Here there is much to admire, especially depiction of the profound sense of loss at the death of someone so close. The spirit of Natalie's remarkable mother movingly makes its presence felt throughout all that is to come. Then there is Natalie's grandfather, struggling so doggedly against the dementia causing him to become so "frayed round the edges". In fact several people here greatly appeal - especially resourceful builder Peach Gallagher and his delightful little daughter Dorothy.
Yes, so much is so good, but some readers may have doubts about certain other aspects. Here is a novel at its best with feet firmly on the ground. Sadly it ventures into increasingly fanciful contrivances - not least with the introduction of a character who completely fails to convince.
From the start the outcome is predictable, but impact would be greater if reached by a route that did not stray from reality.
