The Girl in Room Fourteen
on 2 October 2013
Cecile has made a success of her life and bringing up her young daughter, Donatella. For the last time she is attending the lemon festival in the hope of meeting the man who is Donatella's father. The story behind Cecile's sadness is told in flash backs.
I enjoyed this short story but felt the ending let it down a little in some ways. It just didn't seem to wholly fit the rest of the story. It could be that I was just in the wrong mood for it. I like the author's writing and I think I shall be looking at reading some of her other books.
