The story is interesting, with vivid characters, imaginative ideas, the typical Wynne Jones romance, and her characteristic combination of real-life and fantasy, the mundane and the fantastic. Highly recommended to all fans.
This book was left unfinished in her last illness and finished by her sister. I couldn't see the join when her sister took over.
It's wonderful to have this book even though she is gone from us. Her humanity and wit still shine through.
I truly enjoyed this, and am only sorry that it is the last by one of my favourite authors, and that there will be no more.
