Book Description

19 Aug 1999
Naomi had been contentedly and, she thought, happily married for nearly all of her adult life when her husband Edward explained kindly to her one day that he had fallen in love with a twenty-six year old and wanted a divorce. She had to leave the comfortable home she had shared with Edward and their three children, now all grown-up, and move into a small flat in the middle of Bath. The dramatic change in her lifestyle threatened to overwhelm her. But gradually Naomi began to appreciate the changes, and even to enjoy them. For the first time in her life she could do what she liked, and make her own friends. If these included men friends - well, why not? Unfortunately her children could think of many reasons why not, and Naomi began a battle to establish her own independence, and to persuade her family that she had moved into the springtime of a whole new life. In this warm and inspiring new novel, Elvi Rhodes’s wonderful storytelling skills are used to explore a dilemma faced by many women today.

More About the Author

Elvi Rhodes was born and brought up in Yorkshire, and now lives on the Sussex Coast.

After many years publishing short stories in magazines, Elvi published her first novel, Opal, in 1984, quickly followed by more bestselling novels, 20 in all, many set in Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Dales. Notable works include Ruth Appleby, Madeleine, The House of Bonneau, Spring Music, Midsummer Meeting, A Blessing In Disguise and Mixed Blessings.

She describes herself as a storyteller, saying "I don't write my novels to further a cause, or to put forward a particular point of view. I just have a story in my head which I hope you'll want to hear, one which will entertain you, perhaps take you out of yourself to some other place. Writing is all about communication and if through my books I communicate with my readers, then that's great."

'Spring Music' is the first book by Elvi Rhodes I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Her description of the two daughters and son is wonderful and you become immersed in the whole family. I wanted to just keep reading this book and I will try more by Elvi Rhodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story! 28 Mar 2004
Format:Paperback
Just finished this book, and I really liked it! I would recommend this to anyone who has (or hasn't for that matter)read any of Elvi Rhodes other books! I have read several myself, and keep coming back for more, because this author is very good at relaying her characters circumstances and feelings. The reader feels sympathetic towards the characters,and somehow connected to them.I look forward to reading more from this author!

I have started to read this, whilst waiting for a relative to receive treatment in the outpatients of our local hospital. It appears to be up to her usual standard.
