I also thought that it was unnecessary to have a love story hard on the heels of bereavement, I'm sure grief is very personal but putting a fictionalised account in a book like this invites the reader to judge. I found it hard to believe that a man losing his whole family would be talking about marrying again after what, 7 or 8 weeks? It certainly didn't think make me think better of him and to my mind was unnecessary to the plot.
I did still enjoy the book, but it's not going to be my 'read every christmas' book.
The story is based around a handful of characters who come together through circumstance and build wonderful relationships, set mainly in Scotland but a little in Cornwall and London the book winds and weaves.
Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Lucy and Elfrida are up early whilst everyone else in the house sleeps, then suddenly Oscar speaks from his chair and Sam and Carrie have been miraculously spirited away to Buckly. - A
chunk is missing!!! There are similar errors in some of her other works, too. What a shame to spoil an otherwise brilliant read with basic errors.
