    " Not really my sort of book. The audiobook was part of Audible's advent calendar of deals. Slow, gentle and a break from my normal commuting listening. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Omi | 9/29/2013

    " The coziness of England,the sweetness of the little boy and the nuns made it likable. Infact, I liked this book a lot until about half through. After that it was kinda like unh. Swearing, an affair, an abrupt ending...not my favorite. "

    " This is the first book by Marcia Willett that I have read and she reminds me of Rosemund Pilcher whose novels I loved. Marcia literally paints beautiful pictures with words but the story moves annoyingly slowly. I may try another book by this author and give her a second chance. "

About the Author

Marcia Willett’s early life was devoted to the ballet, but her dreams of becoming a ballerina ended when she grew out of the classical proportions then required. She had always loved books, and a family crisis made her take up a new career as a novelist—a decision she has never regretted. She lives in a beautiful, wild part of Devon with her husband, where she loves to be visited by her son and his young family.
