By Rosamunde Pilcher
I must rant a bit about ***spoiler**
Poor Lucy! It was so shocking in this day and age to read how this kind sweet woman left her doggie in a hot car in the first chapter. And then didn’t take her to the Vet when she got so sick in the last chapters! Is it possible people were so uneducated in the late 80s regarding dogs in cars?
This was read by Jilly Bond. Her reading of male voices was very irritating. Probably one of the worst readers I’ve listened to in a very long time. However, It didn’t prevent me from enjoying Pilcher’s beautiful thoughtful passages and descriptions. Her character development was as affecting and complex as usual. Her writing is just so evocative. I think this is my favorite Pilcher I’ve read in my re-read project so far. Really sweet plot and very sympathetic heroine except for ignorant treatment of her dog. **5 out of 5 stars**
