An interesting story
I enjoyed the growing relationship between Gabriel and Rebecca. They were two people who were grieving in their own way but together they reached a sense of peace and understanding.
I can't really think of a book to compare it with. This isn't the first book I've read by Adele Clee and I find she usually puts her own twist on the storyline.
This isn't the best narration I've listened to, I always find that if the story is set in Britain then I want to hear a British voice narrating. As for pace, yes that was fine.
Well actually there were several, the moment when Rebecca and Gabriel realised they loved each other. There was another moment connected with the families but I don't want to give too much away.
I had read the book before but it was some time ago but I enjoyed listening to the story again. I've read quite a number of Adele's books and always enjoyed them. There is usually an unexpected twist to the story. I was gifted a this audiobook but have voluntarily reviewed it, This is my honest review.
