A gentle love story set in London across 12 months of the year.
A great reminder too of how difficult it is to live in London on a nurse’s salary or even that of a publisher’s operational organiser.
I loved the walks around and about as this is something I like to do too. There is so much hidden history that we forget about – Battle Bridge for instance – not a Civil War battle as so many thing, but Boudicca’s last stand, and then the places where there were spas – eg Sadler’s Wells. And if you look closely, you can find the rivers that used to flow into the Thames and that the Victorian’s culverted over but one still is visible under glass – if you know where to look. And I do!
And yes, Little Venice is pretty but for me Camden Lock and the canals further along are better – Little Venice is too touristy and well aware of its idyllic setting..
So back to the book.
Nicely written, in a good style, gently telling how people learn to know each other and that friends make great romance buddies.
Cozy but understanding the life of the singleton at 30 and the difficulties of making ends meet when you change careers later in life.
