There are problems with the writing style too. Firstly people do not use terms of endearment such as 'my love' or 'my dear' at the end of almost every sentence as appears in the text. Usually only once or twice in a whole conversation in my opinion.
Also it could be argued that the author doesn't have much experience of older people. An 87 year old is hardly likely to have a job hairdressing at the local old people's home at that age. Especially as the said 87year old couldn't have a decent length conversation without becoming tired and needing a nap! Perhaps that might seem a bit picky, but it all contributes to the enjoyment of the book.
On the plus side it was cleverly constructed and flowed nicely. Just wish it had been a bit more of a page-turner.
The story is good, linking history with the present and demonstrating how past decisions can have so much impact on future lives. However, 99% of the plot was obvious, and the writing was what I would call basic.
It was an easy read, and a nice little love story, but certainly not an epic tale.
