"Athene Forster embraced the Sixties like few others. Nicknamed the Last Deb, she was spoiled, beautiful, and out of control. And within two years of her marriage, the rumours had begun again. Thirty-five years on, Suzanna Peacock finds refuge from her mother's shameful legacy in her shop, the Peacock Emporium. Within its magical walls she discovers not just friendship, and an escape from her troubled marriage, but the first real passion of her life. But the spectre of her mother still haunts Suzanna, setting in place a series of dramatic events. Only by confronting the past will she finally be able to face the future"-- Provided by publisher.

Not worth reading and a sorry representation of the author's writing. Author leaves her characters undefined and the reader guessing as to who is who and what is going on. It was a struggle to figure out what was happening. I don't want to struggle when I read a book. I read for pleasure, relaxation, intellectual stimulation. Where I once looked forward to reading the author's books, I now will pass over reading any others from her. Hugely disappointing.

This book is not of the same caliber as Jojo Moyes' other novels. The character development is very weak, and the main character is particularly unappealing. Although this is a new book, I believe it was written much earlier before Moyes' writing improved.

I have enjoyed this author's books, so I was happy when her latest novel came out. It took about two chapters to get into the plot, but once I did, it was just very interesting. I hope she hurrys up and writes her next novel!

I did enjoy this book but I much preferred Ms. Moyes more recent ones which include 'The Girl You Left Behind' which I gave 5 stars out of 5; 'The Ship of Brides' 4.5; 'Me Before You' 4; 'The Last Letter From Your Lover' 4; and 'One Plus One' 3.5.
