This is a good book. I bought it before Christmas but only started reading it in 2014. It has a little bit of Binchey qualities in it; the characters Sam, and Hope are sisters who are different and the story switches from one to the other. There are also two other characters Virgina who is a recent widow and Nicole who lives with her mum,sister and has an interfering(?) grannie .
Each story moves you differently. And you find yourself cheering each person on separately. And I was just as happy to move from one character to the other. The end is a good one. ( Important for me). A mark of a good book is...I feel a little sad when I finish the last page.
