When I picked this up and stepped back into the world of Ivy Lane it really felt like meeting old friends again. Again Cat ...more
And we get to the her conclusion in "Winter," and I have to admit I shed a few tears here. When, at the Christmas party, Tilly gets an award for all her contributions to the allotment, I just saw tears in my eyes - nice to see her in the best palce after everything she has gone through) and I feel like I went through all of it with her) And we also get the epilogue on the romantic status - and I admit I was a little bit shocked to find who she ends up with ...more
