Loved this book.
This may be my favorite Marcia Willett book do far The characters grabbed me and would not let go I began reading Willett as a substitute for Rosamunde Pilcher Now I read them for their own depth of character and quirky plots Of course both of these ladies take me back to Devon and Cornwall, places in my heart.
believeable characters, good storyline,and a positive ending
Very good book I enjoyed it.
This audio book was an absolute delight and I really loved how June Barrie read and interpreted Marcia Willett s characters It exuded such warmth, humour and pathos and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Barrie bring Felix, Angel, Pidge, Piers, Tilda and Marina to life The I listen to audio books the I get how they take you to a different level and experience, particularly when the narrator is so skilled in creating the voices and conveying the emotion of the moment Willett s writing is quite detailed, especially in describing the interactions between characters, as well as the landscape and setting of the story so it does take a clever narrator to keep the listener engaged but she does it perfectly I enjoyed sharing my journey each morning as it took me to Exmoor and Dunster and loved how Willett brings in characters from other books and weaves them into to other novels Loved it.
