I read this entire series some years ago. It remains one of my favourite relaxing reads. I would not call it literary fiction more like a box of chocolates. Nice and comforting. Can't wait to read the next book.
never heard of Maggie O'farrell. What a mistake. And I regard myself as educated/ well read. !! What an excellent book. Structure and language were faultless. The characters remain in the memory, the test of a outstanding novel.
