Read in October, 2008

Brent-Dyer's only romance written for an adult audience, and her only book set in the Tyneside area of her birth. As with other non-Chalet books and connectors set in the UK, I felt a definite sense of Oxenham in this one: moreso because of the country dancing that was part of this book.

It's unfortunate that the ending is rushed, as I would have liked the reconciliation between Jean and Kenneth (talk about Oxenham-like names!) to be better explained. But in general it's a beautiful, gentle story. The India references are highly helpful, and basically, I'm probably going to have to get my own copy of this (assuming Bettany Press still have it). Very glad I finally read it.
