This is the first novel I have read by this author, but it definitely won’t be the last. After starting and rejecting three other novels on my Kindle and not having anything else to read, I bought this one on the spur of the moment. What a lovely heartwarming story it turned out to be, I just wanted to keep reading. Such great characters, all with their own problems, coming together in a caring, kindly way. A bit far-fetched in places, but generally how we would all like our society to be in real life.
