Summary

Nearly 25 years after a tragic accident forced Mim to give up her successful career as one of the world's leading ballerinas, history is repeating itself. Daisy, Mim's most talented former pupil, is suffering from injuries, and she, too, will have to rethink her career. Mim arranges for Daisy to take a holiday in Cornwall, in the strange and beautiful house on the edge of Bodmin Moor where Mim's brother, Roly Carradine, is living.

Daisy, starting a new love affair, has difficulty concentrating on her future, but her devastating self-awareness enables Roly to take a fresh look at his relationship with the newly widowed Kate Porteous. Meanwhile, the arrival of Roly's ex-wife forces their son, Nat, to confront some unfinished business. Roly, Kate, Daisy, and Nat must all find resolution in the beauty and peace of the Cornish countryside.

Such a good book!

As always a great read from Marcia Willett in her own beautiful style and read wonderfully too.
The storyline held me and moved me with beautiful thoughts and descriptions.

Overpopulated

So many characters in this story. It's easy to lose track. Central characters are not memorable. And the narrator's voice grates. Disappointing.
