Publisher's Summary

Bad childhood memories start to resurface when Hannah Hall’s daughter Rosie begins school. To make matters more complicated, Hannah has been steadfastly ignoring the obvious truth that Rosie is intellectually gifted and wise beyond her years.

In the crumbling old school, she meets Rosie’s new teacher, Alice Spencer, who has moved from the city to teach in the small coastal town of Fairlight.

Alice immediately sees Rosie’s potential and embarks on developing an educational curriculum to suit Rosie’s needs, to Hannah’s dismay.

Teacher and mother clash over what’s best for young Rosie.

Will they be able to compromise? Will Hannah finally open up to someone about her own damaged up bringing?

And will they be able to ignore the sparks that fly whenever they are in the same room?

Small town life

I really liked the way that A.E. Radley was able to incorporate a child into this story as the focal character. This story develops in a way that is suspenseful and humorous. I in particular was drawn to the way Alice and Hannah's relationship grows even through Hannah's behavior. Rosie's innate insight into her mom and Alice makes for smiles and warmth. This is one of the best feel good and what next novels I have read in quite awhile. Kim Bretton did a wonderful job narrating this story and I look forward to hearing other books narrated by her.

boring

I kept fast forwarding because it was just detail and conversation that had nothing to do with the main plot. their were hardly any interactions between the two women and in the end I was left like "that was it?".
