A generational study of following one's heart, beginning with the mother coming of age in the 60s and the daughter in the 80s. With very different perspectives and the usual mother/daughter drama, this is a very richly readable book that reminds me a lot of Pilcher and Binchy. The dialogue is a little muted, but this is intellectual (as in "use your imagination") non-bodice ripper kind of romance. An amazing weaving into a very enjoyable book that will take the reader from the Cornish Coast, to swinging London, to Scotland and ... then on to Afghanistan. The timing of this book makes the story all the more interesting in light of current events.

Eloquently written. It helps to have read the book that preceeded this one, Legacy of Love, I believe is the title. Joanna Trollope writing as Caroline Harvey is on the front cover.

Wonderful historical novel! I love all of Trollopes books because they offer insight into human nature, some romance and interesting characters.
