About the Author
Jenny Oliver wrote her first book on holiday when she was ten years old. Illustrated with cut-out supermodels from her sister's Vogue, it was an epic, sweeping love story not so loosely based Dynasty. Since then Jenny has gone on to get an English degree and a job in publishing that's taught her what it takes to write a novel (without the help of the supermodels).

It kind of reminded me of the TV program At Home with The Braithwaites Anyone even remember that from way back 15 or so years ago? I liked all the characters in it perhaps with the exception of Graham - the missing Dad, husband, Grandad. It tells the story of a somewhat estranged family who are suddenly all brought back together at their childhood home when Dad goes missing. There's never a dull moment, with the odd surprising revelation thrown into the mix. The root of the story is quite sad really but a great read.
Irritating characters, especially the incredibly childish and needy Amy and controlling Stella. Even the usual lure of a Cornish setting (vastly underused) didn't make this worth reading.
