This hardback was bought from a car boot sale in Belford, Northumberland when I was spending a long weekend there to attend my nephew's wedding.
It tells the story of Henry Kent and Daisy Langrish who meet late in life and begin an unusual relationship. The cover illustration on this copy differs from the one shown on this page

Review:-"I nearly gave up with this book early on but skimmed it a little and then got into it again further in. I enjoyed the fact that alternate chapters were written from the points of view of the two main characters Henry and Daisy, and hearing their different take on what had happened in certain circumstances and situations. Quite a handy way to keep up with them both and interesting to get each point of view. Henry's stilted way of talking grated on me at times but I guess it was meant to imply that he wasn't totally familiar with speaking to people who he felt were "above his class". The story was compelling as I was very keen not to have Daisy taken advantage of.
In general I felt the story was very cleverly written and that it had a satisfactory ending.

Book being reserved for Snoopy56.

Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

I have read and enjoyed several books by this author, most notably The Cazalet Chronicles so I will definitely give this a go.
