What I like about this author is her originality. I preferred this story to ‘The Traveller’s Daughter’, possibly because the author of the historical element in the story was still alive and you could see the possibility of a happy ending for her. The story is well paced. The present interspersed with short flashbacks to an earlier time.
I also enjoyed the mystical element of ‘the matchmaker’.
An unusual, heartwarming romance, which illustrates what’s essential in life and emphasises that the path to true love is often convoluted and painful.
The characters are well-developed and give the reader a flavour of small-town life in New Zealand. An engaging plot, often poignant with interesting twists.
The perfect story, if you enjoy family, small-town romantic fiction with a unique setting and original plot.
I received a copy of this book from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
