This review is from: The Fortnight in September (Paperback)
This is a wonderful book. Such a joy to read. I loved the descriptions of the preparation and building excitement and concerns about the holiday. Nothing very significant happens on the holiday but I felt as though I grew to know this kind and thoughtful family very well. Their thoughts and views about every day things are very similar to those we may have today. There is an underlying sadness to the enjoyment of their holiday and I found myself wanting to continue the story once they returned home. Would the son find a more fulfilling job? Would they all go back to the same B&B next year? What changes would the family face over the coming year? Simply wonderful.
