I loved this book. I read the "look inside" to get an idea what it was about, which was helpful, and then found it was a real pageturner which kept one guessing as to how the characters - all welldrawn - would develop, and how the plot would work out in the end. Very clever and enjoyable.
I became totally absorbed in this book by the end of the first chapter, I couldn't put it down and was quickly drawn into each of the characters lives. So well written the author is a wonderful story teller.
This is an enchanting and thought provoking book. The intensely sensual descriptions are reminiscent of the magic and mystic of Alice Hoffman and the congenial scenes made me think of Maeve Binchy at times. That said, this is an extremely original book which stays with you in both a literary and therapeutic way for a long time after reading. This book can literally change your life.
