Charming story about dealing with love loss and family Sort of Rosamund Pilcher light Brave use of present tense for the flashback scenes of wartime England but it works Believable characters nice character development arcs satisfying resolutions without being overly saccharine I would definitely read by this author I find this type of story to be good summer reading

This book was OK The story is uite interesting but it was spoilt by the painfully slow build up The author was obviously trying slowly to develop the characters but it began to become annoying with the constant references and descriptions of dogs going for walks and cups of tea I liked the switching between the past and present and I was keen to know what all the secrets were It was almost like a grown up version of an Enid Blyton book

Before I begin I should point out that I have read the 2007 German paperback edition of Willett s The Children s Hour titled Das Spiel der Wellen The book turned up in my kitchen after it was cleared out by one of my neighbours He left it with me since I am the only German speaker in the neighbourhoodI was not overly keen to start reading The Children s Hour and so the book lingered together with the other titles he dropped off that day on my kitchen shelf I picked it up six months ago finished other books in between and eventually completed it last Thursday The time it s taken me to get through this novel 333 pages suggests that this was a less than gripping readThe story takes place in the British countryside in the late 1990s early 2000s but covers a period of roughly 65 years from the late 1930s onwards At the centre of the novel are sisters Mina and Nest who share the family home in Ottercombe A visit by their older sister Georgia who suffers from dementia not only prompts Mina and Nest to reminisce about the past but also to confront deeply buried family secrets and to deal with a host of issues affecting them and their niece LyddieConsidering the overall length of the book the vast number of characters and the time span covered Willett attempts to cram an awful lot into a rather tight space The characters and issues she explores dementia disability infidelity and adoption remain by and large on the surface As a result of the constant flashbacks the story lacks an overarching plot line which would have provided Willett s narrative with a sense of direction The incorporation of surprising twists and turns right at the end felt like other parts of the book contrived rushed and engineeredWillett is often compared to author Rosamunde Pilcher Never having read anything by Pilcher The Children s Hour nevertheless reminded me of the ubiuotous Pilcher TV adaptations on German TV Set against the backdrop of picturesue English countryside and populated with bland characters Willett s book appears to be as formulaic as the Pilcher adaptations My copy will be handed in at the nearest charity shop One to be missed
