“Deservedly compared to her countrywomen, Binchy and Pilcher, Willett is an equally gifted storyteller.”—Booklist

In Marcia Willett’s latest novel, Jolyon, who had been abandoned by his mother, Maria, is living at the Keep with his father and his stepmother Fliss. Now that Jolyon is a successful television presenter of gardening programs, the recently widowed Maria, lonely and impressed by her son’s fame, reappears and hopes to step back into his life. But Jolyon finds it difficult to trust his mother and forgive the hurt she had inflicted on him.

I've liked Marcia Willett books in the past, but this one seemed convoluted, the characters flat, the potential suspense not very suspenseful, and overall disappointing. Read full review
