A sad story of a family loss. and the on-going impact of just what happened five years before, and how the parents of Audrey coped.
I am not always a fan of literature set in the 1950s as it is some ways not far enough away to count as historical, but not near enough to be contemporary, yet this novel was so well written that it got over that reluctance. It described the Cotswolds well – I have visited often and so am familiar with it, and even contemplated living in one of its villages, but far too expensive now!
I enjoyed the story and thought the style good. I am not sure though that I would read another novel set in this period.
