Long-distance relationships are high maintenance, even in this high tech age with face-to-face chats via webcam. Disagreements that can be sorted out very quickly in person with a touch or a hug, can escalate when a couple is apart, and that appears to be the case with Julianne and Matthew.
Meanwhile Julianne and Lady Amanda are secretly arranging a surprise wedding and reception for Constance, a renowned botanical artist, and one of Lady Amanda’s oldest and dearest friends. Julianna spends some time talking to Constance who told her the story of how her intended, Joseph, had proposed. This whimsical paragraph so delightfully phrased is an exquisite piece of writing and I have read it five times already. (It is also highlighted so I can find it again easily.) Further on in the story, when Julianne attends an exhibition of Constance’s watercolours in London, I came across another descriptive treasure that I have read several times. This one is also highlighted.
In between all, this Julianne is dealing with Matthew’s return, and with a very disagreeable, disobliging and downright rude temporary gardener at Cliffs House. The rest you will have to read for yourselves.
This book is very well-written and edited, and I am delighted to find a modern author who isn’t afraid to meander off on flights of fancy, especially given her marvellous use of the English language.
I am terribly tempted to give a five star rating just for those two paragraphs, but sticking to my code, I will bend it to give 4.5 stars. I DO wish Amazon would make provision for reviewers to give half stars.
ETA: I have re-read this book and am going to add that extra half star I was tempted to give on my first reading.
