Reflecting back on this book, if I had first heard about it via the blogging community I’m pretty sure I would’ve said it wasn’t for me. However, I spoke to the author directly and I’m so glad I did because it’s a beautiful, moving story that gently absorbs you into the lives of the characters.

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.

This incredible book is very much character based, and Florence Osmund is a brilliant wordsmith, who paints such a rounded picture of each one that the reader feels he is in the book with them.

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.

Clover seems a nice soft, pleasant plant to imagine being surrounded with. Lee Winekoop, the principle character is not surrounded by anything nice or pleasant really. he emerges from a dysfunctional family and strikes out to find himself and a way forward with his life. He unfortunately has a family servant that brings him news of his past that changes all that he held dear and true of his family. the reality is devastating news to him. I do recommend this ebook be read. there many families out there that can be described as dysfunctional and perhaps Lee's story might resonate with some of you. I rtecommend this ebook.

I really enjoyed this story and sympathized with Lee, a man who's been unsure of himself, having had the misfortune to be raised in a dysfunctional, upper-class family where he felt misunderstood, if not ignored. His father was critical and aloof and I cringed with compassion every time Lee interacted with him. As the story progressed, and as Lee slowly unraveled his awkward parents' secrets, he slowly began to create a circle of friends around him that, for the first time, helped him to feel at ease in his interactions with others. Predominantly, this story is about Lee's journey from childhood to adulthood, as we watch him stand on his own two feet and acquire self-assurance. Florence Osmund has done a wonderful job, creating characters that feel 100% real. The only downside is I felt the flow could be better at times, as some scenes/passages weren't necessary and could have been removed, especially in the second half of the book. Summing up, a great story and I shall look forward to reading more from this author.

After reading all the brilliant reviews for this book I was really looking forward to an absorbing enjoyable read , but was sadly disappointed. I found the writing very stilted and lacking in depth. As a result, it did not hold my interest enough for me to care about the fate of the main character and I did not bother to finish reading past the first few chapters, which, for me, is very unusual.

A reasonable read but found I did not really care a huge amount for the characters. It wasn't that they were not normal, but perhaps they were a little too normal. Rather predictable at times and laboured on his childhood problems in a bid to make us understand him. Saw it through to the end, so if you like small town America life with dysfunctional families, this is for you.

It is books like Red Clover and authors like Florence Osmund that are at the heart of really great literature. I found this on the free lists and couldn't believe my luck. I will be reading Red Clover again and again. If you are looking for a diamond in a sea of paste, congratulations, this slightly south of centre gem is what you seek.

I think this is one of the most thought provoking, inspiring books I have ever had the pleasure to read. Lee's journey took me from sadness to overwhelming joy and a sense of accomplishment and pure peacefulness. Florence Osmund, you are an amazing writer and I cannot wait to read more of your books.
