Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 July 2018
I found a lot of of this book quite irritating and far fetched. I wanted to give Isabel a good talking to. Even allowing for her bereavement, financial predicament and artistic temperament. Byron I loved , Thierry was endearing,Laura was weak, in fact the strongest character in the book was Kitty. The plot like the house was full of holes but by far the most ludicrous thing in the story was the frequent mentions of the lack of a socket to plug the fridge in. Isabel was so lacking in gumption that she couldn't move the fridge to another room with a socket ??!! Food hanging in netting on exterior walls. Isabel playing her violin whilst the house falls down!!!! All a bit silly for me.
