A little slow to start but once it hits its stride it is very good. A little shallow - would have preferred more depth to Nora's struggle once her husband went to jail. Yes, a predictable ending with most loose ends tidied up.You could read much worse on a rainy day.

A nice little story with a predictable ending.

This was really enjoyable and the descriptions of the food, tantalizing. A good summer read - in fact a good read anytime
