and I found it incredibly poignant and thought provoking I loved the characters and the tranquil setting of the priory, and thought the author did a really good job of evoking the sadness that accompanies such a tragic event whilst still retaining the necessary lightheartedness to keep you turning the pages I received a copy of the book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my

holiday reunion plans Isn t it sad when a busy life interferes with your friendships So the invitations go out and the summer lies tantalisingly ahead.Harrie has rented a beautiful ancient priory in the Somerset countryside It s so tranquil and peaceful, just the sort of place for the four of them to relax She wants to break her news to her dearest friends and create new memories, but only when the time is right Her daughter will be joining them for some of the time it will be quality time for them all to share fond memories and reminisce over their past joyful and carefree times Only when the time comes Harrie finds it difficult to unburden herself She doesn t want to upset her friends It s certainly a subject she finds and difficult to broach.This poignant story has such a beautiful ending and I really enjoyed the wonderful storytelling The setting was just right for the occasion and together the friends look to their futures and access what they could still make of their lives I

just to make ends meet When they come together at the priory, they tell themselves that their friendship hasn t changed over the years One of them, however, knows that even that s true, her secret, when shared, will forever change their friendship.The story is told through Harriet s first person view She tells us of the sniping that Lisa and Audrey can t seem to stop doing, and which may get tiresome for some readers Using the first person, Connelly may have limited her story too much We don t get to see Audrey s and Lisa s reactions to the reunion through their own eyes.This is a well written book and will capture the reader from page one And while we know what the secret is and who s secret it is to tell, we keep reading The story and the three women are somewhat stereotypical, it s the writing that keeps us reading into the late hours of the night flag Like see review Dec 31, 2018 Lindsey rated it really liked it review of another edition Victoria Connelly is an author I just

her about Alfie, the handsome young gardener There s lots of relaxing time together though and Harrie enjoys bringing taciturn stonemason Samson Haverstock out of his shell The story hinges on what happens when Harrie finally plucks up the courage to tell her friends her secret, how they react and help each other deal with the devastating news.I loved Harrie and Sampson s interactions,
