This novel deals with two women: a 40-year old successful author, living in the Lake District with her husband and two children, enters into a mentoring and then a more personal relationship with a young troubled young lady who is struggling with life.
The relationship leads to a court case (without giving too much away) as both women develop in different ways. The novel is quite engaging and is certainly well-written but, although I enjoyed it at a certain level, I would say that, as a 63-year old male, I am not the target readership here. Without sounding sexist (I hope), this would suit a female readership and/or a book group.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
