It’s set in a small village of Tindledale, with the cottage being well hidden & difficult to find.
There is plenty of humour as the story unfolds, but sadness also.
Themes include grief, loss, love, guilt, single-parenting, step-parenting, dementia, world war 2, all woven into a family story spanning generations.
I couldn’t put it down once I’d started, needed to know what happened to all the characters. I sympathised with them, laughed and cried with them too. They are so well characterised that I could see them in my mind.
I’m not going to tell you what the secret is, you must read the book to find out!
