A bittersweet story,

This review is from: The Proof of Love (Kindle Edition)
From the start when Spencer Little rides his bicyle through the Lake District and stops and asks for a bed and food in return for a hard days work, I was gripped by this wonderful tale of awkward shyness, friendship, love and passion. Spencer's character slowly unfolds, he befriends Alice the lonely daughter of the farm couple who give him work, he's slowly accepted by the suspicious, gossiping villagers and he falls in love. This is a wonderful read set in the 70's in the summer of that terrible heatwave, I just couldn't put it down and loved it from start to finish, although the ending did come as a shock. I would highly recommend.
