In A Nutshell: The story is split between two eras – the early 1960s and modern-day. Lexie is our 60s heroine – a girl who ran away from her dull, provincial home to London with the dashing Innes; and Elina is our modern day maiden, a new mother struggling to cope with her baby.
Good Points: You are aware that somehow the two sets of characters have to be linked and yet, this is given away at exactly the correct speed – not too quickly or obviously and not painstakingly slowly either.
Bad Points: None of it.
Good For: A beautifully written book with a load of marvellous twists.
