Gwen is a character who speaks to my soul; someone who longs to be accepted for who she is, but has been marginalized.
I like that her story illustrates how easy it is to assume things about ourselves and those we love, simply because there has been a lack of honesty, which has led to painful assumptions.
The story comes alive vividly and believably thanks to its well-developed characters. Many readers will identify with at least one of them.
Gwen's family dynamics are believable and her romantic relatkinship with Cam is not riddled with cliches.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to immersing myself in the next one, which focuses on Katie, who is Gwen's niece.

Saying all that, it is an okay read. Telling the story of Gwen who returns to her childhood village when she is bequeathed her great aunt Iris's house - it soon becomes clear that Iris was a bit of a "witch" to the local villagers and kept their secrets written in note books. Having possession of these note books, Gwen is not really welcomed into the community. Gwen has a gift of her own, that I won't go into as it could spoil the story if you read it, but she is loath to use her (magic) gift and just wants to live an ordinary life ............ which of course she doesn't do. Bit of a girl meets up with old boyfriend theme and some trouble with her sister and niece.............. If you are looking for a nice rainy day read without too many complications or tricky plot, then this could be the book for you.
However, when she moves into her Great Aunt's house, she meets her first love again, so we have a love story entwined with the story of Gwen and the village people.
Enjoyable to read.
