"Barker artfully brings the three stands of her narrative together, teasing the reader with suppressed passions, and bringing the story to a clever and reassuring conclusion." --Independent on Sunday "[A] dreamy, poetic novel, full of references to Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse . . . A beautifully written, superior romance perfect for a hammock on a sunny day." --Daily Mail "[A] feel-good story . . . refreshingly upbeat." --Publishers Weekly "[A] breezy and entertaining novel, which should appeal to the Joanna Trollope crowd." --Library Journal "Poetic . . . As Barker deftly draws her two narratives together, she illustrates how the war years affected the lives of both soldiers and civilians for decades to come, and how decisions made in one generation have the power to shape those of the future." --New York Times Book Review
