3.0 out of 5 starsA nice lazy read.
Reviewed in Canada on July 20, 2020
Not much of a story line, but the descriptions of the surroundings and the local way of life were excellent. An easy, pleasant read for a lazy day.
You can never go wrong with Mary Stewart. Her eye for detail with people, places, birds, flowers is incomparable. Her plots keep you turning the page. I keep remembering a scene from one or another of her books and then I go back to them to be with old friends.
3.0 out of 5 starsFar from her best but still a Mary Stewart

I absolutely love Mary Stewart at her best and am giving this 3 stars only so that another fan, coming across it as I did, won't expect it to be one of her best. It's written with all her usual ability to engage and to share the scene and she's a lovely, lovely writer so if you don't expect too much you will enjoy. I did.

I love the books written by Mary Stewart. I have read most of her books and find them very interesting. She is a very descriptive writer so you feel as if you are there with her characters. I love to read and re-read Mary Stewart books and find it hard to put one of her books down once started.
1.0 out of 5 starsNowhere near as good as Thornyhold

Boring - won’t be reading it again. I absolutely loved Thornyhold and have read it a million times so I was hoping for the same with this book. I know her writing is easy and gentle but this did absolutely nothing for me. Disappointing.
