Buffy owner of a rundown B&B in Wales and a group of strangers find more in common than they first thought.
Wonderful collection of characters ranging in age and background set in vividly depicted Wales. Moggach excels in characterization and setting, both detailed, virtually jumping off of the pages. The reader experiences a delineated treat with Moggach’s intense descriptions.
A sweet story of average everyday people dealing with varying circumstances intersecting at Buffy’s B&B searching for healing, closure or respite. Life challenges aren’t always pretty, however, Moggach captures the narrative with great sentimentally along with plausibility. Humor patinas the intensity of the challenges faced by characters, offsets nicely.
No matter your age, a read all will enjoy and align with in at least some small way.
