n Pond Lane and Paris by Transita author Susie Vereker, recently widowed Laura Brooke is ready to emerge from her solitary life which began when her husband suffered a severe stroke eight years before and never really recovered. He left her no money, and her step-father isn't about to turn loose any of her mother's inheritance. She finds herself in need of employment in order to pay her debts and maintain her home out in the country on Pond Lane. When she accepts a position as a companion to the teenage daughter of an ambassador to France, she finds herself not only splitting her time between two locations and lifestyles, but dividing her loyalties as well. The many contrasts make for an interesting story. Laura splits her time between glamorous Paris and the countryside of Pond Lane, her motherly instincts between her charge and her own daughter, and her relationships with the ambassador and the married best friend of her husband. Through it all, and most importantly, Laura learns how to stand on her own two feet. The author's writing was light enough for the story to move quickly and yet keep the plot interesting with lots of twists and turns. (It certainly kept me going back and forth right along with Laura.) I found Pond Lane and Paris to be an enjoyable, satisfying read.
Review: Pond Lane and ParisUser Review - Goodreads
Ok but I felt the story dragged in places and the ending was a bit predictable.
