I read this first 20 years ago (yes, I am that old). And I remembered it so fondly because I was in France at the time and this was one of the few novels in English that I read while I was there. It was such a relaxing way to spend a day at the beach, doubly so because all the rest of the time I was there I was having to work in my second language, which I wasn't nearly so strong in. So, I reread it and it was a very different experience this time. It's still a really fun and well-written novel, but I remember having a very different reaction to the heroine when I was younger than I did this time around. Interesting how you change with age. And I'd forgotton how compelling the grandmother was.

Cheryl Without the grandmother, there wouldn't be much of a story.
