Reviewed in Australia on 15 October 2018
I was super impressed with this story, the second I've read by Helene Young, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Australian fiction, especially those family saga-type novels with secrets handed down over generations.
I thought the characters were brilliantly drawn - I was instantly invested in Ivy, Felicity and Georgina, and the description of settings were gorgeous, but not drawn out. I felt the author had a way of summing up a setting or a person with few words, yet painting the perfect picture.
Character growth within the story was believable and moving, with Felicity's storyline particularly striking home for me - probably because we're the same age. It can be confronting to read about characters getting older, because I look ahead and think about ageing, and health, and family, and it's not always a thought filled with sunshine and lollipops!
The other book of Helene Young's that I've read is Half Moon Bay. I enjoyed that too, but for me, Return To Roseglen was at another level.
Super effort!
