Dinah Steward has a secret  . I was quite disappointed with this book - I had read Constance by Rosie Thomas, enjoyed that and thought I would give another one of her books a go. However, I foubd this one quite hard to get into. Then I started to be absorbed, but it was spoilt two thirds of the way through with the 'kidnap' which I found a little far fetched.

Rosie Thomas's story of a mothers love for the child she gave up for adoption is heartwarming. I enjoyed A Simple Life too, but not one of my favourites by her. I found it a little implausible in parts and somewhat predictable

Rosie Thomas's story of a mothers love for the child she gave up for adoption is heartwarming. Her shame of this secret eats away at her until she finds the courage to do something about it. Her characters spring to life and are so real you can "see" them. In this audio version, Clare Higgins switches from character to character with ease and panache. Dinah's life comes full circle, and I'm so glad I was along for the ride. I found it a little implausible in parts and somewhat predictable.

From the bestselling author of The Kashmir Shawl. Dinah Steward has a secret. She and Matt never speak of it or the impossible choice he forced her to make all those years ago: they think the cracks have been papered over.

A Simple Life - Rosie Thomas. Jack was reading a book in the corner. Matthew came to Dinah’s side. His hand rested on her hip, transmitting the semaphore of partners: time to leave now, wouldn’t you say? I’m ready if you ar. inah felt her physical connectedness to him. At that moment he was utterly familiar, solid and intelligible.

A SIMPLE LIFE: Dinah Steward has a secret. But when a chance encounter brings the past into sharp focus once more, Dinah realises she can no longer deny the truth.

Thomas’ portrayal of a young wife struggling to cope with life in wartime Kashmir, her husband’s indifference to her and her attraction to a charismatic mountaineer is beautifully written, touching and believable’ The Daily Express.

I've read many books by Rosie Thomas and thoroughly enjoyed them - all very different though, but all remarkably well researched. I enjoyed A Simple Life too, but not one of my favourites by her. I found it a little implausible in parts and somewhat predictable. I bought it on the basis of rave reviews by other readers, so was slightly disappointed. However, if you're looking for a good read, which is not too taxing, then this will be good for you. Maybe a good one to put in a suitcase to read on the beach.
