My Review: This is a very difficult book to review. Not because I didn’t enjoy it as I thoroughly enjoyed it but because it’s impossible to write anything without giving away spoilers. All I can say is that it’s a love story with complications and as long as you can suspend your belief whilst reading, it really is a lovely, warm and emotional story. My advice would be simply don’t read any reviews, just read the book.
