A beautifully written story with many undertones to it On the surface it appears a story of family life, quite mundane really but there are hidden depths here Wonderful characterisation of all the characters I felt not just Godfrey St Peter, even the periphery characters all had their time on the page.
A gentle novel, but heartfelt and reflective.
