Engrossing and romantic - a perfect holiday read. (Rachel Hore)
Authentic and compelling, this story of love and betrayal explores some fascinating human relationships against the backdrop of World War II. I loved it. (Rosanna Ley)
Liz Fenwick's romantic story of twin sisters in wartime Cornwall is as heartbreaking as it is absorbing. I got so wrapped up in Adele's story that I read it in one day. (Kate Riordan)
I really enjoyed this book. It had a wonderfully intriguing and compelling story line and I found the wartime details especially fascinating. Together with Liz's usual beautiful evocation of the Cornish scenery this was a brilliant read. I recommend it. (Barbara Erskine)
A heart-tugging story of loss and recovery. (Fanny Blake, WOMAN & HOME)
This is a book about loss, misguided decisions, heartbreak and change, but it's also about hope, long-held secrets and friendships formed between the unlikeliest of people...it made me laugh out loud and cry a few times. I loved it. (NOVELICIOUS)
An unforgettable read. (Sam's Book Corner)

It took quite a while to get into as there are so many characters, set across the UK & USA. There were a couple that I never did get to grips with but that might just be me getting old!
It is an interesting enough story but how anyone can say they didn't see the "big reveal" coming beats me, it was very obvious the first time the sisters were even mentioned. Again, it might just be me but I didn't find that the reason Jack was so bitter was ever really explained. And there was only a throw away line which explained how Adele came to be Mrs. Rowse.
To sum up, too many characters, no big surprise and not enough information. Nice setting though.
In most cases those stars are a give-away for great entertaining. This one however was a bit of a disappointment for me.
