'Absorbing.' - Vogue 'Thoroughly readable... with old-fashioned romance' - Evening Standard 'Refreshing... imagination, charm and delicacy. Santa is the new Rosamunde Pilcher. Delightfully written.' - Daily Mail '[An] escapist, passionate romance' - Dorset Evening Echo 'This is a good, old-fashioned saga with all the classic ingredients. Federica has genuine pathos and charm, and those qualities permeate the whole book... engaging and charming.' - Penny Vincenzi, Mail on Sunday
