A wonderful story,
This review is from: Richard Wilde (Kindle Edition)This was a lovely story, sensitively handled. Richard Wilde is at the end of a long life and eager to set down the story of his family's darker side, its secrets, before his impending death. He is looked after by a young woman, Sharon and her small son who come to live in his large old farmhouse to take care of him. The growing affection between Richard, Sharon and the boy is beautifully told.
Richard Wilde has been a farmer and a professional soldier in India and the tale of his life is gripping - I stayed up very late to finish it! His family is close but harbours sinister secrets and Richard is drawn in through his love of the family members. There are many poignant moments in this book and much to think about. I really enjoyed reading it and I thoroughly recommend it.
