To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I thoroughly enjoy reading Susan Hill's other works...and even recommend them to all who want a good read. This tale, however, smacked of self complimentary coziness that only Linda Snell of the Archers could command. I did get some good hints as far as recipes, when to plant what and how to avoid neighbours you don't want to talk to but I guess I am simply too urban a dweller to get any sense that her Apple Tree was Magic. Sorry...it struck a white, middle class chord with me that I've personally outgrown.
