Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Introspective and descriptive writing carry along a shaky plot and dangling ends in Thomas’ examination of a woman searching for her place in the world. Music writer Constance Thorne is living a seemingly idyllic life in Bali. But paradise can’t completely insulate her from the world. She is called back to London to be with her dying sister, Jeanette, a journey that is challenging in many ways. Years before, Constance fell in love with her sister’s husband and ended up not only heartbroken but also estranged from the family. Because she was a foundling and raised by adoptive parents, the rejection hit her very hard. Her solution—to flee to Bali—has anchored her until now. Following Constance from lush Bali back to noisy London, the story line also meanders around Jeanette’s son, Noah, and his girlfriend, Roxana, who is from Uzbekistan and does her own soul-searching. The different characters water down the plot, but some may be interested in the tangles of old family hurts and the potential power of true forgiveness. --Julie Trevelyan

Review

"From the idyllic paradise of Bali, to the fast-paced bustle of London and finally to the gritty streets of Uzbekistan, Thomas’ second novel maps out a resonating, touching story that most readers are unlikely to forget. Constance is a strong, beautiful character who’s been shaped by her mysterious and lonely past, which makes her all the more fascinating as the novel’s focal point. This particular saga is rich in both plot and setting, and is an addictive, well-written masterpiece featuring lovely and original characters." —Romantic Times Book Reviews


"A resonant and insightful novel" —Kirkus Reviews

This was a very good book. It tells the story of an abandoned baby, taken in by a family with a deaf child. The two girls seem to hate each other growing up. This hate becomes more intense, when they both fall I'm love with the same man. After many years, they reunite because cancer is killing the deaf sister.

As always, Rosie Thomas novels are very light and readable. She researches her subject well and you get to know and like the characters in the book.
