This delightful story from Helen Meikle is told from an omniscient point of view, and is set in the Sydney area. The author’s voice reflects her Australian background, and her well written words evoked many images from my own life.
At first, I found the view-point disconcerting, but that eased once I realised it was the writing style – not accidental head hopping.
This is the first time I’ve read a digital novel. I became so engrossed in the story, that I didn’t notice the page numbers whipping by (106 pdf pages on my laptop) and it seemed to end suddenly. I wanted more!
In my honest opinion, any book which reduces me to tears is a good book. I have no hesitation recommending it to you. I would happily pay for any future novels by Helen Meikle. I would pay for this one.
You might think you have your future neatly laid out, but what happens when other people trample across your plans? Meg, Joey, Angelique and Caitlin are different ages, have different lives and different plans for the future, but by the time their paths cross, each of them has found that events have no respect for planning. This is a story about choices and relationships.
Yes, I’ve done it!
After several threatened meltdowns and innumerable cups of coffee, my book is now on Smashwords, Kindle etc, thanks to my daughter who knows far more than I do.
I’d love you all to review it (you don’t have to be polite) but I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea (women’s fiction/relationships/light ent) so it’s up to you!
