****3/5 stars- Liked it

In this early Jojo Moyes novel, a mother and daughter find common ground in Ireland.

Recommended readers:

  • Fans of a mother-daughter saga
  • fans of Jojo Moyes
  • fans of horsey chick lit

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 3/5 for characters
  • 3/5 for plot
  • 3/5 overall
  • 3/5 steaminess


Three generations of mother-daughter conflict come to a head when fumbling mother Kate sends her daughter, Sabine, to visit her own estranged mother, Joy, in Ireland.  As all three women try to work through their conflict with each other, we also hear Joy’s story, from expat life and love in Australia to running a horse farm in Ireland. It’s no Ship of Brides, but Moyes is a born storyteller, adept in emotional upheaval and redemption.
