Her best yet - an absolute must read,
This review is from: The Tapestry of Love (Hardcover)
I've enjoyed all Rosy Thornton's books so far but I have to say that Tapestry of Love is my favourite by quite a way. There is always warmth and empathy in her novels - for family, for people and places - but Tapestry of Love for me, was on a different level to the others. Essentially, Tapestry of Love is about a divorced Englishwoman moving to the rugged Cevennes mountains and discovering new relationships and a new way of life. I could feel the bitter Cevennes wind and the summer heat, smell the earth, taste the cooking (there's a lot of cooking and nurturing in this book.) The characters are as ever, finely drawn but to me, more vivid, more alive and more sympathetic than those in her earlier novels. There is also a beautifully developed romance and some surprises I never saw coming... but to say more would give away spoilers.
I know this was my favourite Thornton novel because it made me really *feel* - and that doesn't happen to me very often when I read books these days.
