One of best books by JOJO MOYES! This book has several twists and I loved it! In fact I read it a second time because I rushed thru the first time and I really savored it the seond time. It really shows how your life can change with 2 little Words! This is the third book I've read by Moyes and I loved them all.

This book had a slow beginning, and after reading the sample, I was not sure I wanted to purchase it . But since reading other books by this author, I decided to trust her and buy the book. So glad I did!! Great story, wonderful characters. JoJo Moyes does not disappoint!

Windfallen is JoJo Moyes' sweeping saga of a seaside town, and the true-to-life residents that inhabit it. The primary focus is on two ladies from two different generations, who form an unlikely but moving friendship. Moyes is an extraordinarily gifted writer. My only quibble with this book is the quote of one character named Daisy, who said disparagingly, "I don't know why people want to bring their dogs on holiday." I would like to have seen someone answer that question. Pets are family members, and we and many others wouldn't go somewhere without them. This is especially true for pets who were abandoned by previous "owners" (I refuse to use the word family for abandoners.) Otherwise, this was a splendid book.

If you've read "Me Before You", you may be disappointed in Windfallen. Altogether I liked the story, however in the beginning felt a bit confused with all the characters. Does not have the sweetness and humor and compassion of "Me Before You".

Teenage Londoner Lottie Swift finds the seaside village of Merham quite delightful as no one dare break the rules of morality less they prefer exile or being ostracized. However, the conversion of Arcadia mansion into a retreat for bohemian artists causes monumental conflict, as the locals detest the nonconformist outsiders. Lottie relishes the new infusion of excitement that the avant-garde crowd brings.

Five decades later, Daisy Parsons arrives at the small back to sleep village to renovate Arcadia into a luxury hotel. The villagers once again abhor the thought of amoral outsiders descending on their hamlet. Insecure from a failed relationship, Daisy discovers a mural that portrays scenes from the mansion¿s ignominious past. Daisy¿s work begins destroying the emotional cocoon that Lottie has resided since her teen days.

WINDFALLEN is a well-written comparative character study that interweaves the past and the present into a cohesive tale. The story line enables the audience to see deep inside the two women so that everyone understands what motivates both and the tenuous relationship and bond which forms between them. Though limited in action, Jojo Moyes provides readers with a deep drama that focuses on the long-term impact of personal opportunity costs.
