Thumbs up from me!!, 9 Dec. 2003
An astonishing book that certainly brought some colour to my life. I loved it and found it hard to put down. I was fascinated by Kitty and her large unconventional family. Kitty’s synaethesia, where emotions and feelings were expressed as colours, added an extra dimension. As the story progressed various family secrets emerged adding greatly to my interest. The characters were all plausible, if somewhat eccentric, and I found Kitty and her soul-mate, James, particularly likeable. The climax of the book is very dramatic, although somewhat far fetched, but the reader is left to reach their own final conclusion.
As well as the plot and story line, I was very impressed with Clare Morrrall’s style of writing. I loved the descriptive passages, the dialogue and unusual turn of phrase.
This is a book I will savour and read again – can’t wait for the next one!!!
