The story is complex with surprises at every turn. I particularly liked Edith Burchill, known as Edie, who is the narrator, because she is so real. The three spinster sisters - Juniper, Saffy and Percy - have a strange, haunted background. Sheltered from life by their isolation in Milderhurst Castle and cherished by a doting wealthy father, they find themselves unable to live the lives they have dreamed with the loves of their lives. Why they cannot do so is what this story is all about. My only concern is that I'm not sure even life could deal any such combination of circumstances which occur again and again and again but this is fiction after all, isn't it?
