It is the Christmas season and her family usually has a houseful of guests for Christmas - friends, family - but this year Daisy's mother Mabel has decided to surprise her husband - and has invited his mistress, Margot and her son Valentine and seems interested in Daisy. Surprise it is and let's say a little awkward. Rounding out the guests is Reggie, a friend who lives close by and seems to be enamored with Mabel - not that she seems to mind any - and Ben - an employee of her father's who spent part of the summer there and is quite taken with Daisy. Then there is Stephen Jessop - he is the son of the cook and gardener and has been Daisy's lifelong companion. The best way to sum up the three young men in Daisy's life is by taking a quote off the back of the book - "As Daisy wrestles with the truth, she blossoms in her own right, receiving a marriage proposal from one man, a declaration of love from another, and her first kiss from a third."
So the story revolves around Daisy, and her search for true love - while also trying to understand her parents relationship and love. Is there really much difference between young love and old love? Or can misunderstandings cause trouble at both ends?
This was my first book by Judith Kinghorn, but I did enjoy reading it. It is not a big action packed page turner, but the story slowly unfolds and there were times I just wanted to wring everyone's necks and tell them to communicate with each other! If you are looking for a good old-fashioned romance, then this one is for you!
