Many thanks for my copy of this book which the postman had hidden under the recycling boxes when I was out. I am very much looking forward to reading it over the Bank Holiday. My DSiL's family are Mormons and I struggle to understand it.

Thank you very much for my copy too. I've got my scary DCS Grace book 6 to finish and The Bolter and The Miniaturist to read for my "real life" book groups, then I'll be right on it. I love being retired! smile

This is the worst book I have ever received from Gransnet. It arrived yesterday at 2pm and I had finished it by midnight. It made me waste my day completely and it should have been delivered together with a large box of tissues. Thanks Gransnet! To all Gransnetters who have received a copy; No spoilers here but I couldn't have read it in public, too many tears flowed. However, there are beautifully written observations, one-liners and quite a bit of humour too. I couldn't put it down, it made me feel angry, sad, relieved, frustrated with some of the characters and delighted with others. I have several questions for Carys Bray but will post them later so as not to give anything away.

Thanks so much for my copy GNHQ after reading some off the comments I am intrigued and am looking forward to starting it in the next couple of days.

gillybob Wed 06-May-15 13:22:47

My copy was waiting for me when I arrived home last night. Thank you GN. smile

...and thank you for the advanced warning nonnanna I shall make sure not to read it in public. I do enjoy a good tear jerker. Can't wait.
