I was really loking foward to reading this book and it just turned out to be so disappointing. It started out good but as the story went on it got worse. I think what made me mad about this book is the way it turned out. She went home and never told. For those of you who have read the book you know what I am talking about. It just seemed disappointing to me. For all of you who have read it and are planning to read it I hope you find it much more rewarding than I did.

Seventeen years old Lara accompanied her mother as they toured the Far East together. Back at home in England, her dad Lambert invites her to come with him to Italy.-------------- Though a bit nervous as she has spent little time with dad, Lara jumps at the opportunity to spend time with her father as Lambert is a bit of a hermit. They spend the summer together in a Tuscan villa whose neighbors include a family of British millionaires with one Kip Willoughby being cute and her age. As Kip and Lara spend time together, she flirts outrageously with him until she begins to hear rumors that he is her half-brother. Did her father as an act of vengeance sire the lad to get back at his grandfather for deserting Lamb¿s parents during WWII in Germany? Or is just inane gossip?-------------------- When the story line focuses on Lara, the audience receives a deep fascinating character study as readers see her dad, her mom, the boy next door and others through her eyes. When the tale centers on Kip¿s parentage, it loses steam as it veers into overly melodramatic. Still following the escapades of the teen heroine is a charmer that will send the audience seeking other works from Esther Freud (see HIDEOUS KINKY not read by this reviewer).-------------- Harriet Klausner

The book was ok at the beginning, but then became boring in the middle, and was ok again at the end. This review may sound dull, but to me, that's how the book went.
