I like this book because it's about two very flawed people who messed up their marriage but still found a way towards each other despite it. Bryony was infuriatingly unlikeable and stubborn at the beginning, but after you find out Leo's Great Sin I totally get it. Some readers are turned off by the revelation, deeming him irredeemable, but in my opinion Leo was very typical of men during that age. Not that it made it OK - he's still a big dope - but I get why he did what he did.

Both of us characters are complex and flawed, and the redemption of their marriage was touching and thrilling to read.
