I have read all Ms Coles books to date and this would have to be the very very best I have read. It had me on the corner of my seat from the very 1st chapter and I read and read and read until the very last word. I was crying my eyes out in the end, so much so that I had to stop for a bit and compose myself before being able to finish this book. A wonderful story, fantastically thought out characters, descriptions that leave you breathless, a touch of humour and a tad of sadness. Left me wanting to re-read this one again and again! Can't wait for her new one to arrive on my doorstep!
