Description

Martha is in a stable satisfying marriage and Willow is finally with a man that is viewed as perfect boyfriend material by the rest of the family. But the one thing she has no control over is falling pregnant despite having been married ten months and both her and Tom keen for children. Whilst the three women share a very close relationship, there are things that are kept hidden, especially by Naomi. Fully rounded, living with pasts that affect their current actions, the relationships between them all give an insight into the human condition.

Martha is horrified and prickly at first, but chilled out Willow is open minded and happy for her Mother. She tries to enlist Willows help who is not so sure and feels her mum should stay in their family home. Emotions boil over with these woman and soon there are secrets being told that Naomi had kept a long time about her husband, their father, add to this the stress with trying to fall pregnant for Martha and what is happening to Willow, this story becomes very emotional but a story that is told beautifully with care and thought, it takes in issues that are very prevalent in today’s world. This was such an easy book to read, and the setting made it a perfect summer read to get stuck into! The author also convincingly captured the range of emotions and tensions which can arise when a widowed parent begins a new relationship, only to find their happiness threatened by disapproval from adult offspring.

Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). Whilst there are some emotional issues explored in this story, I thought the ending was uplifting and optimistic. Although the story does not fully take place by the coast, scenes at Naomi’s house always felt shrouded in a calmness that I could never feel with Willow and Martha’ story.

The idyllic setting of the harbour village of Tilsham on the Sussex coast and Anchor House with its beach access contrasted sharply with the slightly darker undertone to the story. Perhaps because Naomi is presented as so caring and selfless, in contrast to Willow and Martha’s sometimes selfish or erratic behaviours.

Any family meetings from then on also include Rick because Willow has moved in with him, into his immaculate flat. Not so easy for Naomi who has happy memories in her home, along with the fact that she's now making a life for herself, and it's fascinating to see how that relationship with her daughters plays out. Erica James’ writing appears so effortless, and from the first paragraph, I was drawn into the story. Biography: Erica James is the author of twenty-three internationally bestselling novels, with recent Sunday Times Top Ten bestsellers including Swallowtail Summer, Coming Home to Island House and, most recently the hardback bestseller, Letters from the Past.
