At times I found Anna's experience at times tearfully moving, an engaging story which will keep you reading. I can't understand why Rosie Alison hasn't written another novel, at least not one I could find.

Like a fair few reviewers here I was disappointed overall with this book. The most effective parts of the story were the early scenes of Anna being evacuated to Yorkshire, but some of the later parts struck me as almost risible - particularly the crash, and Anna's return to the house as a young mother.

I also felt the writing tended to be over-wrought. There were several points where I wanted to shout 'Get on with it' - at the author as much as the characters!

Interesting. Quite obviously a first novel from a very well-educated mind. Spoilt for me by this very fact - the ideas were there but not at all developed maturely, either in terms of use of imagery or plot development. This could have been much more than just another modern novel. Too many grand ideas and not enough attention to the beauty of what she was saying. Pity... but give this writer 20 years and she may be something to look out for.

This was a fantastic book that I couldn't put down. Its an easy read but a beautiful story and you can really relate to the characters. Highly recommended, but have tissues to hand.

This beautiful novel is about love and covers both shallow, selfish love as well as deeply profound, lasting love. Thanks

Easy to read but not overwhelming in any way.

Agree with other less favourable reviews. It's an ok story but not at all memorable. Not really developed in enough detail to make the idea believable
