3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting book...., 3 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Every Woman Knows A Secret (Paperback)
...but not one to read if you are feeling depressed. I have given it three stars because although I thought it was well written and an interesting [if rather unbelievable] story, it was very sad and there was a real sense of dreariness about the characters. This wasn't surprising, given the nature of the event at the beginning of the story but it did make it a bit of a dull read.

I thought all the characters were well portrayed and I could visualise them and their surroundings easily. However, I was deeply irritated that the baby was nick-named "Sock". What an abysmal nick-name [short for Socrates, apparently] - every time I read it, I felt cross!

Where Rosie Thomas certainly shines is in her descriptions of foreign countries [her more recent books are often set overseas] and in this one the sections set in Italy really bring some warmth and colour to this story.
