A gorgeous tale of friendship and love from Sunday Times bestseller Erica James.

Ashcombe was the most beautiful house Saskia had ever seen as a little girl. A rambling pink cottage on the edge of the Suffolk village of Melbury Green, its enchanting garden provided a fairy-tale playground of seclusion, a perfect sanctuary to hide from the tragedy which shattered her childhood.

Now an adult, Saskia is still living at Ashcombe and as a book restorer devotes her days tending to the broken, battered books that find their way to her, daydreaming about the people who had once turned their pages. When she discovers a notebook carefully concealed in an old Bible - and realising someone has gone to a great deal of trouble to hide a story of their own - Saskia finds herself drawn into a heart-rending tale of wartime love...

I have enjoyed Erica James' previous books. This was a big disappointment. The story, which is not very interesting, plods along very slowly. I, too, quit halfway through. Not recommended.

I am disappointed as I used to love Erica James. The story was so very very slow that I gave up a quarter of the way in. Helicoptered through the rest of the book but it was just more of the same.
