This book was depressing and sad and not for the reasons you'd think. I hated the story line and could not believe the direction it went. I would not recommend it at all.

464 pages of mostly tedious dialogue. I read only the first 3 and last 3 chapters. I thought the main character was controlling and didn't like her at all. Felt sorry with the husband who did his best but had his feelings disregarded. The children were poorly drawn and may have well as been cardboard cut outs.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a unique love story, with several twists and turns along the way. It wasn't what I was expecting, but it was a very satisfying read. I've heard some readers were not happy with the ending, but I thought it was perfect.

I have read everything by Eileen Goudge but this was one I did not care for. It seemed to be different from her usual style and I couldn;t get past the first few chapters. I did not finish it. Disappointed!

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was nothing like you would expect. It is actually more upbeat than it sounds. The book is well written and the characters are most enjoyable.

Looking at him now, she saw a study in contrasts. Someone who was kind and loyal but who could also be stubborn and intractable; who was his own man but also your typical man from Mars; who was always there for her but who had a tendency to hold back when showing his own emotions; who was forgetful at times but who never forgot was was most important. In short, someone who wasn't perfect but perfect for her, because of rather than in spite of his flaws.
