This is a rich and sumptious novel, which draws you into its Lawrentian prose. In the first and major part of the tale, the heroine, Una, is trapped in a difficult marriage, with mysterious
threats on all side which may destroy her. The extent of her powers is revealed to the reader slowly, as she begins to search for a way out of her situation, so that she may become more truly herself.
In the second part, Una's granddaughter, Ellie, battles with her own addictions and tried to come to terms with her family history and her own magical story.
One to savour slowly, like good chocolate or a fine wine. I can thoroughly recommend this one, people! And I'm looking forward to the third in the trilogy - no pressure then, Nell ...
Wow! I didn't realise it was available! Thanks for the review; now I must get a copy. I can't wait.
Thanks for the great review Anne. The final book is progressing nicely, but will take a year or two I think...
Nell, there will be as much pleasure in the anticipation as in the 'savouring', I'm sure!
Joan, thanks, that's lovely to 'hear'!
Glad it's on its way, Nell - something for us to look forward to!
