    Sad, funny, heartwarming & thoroughly enjoyable

    This was a story very close to my heart. I could relate to many things described about 4 year old Seth (although mine is a little diva). It got me reading up about child attachment disorders and feeling guilty about working and wishing I could give it all up to get more cuddles. But then the logical side woke up and I woke up from that lovely daydream to continue reading. So, we have Victoria (professional and hard working Mummy to young Seth). She runs a successful business with her equally lovely sister (and professional working Mummy of 4 children) to be brought down to earth with a bang when she realises her son shows little emotion and enjoys the company of his childminder rather than his Mummy's. After another round of abuse hurled at her by her son, and objects hurled at her, Victoria can no longer hide it from her sister and needs to come up with another olan. With some gentle persuasion and coaxing from Joo, Victoria decides she needs time to bond with her Seth. This leads to an impromptu visit to her Dad's, where she decides to stay for a few weeks. This is an emotional trip in itself as it brings back all sorts of memories and heartache over Chris - her first love - who at the same time, broke her heart and left her to fulfil his dream in the US. When she is back home, she notices everything has changed as well. Nothing is the same - it's not how it used to be. Even her Dad has moved on and found love again with local artist, Olivia. It all gets a tad cramped at her Dad's and after some heart to hearts with the lovely and very wise Olivia, she starts thinking about the cottage she inherited and how she might be able to renovate it for her and Seth to live in. Meanwhile, little does Victoria know, that Chris is also back in town, along with his son, Rick. Chris has a great deal of sadness surrounding him too, as he lost his wife and son in a horrific accident, which he cannot come to terms with and blames himself for it. It is Seth and Rick who bring Chris and Victoria together again. It takes a sheer act of heroism from Chris' part, in rescuing Seth from the cottage, when the ceiling collapses, to make Victoria see a different side to Chris. (Although she does a very good job at trying to talk herself out of it as well.) I couldn't put this down. I laughed out loud , cringed, felt sorry for Chris, felt sorry for Victoria a number of times. Yes there were sad parts and thoughtful parts, but there were lots of thoughtful moments and funny times too. I loved the company name Ewe Speak that and the little "bleats" instead of tweets. Very cleverly done and very entertaining. I also learned something ... little did I know the words Follow You, Follow Me were from a Genesis track, which you may find odd, but it reminded me instantly of my Dad and the years we spent listening to and watching him play his air drums .... but for the younger generation reading this ... you will probably need to You Tube Genesis to find out who they even are ...... 😂
