I absolutely loved this book. It is poignant, interesting, perceptive, riveting and laugh-out-loud funny. Like the heroine's St. Bernard (foisted off onto her as a "Cornish terrier"), Harriet's self-knowledge keeps on growing. Victoria Clayton's books have charm, and none more so than this one. Because it is written in the first person, we learn about Harriet through her own eyes, realizing by the end of the book just what a loveable person she is.
Incidentally, Victoria Clayton's books should be read in order, as each one allows the reader to learn what happened after the end of the preceding one.
Enjoy! All readers of Rosamunde Pilcher and Marcia Willett will love this author.
