Fun easy going story with great narration. I like the link to ‘The Bookshop on the Shore’ (her earlier book) as I loved some of the characters in that book. It was nice to reacquaint with them again - but knowing this or their backstory is not necessary to you enjoyment of this book.

The challenges of women living free and fulfilling life in rural American in times past is explored in this story. The narration brought the characters to life. The story made me reflect on the bravery of all the women who have gone before us to give us our freedoms today (and the rare men who were there to support them).

A thoughtful exploration of a youthful friendship that survives and flourishes in spite of loss of the hardest type (parent and sibling). Speaks to the power of love that remains with us long after friends and family have passed.
