Jun 03, 2020 rated it it was amazing
I bought this book quite some time ago now and finally got round to reading it.

This is one of the best things I have read.

It is a moving story about love and loss. The book explores the reality of marriage for a lot of people and the sense of what might have been.

Even though the ending was sad and tragic, I found this book an immensely satisfying read.

Will be looking out for more books by this author.

Such an amazing novel about love , it shows that there is no specific age for love & u can meet your true love at any place , at any time and the most important at any age . (( the end made me cry , it was so touching )) .

Angela Lambert used to be one of my favourite authors back in the day, (No Talking After Lights), so when I found 2 of her titles , in a charity shop, which I had not read I looked forward to rekindling the old magic. While I still enjoy her style of writing etc I found this story rather dated.

Two generations walk a dangerous tightrope between fidelity and parenthood, each guarding past and present secrets, the revelation of which, in the heat of passion, may destroy the carefully erected boundaries of tradition and propriety. A hoghly readable tale about love and loss. Duty and desire.

This book had quite a predictable storyline. The dialogue was very stilted and this made it difficult (for me) to engage with the characters.
