Review by welshy72
The story starts with Harry and his young son,Tom.Harry’s wife has just died and one of her dying wishes was for Harry to go back to where he came from and settle the past that has haunted him ever since he left Fisher’s Hill.He’s never forgotten the circumstances that drove him away and along with his wife Sara’s wish he returns to try and make amends with his first love Judy who has always been on his mind since he left.As we all know,I had this book free.I did enjoy it but not the kind of book I would rush out and buy for myself.It wasn’t the most thrilling of books but after the beginning,the story was quite fast paced.It had quite a few characters which sometimes can make a book confusing but that didn’t happen here and the story ploughed along nicely.A book that’s definately not in my favs but one that’s definately not in my worst reads.The author is well known for her romance books.I’ve read one or two of hers and enjoyed them.This is in no way chick lit but if it’s an easy read your after but want to step away from the usual boy meets girl kind of story then this is the book for you.
