  • I found this book very compelling reading Lydie is a bit buttoned up and difficult to warm to you find out why as the book progresses , but I adored Ralph Jonty was wonderful too, as was Lydie s daughter Grace The Devon settings are wonderfully described with just enough detail to evoke memories of summer holidays It s a good family drama and a nice sunny read.


  • This was a fascinating family story just the kind I enjoy Jonty and Lydie were young lovers but separated leaving her pregnant and heartbroken They have always held a candle for each other and when their lives collide again the question is whether the time will be right for them this time
