Having to endure a life full of criticism and isolation, one would assume Lee, the main character, would be more damaged and unable to cope with adult life. Instead, he is inspiring: generous, helpful and, in the end, wonderfully astute as he negotiates life at its very best . . . and worst.
At times I felt desperately sorry for Lee, wanting to soothe his child-self and move him on to happier times. The characters surrounding him are bittersweet – a few drag him down, whilst other lift him up – and it’s with them that you begin to witness his transition into a man learning to be comfortable in his own skin. It’s an uplifting tale that left me feeling a sense of peace once finished – although I would love (and hope) to see Lee’s story move on even further in a follow-up novel – and I encourage others to read this book and enjoy his journey.

The central character is Lee Oliver Winekoop, who is undoubtedly moulded by the complex characters within his family. His emotions are beautifully described, and so understandable that a strong empathy is quickly built with the reader.
Lee is a true victim of serious wealth and a clear example of the cliché, money can’t buy you love. His family may be awash with the stuff, but it is no benefit to him as a child, and he is not adept at dealing with it as an adult.
What he really suffers from is a dearth of love, with no real idea of why that should be.
Lee’s journey through life, and the obstacles that it throws at him, is the very essence of this book.
Florence Osmund writes at a perfect pace, and with a very pleasing style, and once you pick up this book, you will find it hard to put down.
