But, I do love this tale of two young people, who had been childhood friends developing a happy marriage in the hills of Scotland. Their careers had started to separate them, and in the previous book they had eventually decided that their love was too strong to deny. And this book tells how they adjust to married life on a farm in the Scottish Boarder country. This adjustment is especially hard for Rhoda, who had been living in London devoted to her art. How she discovers that she can have her career as an artist as well as be a farmer's wife to James is a major thread.
Another major plot thread is the weather (the British title for this novel is Winter and Rough Weather), and the winter snows isolate the farm and the people learn to deal with that as well.
This book can provide a lovely winter holiday in the hills of Scotland. Best read in front of a nice wood fire, with a cup of hot chocolate!
I liked Vittoria Cottage, loved Music in the Hills but Shoulder the Sky was definitely stepping into Barbara Cartland territory.
I blame her editors who should have recognised that it was not half as good as it's predecessor and encouraged her to make some major changes. Spoiler alert.....I could see the doctor's lost wife showing up as the housekeeper a mile away and there was no rational explanation why they would have married in the first place.
The final denouement was gratifying but the book ended too suddenly for me. I wanted it to continue on with the interesting futures promised for its characters.
