I could not put this book down - I was very surprised to read that this is Christina McKenna first fiction - hope that there are many more books to read by this same author in the future.
Set in Ireland in the 1930s and 70s, James is a 40 year old orphan struggling with life and wanting a relationship, but doesn't know how to go about meeting a lady. Lydia, a 40 single lady living with her mother and knowing there is more to life wanting to discover more.
The back story - which is told every alternative chapter, of James is heartbreaking. This book was entertaining and emotional - I was hooked.
