just when I began to understand the character the author jumped to the other character The story takes place in England and deals with the characters personal struggles and how they relate to one another I would not recommend this book

    It reminded me of a Maive Binchy A group of interconnected characters and how they relate to each other

    Hmm Goodreads asks for a rating before a review but while I was thinking about it my initial 4 star rating became a 2 star rating And now I feel like using my review to explain it x'My enjoyment of this book was rather good; there was nothing that bothered me too much and the storyline was okay I was overall enjoying the reading and uite engaged with the characters too Yet when I have to be critical there are so many points I want to makeSo here are my star stealers The narrative is all about telling and not showing It is so full of adjectives that the reader is forced to believe everything the way it is; there is no room for imaginative interpretation The characters all talk with the same kind of assertive sensitive in own business and no nonsense in other's business voice with the exception of Monica who is the cliche insensitive egoist Other typical characteristics are added to some characters by way of telling again The story is written in the past tense but then memories are related in the present tense This was confusing at the first encounter of a memory but it still doesn't make sense to me why the author did so I'm guessing about 40 50% of the story is thought processing which gets a little annoying It is in these thought processes that I lose focus I'm struggling as is with focus author I have ADD The thought processing in the tale has the effect of telling and not showing also The reader will know what every character thinks about everything and every other character in addition to how that character feels There is no room for imagination leftSo there I was entertained with the story but I was reading it passively and could not uite use much imagination The story shall be forgotten in a month

    Not a favouriteSadly I didn't enjoy this novel as I have all of Marcia Willetts other books Story line was rather limp and too much written about music and and dance Whilst I appreciate the story included music and Hallett it was rather heavy As usual the description of the countryside was outstanding

    I suggest if you have a choice between audio and book form choose the book There are two charactersone named Gemma and the other named Janna and it's almost impossible to tell the difference between the names on audio It made for a lot of confusion for me and I think it affected my enjoyment of the book

    This is a lovely story for readers who like a story about kindness and love from people who help each other get through some of the traumas of their lives There is a wonderful cast of characters who interact with each other in mostly positive ways as they traverse the traumatic situations they are experiencing or have experienced It is a book that tells a good story and is uplifting as well
