I was told by a handful of people that I just have to read a Pilcher book because I would just love her I am guessing this book was NOT was those people meant for me to read since this was NOT my personal reading taste - at all!! I hate we lots of stupidly overdone and very strange Drama, horrendes Male Lead that kidnaps a 2 year old without anyone calling the police and a complete push over as the main female lead - for my first book by the author I think I could not have chosen a worse one!
I hate weak female leads especially those that are constantly doing things that makes the reader want shake the character to see I maybe the little bit of spine might snap into place with enough force! Victoria was one of the worst characters I read about for a good long while!
I can not for the life of me understand why no one in this book thought to actually tell the police a child was taken away from his home! I am giving her another chance but this book was not good at all! View 1 comment. Apr 14, Flave rated it did not like it.
And such a woman is, unfortunately, the protagonist Victoria Bradshaw. She is even described as being pale and having colourless hair! Everything dear Victoria cares about is pleasing men, so they don't get annoyed by her. Thus, she lets them or this one, an artist, Oliver Dobbs treat her like dirt, and still, as if somebody pressed the standby button on her brain IF she has one, one might ask, reading that book , she runs after Oliver, apparently th Let me make this clear: I HATE weak women.
Thus, she lets them or this one, an artist, Oliver Dobbs treat her like dirt, and still, as if somebody pressed the standby button on her brain IF she has one, one might ask, reading that book , she runs after Oliver, apparently the only man in her life how does that work if you're over 30? By living in a monastery?! I have to confess, every time, that Oliver guy did something mean, I thought "Great, NOW she's going to wake up and realize he's an asshole" but at the end of the book I personally thought she deserved it, being so helpless and stupid.
Of course, she realizes her mistake just in time to turn to the next guy available, John, who even owns a castle and earns a LOT of money jeeeeeez, that girl really learnt from her mistakes In the author's books, the "bad guys" are those people who with their selfishness and immaturity cause problems to others.
But the truth is that she is not so strict with them, so it gives them second chances to be able to fix things. This is what happens in this book, where an egocentric writer tries to change his life and make up for what he did wrong with his behaviour.

The beautiful landscape of Scotland is the ideal romantic setting, the woman who loves him is by his side and the rest you can read for yourself.
This book is slightly different, with the author dealing with the doubts and dangers of love, the mental strength one needs to change path, the difficulties that can be overcome through strong beliefs and real emotions.
Beyond that, however, everything is as we would expect, with wonderful mild romance, optimism and descriptions of the natural environment being the main features. All this makes the book interesting and moving enough to leave satisfied those who appreciate what the author offers. Feb 07, Angie rated it really liked it. This is one of the longer of her "short" books, and unfortunately for me, the last one I hadn't read with the exception of the short story collections of Flowers in Rain and the Blue Bedroom.
I love her books because they are gently written, invoke a bygone era, and leave you with fuzzies inside. Readers should remember these were written many years ago, and I think that is why some people interpret her females as weak.

You could say that Victoria in this novel is weak and stupid, or you can think of her as a young, insecure female who's unsure of her worth. I think her personality can still be seen in today's young women and the poor choices they sometimes make with men.
In that way, her novels are timeless. I'm a big Pilcher fan! As usual, this one is clean, with no explicit intimacy. View all 4 comments. Aug 29, Amber rated it did not like it Recommends it for: No One!
Shelves: romance. Besides that, just about nothing actually happened in the book and it was all just very predictable. Not to mention there are only so many descriptions of scenery a person can take. Probably about a third of the book was devoted to describing the surrounding area in Scotland. I am so relieved to be done with this book. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
