It isn’t going to win any awards, but there are parts that caused me to pause and do some thinking.

The characters are interesting and there are more than a few laugh aloud moments, as well as some sadness. Sep 21, Brandy rated it did not like it. Does she really have allioth courage to risk her heart again?

A Rural Affair: Catherine Alliott: : Books

Some excellent twists in the plot. Some of her household have walk-on parts in her novels, but only the chickens would probably recognize themselves. And their portrayals actherine quite realistic.


My favourite thing about writer Catherine Alliott is the strong author voice that is entirely consistent across her books. We follow Poppy on her journey of pulling herself together amidst village life and surrounded by her friends. But in love This book took me ages rral finish it.

This story opens in well-trodden territory.

Poppy is a young wife and mother who has settled into a lacklustre marriage to Phil, a man she doesn’t really like but who fits the bill as a family provider, although a tight-fisted oneand a less-than-doting father. It is so funny and the characters allkott so enjoyable. Funny from start to finish. I am looking forward to Alliott’s A Crowded Marriage.

I do not usually enjoy books in which the heroine gets herself into ridiculous situations but these were fun -and more importantly, believable- and balanced by some really good sarcastic humor, and there isn’t much slapstick. But can Poppy put the past behind her and meet someone new that will make her happy? It’s funny in places and has the potential to be entertaining but it just starts to drag on and This book started out good,it held my interest and I wanted to keep reading,good likeable characters too.

How will it all end? Read a great book, or anything by Catherine Alliott.
