About the Author
With an insatiable appetite for other people's business, Erica James will readily strike up conversation with strangers in the hope of unearthing a useful gem for her writing. She finds it the best way to write authentic characters for her novels, although her two grown-up sons claim they will never recover from a childhood spent in a perpetual state of embarrassment at their mother's compulsion.
The author of many bestselling novels, including GARDENS OF DELIGHT, which won the Romantic Novel of the Year Award, and her recent Sunday Times top ten bestsellers, SUMMER AT THE LAKE and THE DANDELION YEARS, Erica now divides her time between Suffolk and Lake Como in Italy, where she strikes up conversation with unsuspecting Italians.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The two protagonists, Ella and Maggie, seem to put up with an awful lot from their partners and families; and although we all well understand these pressures on women in modern life (that's why I like to read women's literature), these people simply did not ring true to me at all. Both women seemed wooden and unreal, I never felt I got to know them. It was as if, having become lazy, the author relied on making the people around the main characters so one-dimensionally mean and unsympathetic, that Ella and Maggie were justified in all their subsequent actions. When such decisions become a no-brainer, not only is it very simple to have the character react in a certain predictable way, it becomes incredibly annoying for the poor reader to struggle through a hundred pages while she makes that decision...
I tried to like this book, I really did. I read it to the end to be fair. I just did not find it is a pleasant or enjoyable read.
