A nice story that drew me in to the character's lives and made me keep reading into the night. Felt like a good gossip over the neighbour's fence!

Brutally honest Netta is my fave character. She speaks her mind with perfect bluntness and gets away with it every time!

Fave quote (Netta to god-daughter Caroline):
" That you love him is not in dispute. Whether it is wise of you to do so is the question we have to face."

A workmanlike story, which did keep me entertained till the end. For me, there was very little 'feel' of the Auvergne to the tale - it could just as easily have been set in Surrey. A long way from Rose Tremain's 'Trespass'

Exiles is an interesting sequel to Advances. But one can't help wondering why the author changed Kate's husband's name from Tony to Alan. And I sometimes wish Anita' heroines were a little more like Netta!
