Our book club really enjoyed this JoJo Moyes early novel. Jojo Moyes as always pulls the reader in with a beautiful and convoluted plot that keeps the pages turning without ever becoming dull. It is a portrait of the 1950s mentality; it’s traits and conventions and how it will affect the lives of our protagonists. This one is set in 1950s and 2000s, with Lottie as the main character who ties the stories together. This is a novel of relationships—family, friends, romantic—that plays out against the backdrop of a fabulous art deco house in a British seaside town. Perhaps one of the best ways to describe this book is sweeping. It captures one and carries one through turbulent, sometimes-broken lives from the 1950s to the 21st century.There is a fascinating array of characters presented--including some strong female characters-- and somehow the author makes the reader feel part of the story rather than an outsider looking in. Especially the more contemporary character Daisy; one felt sorry for her struggles as a single working mother.
