I listened to the audio of this. The pacing was wonderful.
At 98, Grace looks back at a specific time in her life and tells the truth of the matter. As the story unfolds, the times come alive and the circumstances build. The class differences, secrets, friendships, loves, deception, war.
Naturally, things aren't what they seem. There is a lot of foreshadowing and heavy hints throughout this book and the secrets that surface aren't always secrets to the reader but the slow build up to the final truth is suspenseful and entertaining.
This is a terrific debut novel.

This book would be for anyone that likes Downton Abbey.

This book is fabulous. No other words for it. Read beautifully, it covers the 1920s era and reflects the times perfectly. I could hardly put it down once I began. For a good, gentle read with a lot of depth, I heartily recommend it.
