Winter Gregory is a surprisingly good writer, more so than anyone thought she could be. Afterwards Gregory decided to write her next book taking up on the heels of the previous one. To do this she researches in a Yorkshire village. Soon her life becomes enmeshed with those of the community, especially Scarlet an 8-year-old who has recently lost her mother. It is through this little girl that Gregory meets Alex, Scarlet's uncle. As this relationship grows, each deal with problems they are facing.
This superb book's overall theme is grief and different ways of dealing with it. Don't let that discourage readers, however, as the author deals with it in a caring and, at times, humorous manner.
This book is one of my favorites. Even though I have not read any books by this author in the past, I believe from now on she will be on my radar.
I was given this book by NetGalley and ChocLit in exchange for my honest review.
