I found it extremely difficult to put this book down. The story had me gripped right from the start. I shed tears at quite a few parts. Fabulous book to read.

Such a wonderful way to get back to Barbara as I enjoy her most. A book that I found very difficult to put down, captivating story with an abundance of emotions in varying situations. An absolute joy to read.

The story is about a relatively wealthy family comprising mostly successful and caring individuals. The novel is centred around US based Justine and her twin Richard. Richard and Justine have not seen their maternal grand mother in 10 years having been informed by their mother that their grand mother had passed away in an air accident. Justine intercepts a letter from a friend of her grandmothers which leads her to believe she may still be alive. The novel then describes the search for their grandmother who they believe may be living in either London or Istanbul, and the discovery of family information from her past dating from the second world war.

As a mystery story with romantic under tones, the style of the novel is more akin to Mills and Boon rather than Dan Brown. It is set in a relatively ideal world where the characters are not limited by having to go to work daily, nor care for aged/or sick family members, and who have servants to care of the daily grind. The main characters are on the whole very positive and are deeply caring about each other, except for their mother who they dislike intensely. The positive aspects continue with some love at first site romance, and with all `good characters' having a happy ending.

Some of the characters actions and how they interpret situations are some what fare fetched. Descriptions of Istambul and Berlin (during the war era) were interesting, however I don't have enough knowledge of either to comment on if they reflect fact or are more based on fiction.

For those who like an emotionally charged light story, with an escapist feel from everyday life, then this will be an ideal read. However for those who like a `tell it as it is mystery story' with highly credible characters and situations based on most folks idea of normality then this is probably of lesser interest.
