"Genuinely heartwarming. Very funny and the characters really come alive." (Lincolnshire Echo)
"Romantic, inventive, and riveting....James at her best." (Good Book Guide)
This is mainly about Genevieve Baxter, the eldest of three sisters. Through a series of flash backs, into her memory since she was a child, you gradually get to know, all about her life. And when the story is set, there emerges the dramas of a
complicated family. Paradise House is a well structured tale, using the names Angel Sands, Angel Cottage and Paradise House(of course)to add charm. The narrator, Jenny Agutter, is a little bit wooden, although she's generally okay.
"Enjoyable and heart-warming family story"
The precis given for this book is misleading. The part played by his daughters in trying to solve their father's marital problems is a small thread in the main story which is mainly about those three daughters and their lives and loves, particularly that of Genevieve, the oldest daughter. Badly betrayed by her two best friends in her late teens she has chosen to live a somewhat secluded life, looking after her father and her sisters, in the B & B which they have decided to run in Paradise House. When her teenage boyfriend re-appears she has to re-evaluate her life and choices in a story that is both enjoyable and heart-warming.
