Summary

The Keep that beautiful, ancient family home where the Chadwick family had lived for generations is still a haven from the heartbreaks and storms of life.

Jolyon Chadwick, a famous television presenter, takes his new girlfriend Henrietta home to meet his extended family and also to meet Marie, the mother who deserted him and his father many years ago, now reappeared and seeming to want forgiveness. Jolyon, however, is not in the mood for forgiveness.

Easy to relate to!

Quite an emotionally deep book. This is simply a story about families and how complex they can be! Told through the grownup children of two broken homes and their families, it seems as if they are all going through a healing process together. Emotions are skillfully described, leaving the story to shine with a real feeling of truth. June Barrie excels as the narrator and sets the perfect tone, sometimes emotionally deep, sometimes light hearted. This is Marcia Willett at her best and I like the way she includes dogs as part of the family circle. It is particularly nice as it ends with feelings of hope for the future and I think it's so easy to relate to!
