Raffaella Barker is the most romantic and generous writer. Her writing manages to be domestic and glamorous simultaneously, and this is her best book yet * Louisa Young bestselling author of My Dear, I Wanted to Tell You *

A beautifully written, superior romance perfect for a hammock on a sunny day * Wendy Holden, Daily Mail *
Barker writes like a dream and will sweep you away with this domestic drama * Tatler *
One of the cleverest and freshest of British novelists * Daily Mail *
I love Raffaella Barker's books * Maggie O'Farrell *
Nostalgia and sadness are scooped up into something more sweet than bitter, a novel that feels like a postcard sent back to those grief-stricken months at the end of the war, promising sunshine **** * Charlotte Runcie, Daily Telegraph *
