Format: Paperback
Much as I enjoy most of Marcia Willett's books, I found this one to be long-winded and over-detailed, with far too many flashbacks even as the book was proceeding. The main characters were pleasant enough, but the crises that occurred didn't touch me emotionally, because the book had mainly related facts leading up to them, rather than showing the feelings of the characters by conversation and behaviour. It was quite a good story, with an encouraging (if rather too tidy) ending, and fans of this genre will probably enjoy it - but in my opinion it could have done with significant editing.

I have read all of Marica Willett's books (and cannot wait for the two new ones being published next year...) and this one again did not disappoint. The characters are described with excellent depth, feeling and complexity, none of the black-or-white painting of people here. Again set in beautiful Devon countryside the book and story completely draw you in, you will not want to put this down. If you like Marcia Willett's books, you'll love this one too!

Format: Paperback
I have just read this wonderful book for the second time, after several years, and got so much more from it. This may be partly because I now know and love the South Hams, but also because the first time you read a book you are so keen to know the end that you miss much of the profound wisdom and depth of the unfolding of the characters and the events along the way. I think Alexander is a delightful and deeply caring person, with great wisdom. He is probably a bit idealised, but does it matter? He is a useful vehicle for expressing the wisdom which can come from having lived, having made mistakes and recovered from them, and with age, the finding of the ability to stand back a little from the complexities of human relationships and to help unravel them a bit. I really love all Marcia's books, but this is one of the finest. What a pity that it seems to be out of print now. I wanted to give it to several friends.

Format: Hardcover
This is a story in the traditional Marcia Willett vein.
Wonderful decriptions of Dartmoor and south Devon along with strong female characters.
The story keeps you hooked from the start with many threads ruuuning through the book.
I'm sure it will be enjoyed by all Willett fans but because it is not part of a series it would be a good intoduction to the writer.

I love all Marcia Willet books. I really get involved with the story and the characters and I don't want the story to end.I also like it when you read another one of her stories and you get characters from previous stories you have read popping up. Audrey Bond.

I found this novel easy to read and very engaging.Livng in the West Country myself,I could relate to the setting,too.The characters were well drawn and the reader felt involved with their predicaments and outcomes.
