I read many books but nothing before by Ann Widdecombe, it really was a
book that I could not put down.
Am looking forward to her other books now.
There is an odd catholic prayer for the dead’ which occurs every so often but which is, in fact, a response to a versicle and not a prayer in its own right.
There is a wise observation that ‘Time heals’ but it also ‘runs out’.
I never thought of Cecil as a name suitable for both genders.
As an adopted child myself with questions remaining unanswered I can identify easily with his quest for the small and important details that flesh out who he is and how he has become this person based on the foundation of his parents history. Anne Widdicomb is outstanding and at times it's hard to believe she has written such a poignant story with such depth and detail. This is not meant with any disrespect to a person who has an extraordinary life of her own - but i was concerned before reading her novels that they may be a little Barbara Cartland Esque! Having read her first novel that focused on our protagonist's mother I was assured this would be outstanding and I've not been disappointed!
