Ever since listening to Amy Snow, I have been waiting to download Tracy Rees' next book. My only regret is that I didn't listen to it slower. With the exception of sleeping, I literally listened all the way through. I believe I can officially declare this my most favorite book of 2016. It was even better than Amy Snow! The writing was gorgeous, the characters vivid and so realistic, the descriptions of Cornwall absolutely breathtaking. The story had so many ups and downs, weaving together an intricate tale of family loyalty, complicated love, obligation, loss and self-discovery. Once again Imogen Church did a fantastic job narrating this novel. She was perfect. I would give this ten stars if I could. Don't pass this book up! The only downside now is waiting for her next. Brava, Ms. Rees. This book will stay with me for many weeks.

I do so enjoy a good story, and this is such. Beautifully narrated, wonderfully spun, I find myself weeping and laughing in turn. Well done indeed.

Tracey Rees is a wonderful author - both this and Amy Snow are delightful books. They are elegant, funny and relaxing, I would highly recommend them

I enjoyed this book enormously! The narrator sounded very true to the character and the story was engaging. The beginning was a bit slow, the in depth descriptions of her life on the moors seemed to drag on a bit in some areas with little relevance to the overall story. The relationships were imperfect and believable, and the flow of the story was good. I admit the ending left me a bit cold, but it also left me considering the impact of our choices and relationships on our life paths. I fell in love with certain characters and would love to see them explored more in the future!
An enjoyable read of the experience of Florence being reclaimed by the Grace family after the death of her parents and grandmother. The mix of Cornwall rugged life and London society is makes for an interesting tale.
