Plot summary: Tom Knelston is married to Alice (a former nurse) – they both share the same ideals and seem to be perfect for each other, until Tom unexpectedly bumps into an old childhood acquaintance (Dina Southcott) and they embark on an affair. Diana is, in many ways, the epitome of what Tom doesn’t not like, but she offers irresistible temptation. When a child becomes ill, difficult decisions have to be made…
What we liked: This is a great book for a Sunday afternoon read on a rainy day – where you want to settle into a big comfy chair and read a good book. The story is well written and interesting and will certainly help you while away a few hours – it’s a good one to immerse yourself in!
What we didn’t like: It is a big book so not handbag friendly unfortunately! You do need to concentrate a bit as there are quite a few characters to keep track of so probably not the best to unwind with when you’re about to go to sleep.
