Jason, Stock Exchange trader, is dismissed from his city job for misconduct.  His wife, Libby, stands by him and they go back to his roots to help run his family’s B & B, his father having recently died.  Libby has to make the best of a bad job.  Her mother-in-law is highly critical, the B & B runs out of money and life is tough.  She takes in a young woman, Alice, who has lost her memory after a car accident and had the address of the B & B in her pocket.  Alice is an interesting character and obviously holds the answer to lots of the plot threads.  How it all comes together is beautifully done and nicely unexpected.  A good read. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
