It took me years to track this down to read the first time. I love the quiet, careful way Cadell builds a story. There's not flash and dash, just interesting characters, some quirky, some annoying, but all of them pull you in and make you care. They aren't perfect, but they are real. I think that is what charms me about a Cadell novel. It feels like she's telling you a real story about real people.

I have read many of Elizabeth Cadell's novels but had not been able to find this one in print. It is a great story about an extended family living their lives in a British village. I had read it perhaps 45 years ago but didn't remember the story. I have so enjoyed reading it again. Thanks to whoever made it available again on Kindle.

I discovered Elizabeth Cadell's books as a teenager years ago. I loved her gentle slice of life stories and quickly read every book our small library had in stock.

As an adult, I found that Ms. Cadell's books were out-of-print and very difficult to find. I obtained the ones that I could but others, such as this book, remained too far out of reach for me to buy.

I was thrilled to find this title available on Kindle and purchased it and waited for the right time to read it (when I could enjoy the author's delicate humor.) The story is right in line with the rest of her books. A lovely slice of life of a family and events that one is allowed to peek into.

Harriet is the mother and her kids (except for one daughter who is busy with her own children) are coming home. She wants to spend the time with them as it may be the last time they get together for quite a long time. Unfortunately, beginning with Harriet's brother, the Admiral, a whole cast of characters begin to drop in on her time.

The family get on as most do – with lots of back and forth and miscommunication. How this all plays out is the fun of this story. The younger children, Henry and Sue, are the characters who push the action of the story. Henry, especially, is the cause of a lot of misinterpretation and consternation. His behavior (especially with the telephone) set up a series of events that end up almost in catastrophe.

As always, Ms. Cadell's story are told with deft touch. She gets her points across with a light and funny voice and before you know it, the book is at its end.

I will certainly be back to pick up not only the books that I have not read by Ms. Cadell but also to find the books that I have read over the years and which I consider to be old friends.

I am enraptured by this book!
Two of my favorite characters are Henry and Sue. In a nutshell, they are a hoot!
Beautifully written, serene descriptive settings and location. Ten out of ten.

The interaction between family and friends makes this Cadell more domestic than most. Lively fifteen-year old Henry plays adolescent tricks that are deftly woven into the love story. Keeping up with him is much of the fun. This isn't one of Cadell's more sophisticated comedies, but it is a tasty dish. Not fishy at all.

She is a delightful writer, not a lot happens but her characters are delight to meet. This is fun frothy writing at it's best. You don't worry, you just enjoy

I have been buying all the Cadell books as they came out in the Kindle format. I already have many in hardcover, but I am gearing down to be ready to go to the Care Center. I never thought I would ever get to read this book - - which was hard to get. Like all of Cadell's books, this is a most enjoyable read. I think that the 1 thing I like most about her characters is that you see them develop over the course of the book. You won't be disappointed!!!
I loved this book! It isn't so much a romance as a look at a functional (as opposed to dysfunction) family. Everyone gets along fairly well, with some very believable sibling interactions. Lots of funny scenes, as is typical of Cadell. My favorite was where the younger children, Henry and Sue, start to organize a storage cupboard, and end up playing with toys instead.

Speaking of Henry, he is my favorite character in the book. If you are fans of the Just William books by Richmal Crompton, you will see a lot of William in Henry, just a few years older.
