What the Critics Say

"What a deeply satisfactory ending. It is full of hope, and a sense of rightness...which I for one want from a book. (Bel Mooney)
"Lyrical prose, a good, strong storyline, plenty of soul searching, and last minute revelations all add up to an excellent read. (Nottingham Evening Post)

    "Tuscan Promise Unfulfilled"

    I found this book over-long, although it was well read and moderately interesting. I was disappointed that there was very little of Tuscany, or gardens, in it and was irritated as the book went on, by the increasing references to God and 'faith'.
