very good story that kept you guessing up to the end
It's a dual time frame novel featuring Emily in the present day and Cressida in the 1960s. Emily is married to Will and seemingly has the perfect life, big house, two beautiful children, lots of money. But suddenly her world comes crashing down around her and life will never be the same. As she faces financial ruin and a huge betrayal, a mysterious beneficiary leaves her a remote house that is her salvation.
Cressida is a naive young woman in the 1960s who dreams of something better than marriage to a suitable husband approved by her father, she wants to make a difference. Taking a teaching job she realises this is going to be much more difficult than she anticipated, at the same time her controlling father has arranged for her to have her portrait painted. What he hadn't planned on was for Cressida to fall in love with the artist, Ralph, particularly as he is already married. But as Ralph and Cressie's love develops, so does the strange and frightening behaviour of Ralph's wife Catherine.
The two threads are linked of course and it all comes together at the end. It's an easy read, and I enjoyed it but not as much as the author's previous novel The Winter Folly. I did wonder at the relevance to the story of Emily's brother Tom's decline, it seemed slightly pointless, and Cressida soon lost interest in teaching so I wasn't really sure why these issues were included, maybe for padding of the plot which was possibly a little bit thin. But not a bad book by any means, I will certainly read more by Lulu Taylor.
I didn't warm to the male characters as much as the women in this book and didn't feel that Emily's love story was as exciting as Cressida's but I enjoyed it nonetheless and thought it was exceptionally well written and a dream to read.
It had me intrigued as to what the final outcome would be -
Not as mysterious or gripping as WINTER FOLLY her last book.Still an easy romance."
