I decided to re-read the first 3 books,Looking Forward (The Chadwick Family Chronicles) Holding on (The Chadwick Family Chronicles) Winning Through (The Chadwick Family Chronicles). As these were written from 1998, I had forgotten them. I have kept the paperbacks and in each of these on the title page it states 'The Chadwick family Chronicles' a sadly missing piece of information from this hardback edition. Also the different parts (in the previous novels)were dated which was helpful to get a timeline.
Having re-read all 3 previous stories I found that the prodigal wife actually reminisces alot of the time on the past, so for any readers who have not read the others this stands alone quite well.
Without giving the story away, I found it a bit strange that it opened with and revolved around 2 new characters that had never been mentioned before in the other books. The previous 3 stories seemed to flow together better.Read more ›
The saga of Fliss, Mole and Susanna, recounted in a previous trilogy, was mentioned quite often in passing and enhanced by some of Hal's memories. It was good to "catch up" with the family some years after the events of the original books, and also interesting to see new characters, whether Chadwicks or not, being developed.
I for one would welcome a continuance of the story, as Jo and Henrietta start their lives together and the secondary theme regarding Maria and Jolyon's relationship develops futher.
this book ties up all the ends very neatly. Well written lots of good characters and a little bit of romance and mystery all these things add up to a good book
I'll be passing this book on.

If you like Marcia Willet's family sagas you will not be disappointed. It reintroduces the Chadwick family and focuses on a different family member. Enjoyable beach reading!Published 12 months ago by DDWatson
