Summary

Can you ever re-create that first great love?

Victoria Bradshaw fell in love with London playwright Oliver Dobbs when she was just 18. But he left her and disappeared from her life. Now, years later, he is a widower standing on her doorstep with his two-year-old son in his arms. And Victoria is foolish enough to want to take him back. Their early spring journey to a castle in Scotland becomes an odyssey of emotional discovery....

Can they rekindle their love in the tranquil beauty of the countryside, or will Oliver's career dictate another course?

Sweet story

This was written in 1978. It has social mores in it that remind me of my childhood. It is of a different era but i enjoyed it so much because of that.
Great characters beautifully read.

Great story

Another wonderful book by Rosamunde Pilcher. Her writing is brightening my life during lockdown. The characters are so true to life and her descriptions of scenery and surroundings excellent.
