This was a gentle tale of Enid and Bess, two sisters who are very close but who are very different people. Bess is outgoing and sociable and Enid likes routine and has Aspergers.
Both sisters struggle to find lasting love, but there might be something about this coming Christmas which is going to change things for both of them.
I really enjoyed this book, there are not many books which have someone with Aspergers in them and since I have a son with that condition, I was interested to see how Enid was characterised. The author did a good job of it; I wasn't quite as sure about the characterisation of Fred, who was Australian, lol. I also liked the secondary characters, friends of the two sisters who were more like family.
The epilogue tied up the loose ends very nicely and I think if you are looking for a nice read with a festive twist, you can't go far wrong with this book.
A delightful read - non stressful and enjoyable - just what you need over the holiday seasons.
Good portrayal of some of the aspects OF Aspergers - though there are so many levels or degrees on the autism spectrum. I particularly appreciated the inclusion of the references the author used - will certainly be reading these in my endeavour to understand more about this much misunderstood 'state of mind'..
