i found the writing to be very good, the thoughts expressed to be poignant and well reasoned, leaving room for that unexplainable, perhaps illogical feeling of "rightness" or "wrongness" in love. quite a bit of the novel has to do with the main characters' marriage, and her relationship with her husband and child. the setting is very lovely and far from london, in the north of england. some of the expressions and way of speaking are purely "brit speak"- just fyi for those who may not have encountered this before. context should be all that's required to understand.
this is a very pleasant book-the general feeling of the book is so low key and kindly- it's very highly recommended. i really enjoyed it a lot.
This is an intelligent work of compassionate literary fiction, in my humble opinion, and not 'chick lit' by any means, although I suppose the market tends that way. It deals with divorce and love and loss, not necessarily in that order, and with a generous humanity that allows the characters to find their own way in life, make their own mistakes, recover from them, without once making anyone into a pantomime villain or cardboard heroine, as anyone who's actually gone through a divorce may sometimes be tempted to do.
I highly recommend this book, for whatever that's worth.
I really liked this book. This is the first book that I have read from this author. I will keep my eye out for her other books.
For me, this novel built quietly and was thoughtfully presented by the author. One of the things that I always like in a romantic book is a sense of realism. Even if the book is fantasy, futuristic, historic, I like the characters to think/feel like real sensient beings. The author interweaves this introspective book with snippets of wisdom that seem born from real life trials and heartbreaks.
I like to mix up my romance genres, and this was a breath of fresh air, especially when you've had your fill of vampires, werewolves, and post-apocalyptic novels for a while. Just my two cents, but it's such a relief to not be pounded with sexually explicit content with no plot or look into the thoughts of the characters. I need to know why a character falls in love (not a fan of insta-lust relationships).
I don't see the heroine as weak as some reviewers have alluded. Let's face it; we all have our moments of doubt, of indeciseveness, vulnerability & struggle. What we present to the world is not always what's going on internally. We can only grow in character when we look deep within ourselves, see our strengths and flaws, and make the best decisions we can based on who we are at that moment in time. I feel that this book shows this. Knowing the history of the characters in this novel helps you to see this process better than other books I've read recently. I appreciate that immensely.
So, yes, this book isn't full of action/adventure, but it has subtle humor, verity, and relationships. It has a conclusion (no cliff hanger or serial novel here). I would recommend this book to a friend.
