Lovely story

What can I say...I loved this book.  It is one of the best novels I've read so far this year.  The characters were well-written and the plot moved at a steady pace.  I enjoyed the way it jumped from past to present and back again and found it very easy to follow.  It is a poignant, bitter-sweet story with plenty of humour and excellent characters that I will, almost certainly, read again.
