I enjoy all of Josephine Moon's books, but I think this is her most touching. The reader can pretty much guess what will happen, but interestingly not WHY things are happening and there are plenty of twists and turns before the satisfying ending. What has happened to Lara in her past is slowly and cleverly teased out, and you are cheering for the power of resilience and perseverance. I cried at the end, good tears, I think it is a great book that makes you laugh or cry.

I quickly became caught up in the life of Lara, both her past and her present. My heart went out to her over the domestic violence she suffered at the hands of her former “boyfriend”. The description was believable without going into too much gory detail. Having studied psychology I saw what was happening perhaps earlier than the author intended, but that did not detract from the story. In fact, Lara’s past added a certain suspense that only increased as I progressed through the book.
The ending was a little twee - the perfect conclusion for a romance novel.
However, what I did not expect from reading this book was a sudden desire to visit Italy in the future and sample the food of the country. The detail was amazing; I could actually visualise the countryside and I found my mouth watering at the various dishes made - all from scratch - and wanting to sample them for myself. It describes a simpler way of life, for the most part, that is more relaxed than our hectic lifestyle; where people take the time to make their meals and savour them while eating. Where people enjoy the company of family and friends just because they can and big family meals are the norm.
Thoroughly enjoyed this and thoroughly recommend.
