Who says you can’t choose your family?
When Flora falls in love with Jack, suddenly she’s not only handling a very cranky teenager, but she’s also living in the shadow of Jack’s perfect, immortalised wife, Becca. Every summer, Becca and Jack would holiday with Becca’s oldest friends and Jack wants to continue the tradition, so now Flora must face a summer trying to live up to Becca’s memory, with not only Jack’s daughter looking on, but with Becca’s best friends judging her every move…
The more Flora tries to impress everyone, the more things go horribly wrong…but as the summer unfolds, Flora begins pushing her own boundaries, and finding herself in a way that she never thought she needed to.
And she soon learns that families come in all shapes and sizes.
A Superb Read!
There’s one thing I can be sure of with a novel from Sarah Morgan – it will be an excellent read and different to any other of hers!
When Flora meets Jack she falls hard. But Jack comes as part of a package; a widower, he has two daughters and the elder one is very protective of her current family unit and doesn’t welcome any outsiders. When it is proposed that Flora joins them on their annual holiday to England’s Lake District, she wonders if she can live up to Becca who was, apparently, the perfect wife and mother, and also best friends with the couple they are going to stay with. Can Flora manage to survive these three weeks?
Another terrific read from an author who really understands her characters! This is a wonderful novel, full of hidden secrets and misunderstandings and beautifully written, as always from Sarah. The characters really come alive on the page and it makes for an enchanting read. Perfectly true-to-life with lots of ups and downs along the way, and some of the funniest conversations I’ve ever come across! A superb read, one I highly recommend and absolutely earning all five sparkling stars!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
