The story is told in alternating chapters from the point of view of Jo and Tessa. I warmed to these two characters quickly and felt a lot of sympathy towards them as I have been in a similar situation. It’s hard to return to your home town and find everything altered or that everyone has moved on. I thought the author did a great job of describing the feelings the two girls must have felt. They seemed very real to me and I wished that I could reach into the book and give them both a hug at times.

This isn’t a particularly fast paced book but it is a very engrossing one and quite a poignant one at times as we watch the two characters trying to find their place in the community. I enjoyed seeing the two woman become closer and giving each other the support they both needed.
Overall I really enjoyed this heartwarming read which had a lovely message at it’s centre of its never to late to find your place in life. I grew very fond of the two main characters and I felt very involved in their lives. I wanted to keep reading to find out how things ended up for them.
