Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Read, But Over Too Soon This is a great book set in rural England. The characters are lovable and are realistic. The story is told from the viewpoint of multiple characters. The author has weaved a story that is in-depth and enjoyable. I felt that the end of the book was a bit rushed and had wished for it to be a bit longer. I would recommend this book and I am looking forward to reading other books from this author.
