Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really feel like they've made a mistake with the cover of this book. I was expecting random average chick lit, bit of romance, happy ending etc. This is actually a very cleverly written and intriguing tale about a young woman uncovering her families long hidden secrets.
On the day of her grandmother's funeral, Natasha Kapoor's life is at an all time low. Her business is heading for bankruptcy, her marriage is on the rocks. Her Grandfather gives her a few pages of her Aunt Cecily's diary, written in the weeks before she tragically died in an accident at the age of 15. As Natasha reads the diary she is swept back into the past, finding out perhaps more than she wanted to about her family's past.
A really interesting and compelling read. Much more thought provoking than I had bargained for when I chose this book.

I totally agree with your review of this book. When I started reading it, I was expecting a very light, fluffy read. I was pleasantly surprised to find, as I think you did, that there is a lot more depth to this book than the cover suggests. Not having read any of Harriet Evans' other books I was not sure what to expect, but it has made me more inclined to read her other novels.
