To those who know her books this is typical Joanna Trollope territory: the exploration of family dynamics under stress, in this case, the anguish and anger caused by the death of a partner complicated by the fact that he has a wife and son from an earlier relationship. The author deftly evokes the feelings of the children of the two partnerships the man has had and the antagonism between the two mothers of his children. Fenella Woolgar does a splendid job of narration and to my ears caught the various regional accents to a tee. I'd categorize this book has having more appeal to women with a special resonance to those of us who are second wives.
