From the Back Cover
Some journeys are the loneliest to make...
Three strangers are thrown together by chance. It’s an encounter which is destined to change all of their lives forever.
Ben Morris experiences an unsettling sensation when he comes to the aid of Lucy Baker and her daughter Mary, intrigued by the story that lies behind their frequent visits to the local graveyard.
Later, at their home, an old Edwardian house to which he is sent, Ben is invited into a place suffused with secrets of the past. His instinct that Lucy harbours something momentous proves true as she begins to relate a tale of passionate love and an extraordinary sacrifice.
Lucy’s story of Barney Davidson, his family, and her girlhood, with its tragic events, is a spellbinding one and one which, even in the present day exerts a powerful influence...--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. See all Product Description

I read through it VERY quicky. I liked her style of writing, the characters were lovable, I found the book very intriguing from the very first page, but I do have to admit I found the plot somewhat far fetched.
Why would Barney not go to America, set his family up for a better future, and die happy knowing their lives had improved and they would survive when he left them.
I thought there would be some deeper, dark secret.
Having said all that, I will be now moving straight onto the follow-up 'Journeys End' to find out what happened to the other characters :-)
The style of writing is good as always, hence the 2 stars, butI found the plot totally unreal and unbelievable. This is a very talented author but this story I found irritatingly disappointing.
Once the saga of how Lucy ended up a rich old woman began to emerge,found myself wanting to skip pages as far too much detail about trivial things.
Also thought it was a ridiculous story line about the decline with in a fortnight of going to start a new life in America for the main character going out womanising and drinking,when he was supposed to adore his wife,why would he put
His family through all of that,and want her to go over seas with his boss,too far fetched to enjoy.
