Format: Paperback
The heroine in this book captures the attention of her fellow passengers by pulling the communtication cord on a train to rescue a sheep. Whilst one of the passengers is haunted by this image we discover the woman is in the midst of her own tragedy. Although this isn't the best Mary Wesley novel I've ever read it is certainely a brilliant book. Wesley does not shy away from tackling the big issues, life, sex and death, but does not do so in a morbid way. this book is modern without being full to the brim of heroin addicts and hard core sex, and can be enjoyed by all ages, my Grandma is also a fan!

I just love Mary Wesley, and working out how new characters are linked to those in her other books. As usual, couldn't put it down until I'd finished it - then wanted to start all over again!

By hfffoman TOP 500 REVIEWER on 10 Feb. 2015
Format: Paperback
This little novel about troubled urban youngsters and their troubled parents reminds me a little of the film Sleepless in Seattle: lightly entertaining and inconsequential. The good characters need love and mothering, and the bad ones are enjoyably awful. Her observation of urban life is good. I particularly like the two contrasting priests (please excuse me if that is not the precise word for them). The dialogue is mostly well written but in a few places I thought it missed the mark, particularly towards the end.

I wouldn't describe it as acutely insightful or deep and it certainly isn't a classic, but it is well written and enjoyable enough for holiday or light reading.

I enjoy Mary Wesley's style of writing and her plotlines are unusual and thought provoking. This story held my interest from the first to the last page. It was most enjoyable.

Mary Wesley is always to be admired, not only for starting to write so late in life but also for giving an insight into english ways of behaviour and situations that surely relate to her own experience of life.
