Review quote

Although the story jumps frequently from place to place and from one generation to the next, the author is able to make these effortless transitions for the reader. The characters are strong, believable and endearing - and will evoke recognition and sympathy from all ages ... an enjoyable read and a promising debut novel. Sunday Express This perceptive novel does the mothers-and-daughters thing in page-turning style ... Be sure that your bookmark is a hankie Elle An emotional roller-coaster of a read Company The attitudes of these strong-minded women and their generations are masterfully captured Hello I enjoyed this novel very much Rosamunde Pilcher A very beautiful and very moving story Lesley Pearse This is a remarkable first novel, rich and deep and full of wonderfully realized characters. Oh, these women! Anne Rivers Siddons A really really good book. One of the best I have read for you. I could identify with so much... It had everything going for it. It was well written with well rounded characters and a very good story to boot! Marks: 9/10. I am almost tempted to give it a 10/10! Sarah Broadhurst book blog
