The setting of Westenbury in Yorkshire was glorious, the characters were all spot on hilarious, serious, modern women. The families were complicated - there were yours, mine and ours multiplied over and the story could not be called women's fiction because I think men will enjoy the story too.
The ramifications of a village life, the handsome widower now being eyed by many women in the village, he is rich and handsome and also a kind soul. Then there is a bunch of attractive professional women around too. I sometimes felt in the story that it was a little too crowded with characters and got a tad confusing.
Overall the story was entertaining and just what anyone needs after a dose of heavy reading. Descriptive and engaging.

This sounds like another fun one. Too many characters can be confusing sometimes, so I get that. I am glad you enjoyed it overall though.ReplyDelete
