I thoroughly enjoyed this elegantly crafted 1920s novel that captures the glitz and sophistication of the decade after the Great War. Love, loss and old rivalries are skilfully woven against an atmospheric coastal backdrop holding a promise of new beginnings. There are some clever plot twists and turns and the characters - even the deceitful ones - are engaging , hooking me into sympathising with their motives and emotions. A five star page turner from the start
A moving story of tragedy, deception and one woman's determination to protect her family. I couldn't put it down!
This is the second historical novel I've read by Terri Nixon and it won't be the last. Sensitively written, the author explores beautifully the full spectrum of human emotions, expressing them with intense feeling. The characters are warm and engaging, and I like the fact that there is no real villain, just circumstances. The story was quite intriguing, and I'm now off to order the second in the series. A worthy five stars!
Terri Nixon has created a captivating backdrop for the Fox Bay Hotel, and the Fox family who run it. I guarantee their story will stay with you long after you have finished reading this beautifully written book
