An Assault On The Senses
The noise and bustle of London contrasts sharply with the peace of the Dawlish countryside. Anonymity is exchanged for neighbours who pull together. The reader delights in the sights, sounds and smells of the countryside. Reading is a pleasant assault on all senses due to the marvellous descriptions.
There is a gap between the haves and the have-nots. The reader watches as the heroine transforms from aloof to all-in.
Family is important. There is a wonderful warm atmosphere that encompasses the reader. The mother is the glue that holds the family together.
