Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 March 2018
I have been promising myself that I would finally get around to reading older books from some of my favourite authors, and Jojo Moyes was top of my list. I kept my fingers crossed that this one would live up to her later books...and for me, yes, it did! Quietly compelling, I enjoyed the array of characters and drama surrounding them and found Moyes' writing as beautiful as ever.

Recently widowed Isabel has been left in a difficult financial situation by her deceased husband and can no longer afford to keep the swish London home she now occupies with her two children. Fortunately, she has been left property by a distant uncle and moves away to 'The Spanish House' in rural Norfolk. Run down and sadly lacking in amenities, it is nothing like the finery her and the children have been accustomed too. Isabel is also unaware that somebody else wants the house...badly! So badly in fact, that he is willing to stop at nothing in his attempt to own the property.

Full of family secrets and well crafted characters, I was drawn into the well woven, nicely paced plot and hope her other older titles are as good.
