THE REAL THING by CATHERINE ALLIOTT

The Real Thing


Although it could be called a romance this is more about family - the complicated and straight forward relationships that go to bind a family together and how though we may not forgive someone "outside" we are always willing to go the extra mile to forgive someone within the family.

We have our housewife  stay at home Mum 30ish two young kids, devoted husband barrister. We have a background of a close knit sibling almost 30 unmarried. A dominant father and a submissive mother who seems to give in for the sake of peace. We also have as a side kick a rather interesting cousin and her parents. Altogether three kids form the whole parcel of family.

Set in a family pile in Scotland where the family trek for holidays we also have the smouldering ex  boyfriend who for the last twelve years has been holding out hope that our now Mum but erstwhile girlfriend Tessa will come back to him. A few fairly interesting, eye brow raising questions do come up but it all seems to end well.

A very simple story and just right for the lazy Sunday I have had! My visitors have gone away for the weekend leaving behind heaps of washing to be done but the house is quiet so reading got done!
