LoveReading Says

January 2012 Book of the Month.

Shortlisted for the Galaxy Popular Fiction Book of the Year Award 2011.

Rachel has always been at the centre of her family of three sons but now the youngest is getting married. She must learn to adjust to the changing dynamics within the various new relationships. This is the author at her absolute best, a first rate read.


Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 17 March 2011.


The Lovereading view...

Joanna Trollope cleverly weaves together an involving family drama in which the matriarchal mother finds herself suddenly bereft of her 3 sons as they marry and their wives try to create some distance between them and the mother-in-law.  A power struggle develops and as it does people are going to get hurt.  As with all of Joanna Trollope's novels they are packed with emotion and the characters incredibly well drawn.
