In fairness, this isn't really my type of book, I'm more into intrigue and suspense, but I did actually enjoy reading this!
It's hard to comment without giving away the plot. Ben Darling has worked away from home for most of his married life. He and his wife Hattie live in a small, sleepy country town, and Hattie has never wanted to go with Ben on his travels for work. The book starts with Ben returning home, has a big reunion with his wife and promptly
dies. Doesn't take much imagination to work out that he has a big secret, or what it is!
The storyline is that Hattie wants to find out the secret and sets off on her journey.
It's not a mystery story, but one about what Hattie finds out, and how she deals with her discoveries.
Perhaps the book is best described as a gentle, enjoyable read.
