Format: Hardcover
This is a novel so heartbreaking........so touching it kept me glued to the pages just anticipating the outcome for these wonderful characters.
The novel is centred around three orphans: Teddy, Roberta, and Miranda, and as it is wartime in England, they are sent to Somerset to the adoptive care of two spinster sisters; Aunt Sophie and Aunt Prudence, living at a rectory. Although there is a war going on, their life with the sisters is idyllic and they are made to feel wanted and loved....more secure than they have ever imagined.
However, all good things soon come to an end, as the Committee for Evacuation moves in and Roberta is sent to another home.....seperating her from all the people she holds dear to her heart.
Life goes on and after the war the three meet under rare circumstances. Miranda is now a model and Teddy a Photographer. Roberta is working in Advertising. They have all changed tremendously, but the ties that bound them as youngsters, are ever present and the friendship continue from where they left off. See the stories they exchange with each other and where life takes them from this point.
A wonderful gift for an avid reader. I gave it five stars. *****

Format: Hardcover
After enjoying "The Chesnut Tree" by Charlotte Bingham, I was really eager to more by her. The next book that I choose was "The Blue Note" and have admitt that I was not that impress with it. Ms. Bingham seem to spend most of her time focusing on the two main female characters, while not doing much with the main male character. To be honest, if this had been my first Charlotte Bingham book it more than likely had been my last.

Format: Paperback
I should have enjoyed this book a lot more than I did. The plot is interesting, the settings and background well researched. But I found the dialogue extremely irritating, which distracted me from the book's good qualities. I didn't bother to count the number of sentences ending in "really I don't", "really he/she/it is" etc., but there are dozens; and far too many "do you see"s. This is a trait that has ruined other authors for me, notably Barbara Taylor Bradford and Hammond Innes, and I would have thought that good editing would pick it up. Disappointing, and a waste of a good storyline.
