Kelly Rimmer is a brilliant author, she certainly knows how to bring her characters to life and provoke such feelings of compassion for Olivia and a real hatred for David and his wicked mother. The ending was so unexpected and emotional. Kelly certainly knows how to draw you in to the story. I would throughly recommend this author and this book

The tangled lives of three generations evoke a vanished world in this, the first volume of the Cazalet Chronicle. Home Place, Sussex, 1937. The English family at home.... For two unforgettable summers they gathered together, safe from the advancing storm clouds of war. In the heart of the Sussex countryside these were still sunlit days of childish games, lavish family meals and picnics on the beach.

I was very disappointed with this book. I found it slow and hard to get in to. I struggled with the first 10 chapters and then gave up. Sadly, as I have had the book some time and only just got round to listening to it, it’s to late to return it. Teaches me not to leave books to long before I listen to them

Susie did something that she knows she will always regret: giving her baby son up for adoption, to keep her infidelity secret from her family. Louise, Susie's daughter, feels the effects of that decision echoing down through the years - her mother has always been difficult, too strict with her but not strict enough with her sister, Grace, who is wild and out of control. And Danny, Susie's husband, adores her but has always sensed something wrong at the heart of their marriage.

In 1960s Bristol, a family is overshadowed by tragedy. While Susan, a typically feisty seven-year-old, is busy being brave, her mother, Eddress, is struggling for courage. Though bound by an indestructible love, their journey through a world that is darkening with tragedy is fraught with the kind of misunderstandings that bring as much laughter as pain, and as many dreams as nightmares. How does a child cope when faced with a wall of adult secrets?
