I hated this book. So this is going to be rather a short review. I thought it was a book about the shortage of men post world war one and the impact it had on marriage. When it started in the current day I wasn’t too concerned. So many books do that just now flit from current to past. But no this book was firmly set in the present apart from going back to scenes from the main characters childhood.
The main character’s job was to counsel troubled children. Yet she herself had a hugely troubled childhood. So there is child abuse (by her), theft, bigamy and death it’s all there as she looks at each of her cases and remembers her past. I should have cared but I didn’t. I only finished it as I was in I’ve started it so I’ll finish it mood. Can’t now return the book to Amazon. And I had time on my hand. But there was for me very little to like in this book. Can’t fault the writing or the descriptions of Manchester. Apart from that not the best read unless you want to read about a hugely selfish character who has created most of her problems and issues.
Does anyone know what the book is about post world war one bridesmaids? Let me know if you do.
