In many ways it’s a gentle story, a real mixture of opportunities lost and feelings unspoken, and yet, alongside some moments of real sadness, there are touches of light humour, with some laugh out loud funny moments. The gentle and insightful way in which the story is allowed to develop, and the way in which the characters are given the opportunity to tell their own story, demonstrates the author’s unique ability to get into the minutiae of everyday life.
I’ve read several of Catherine Alliott’s books and always enjoy the perceptive way she writes and brings her characters to life. Her books always make perfect holiday reads.
