Last night I closed my computer on the last page of Distance with a lump in my throat and tears stinging my eyes. I was hooked from the beginning as I could identify so much with the story as it unfolded in front of me. Loved the part about living on Ramsay Street, how many of us from the UK can imagine living there as the howl of the wind whistles through the sash windows of the old houses we live in and in front of us on the TV screen is the out door perfect life we would like for the summer but experience for 2 days a year when living in Wales.
As an expat I too have left a child behind and the feelings that Isobel felt resonated with me. Nene has described the 2 worlds she lived in perfectly, I was left with a feeling that on the last page her world was complete.
I felt as the book went on it became more confident in its descriptions and started to paint the whole picture so we were living in someone else's life. I am glad I was not living in your house at one point though, if you know what I mean.
Thank you for the best read I have had for a long time and looking forward to the next book
