What a delightful book! I had enjoyed the French Estates books but this one transported me back to my childhood. Beth’s writing is so good you feel you are ‘in the moment’ and memories of a childhood surrounded by animals, a girl’s boarding school and the hilarious small dinghy races off the coast of the llyn peninsula crowded into my mind. I cannot recommend this book highly enopugh. Now I will have to go back and re-read all the French Estates series!
