This is a truly beautiful book and written with fun, care and deep sensitivety. I am so glad that I bought and read it, it is one of the loveliest books I have read for a long time. Right from the start it draws you in to the scene and the characters seem to come alive. I found myself laughing out loud and also crying quite a few times. The story starts of slowly, but you soon find that you can't put the book down, at least I couldn't, but I also didn't want to get to the end !! Not a man's book maybe, but women should all love it and it is well worth the read. Can't praise it highly enough. It is just a fanastic story and really makes the arguement and makes you think, but not in a heavy way. LOVELY BOOK.
