Light and Humorous Romance
My rating: 4 out of 5
A story of relationships and what makes them work, or not.
This is an enjoyable, at times humorous, story all about Jill who meets Jack at a British university. The narrative follows them through university and into the world of work in London and beyond. It is not only a lovely story of their relationship, but also of their relationships with those around them – their families, friends and colleagues.
Although a light hearted book, there are some really interesting themes about parental expectations, mixing a tough working life (City of London Trader) with home life and about what makes for a good relationship.
I worried that this would be a book for university age readers, or thereabouts. I was wrong. This is a great entertaining read for all ages. I never really got engaged with the characters themselves, but could relate their lives to the real world. This is what pushed this book up into a 4 star rating.
If you like a light read, with a bit of humour and some thought provoking material – this is for you.
