it was amazing
bookshelves: favorites, historical

I have added this book to my favourite books, I loved it. It was perfectly written and although not much really happens, you learn the stories of four different characters who are all very different and have very different backgrounds, and really get drawn into their worlds.
It details the struggle an English lady when her husband had not returned from the war, and to makes ends meet she has to rent a rooms out to a Jamaican couple which is frowned upon by people in the neighborhood. Brilliant, and will definately read more from this author.
