    1. I loved the characters in this novel, especially Masie I loved the story set in Edinburgh it makes me want to go I wasn t in love with the direction that Nora s story started to take towards the end of the novel, though I was happy for her finally I loved the very end of the novel I liked what Dewar implies about Nora and her mother, and Nora s future Well done, very enjoyable book.

    2.

    3.

    4. When I first saw the book, it was in my college library and I only noticed it because I felt like reading something So I just randomly laid my eyes on this book, noticing the title first Then, I read the summary behind the book and knew that I had to read it I never actually came across a book that had a main character who had a sister who everyone adored in comparison to her I have a sister and I do find myself feel inferior every time I see our vast differences, her having the better differenc [...]

    5. A great holiday read Well written, witty, and very believable characters I enjoyed this book very much At times I felt a close affinity particularly the descriptions of the garish interior decor of the 1970s and the fad for fully fitted carpet I m looking forward to reading by this author.

    6. Follows Nora as she makes her live in London far from Maisie her mother Story of their relationship and how Nora develops, creates new relationships, finds love I liked a lot of the characters in this book one of the things I like about the author is her development of the characters They seem to come to life and feel so familiar to me.

    7. Complicated family life centres around a mad matriarch who impacts heavily on her family even when they leave her house The author has created complicated characters but manages to generate sympathy for all Nora the main character, is maddening but not so much that I stopped caring.

    8. It s amazing how, in every book of Isla Dewar I ve read so far, I can always relate to one of the characters Sometimes it s a bit confusing with all the different perspectives but otherwise I really enjoyed getting out of the house

    9. Enjoyed this much than I d expected to from the cover, which makes it look much fluffy Found the setting evocative and the characters interesting.
