A View of the Harbour

Nothing wrong with this, it just took me a long time to read it. It didn’t hold my attention enough to get through it at any reasonable pace, and it wasn’t uninteresting enough to put down. Faint praise I know. There was one very good storyline with good characters: Tory having an affair with her best friend Beth’s husband, and Beth’s daughter Prudence’s take on it; and another storyline with Maisie and her dying mother that didn’t go anywhere much that I could see - the book didn’t quite seem to be balanced.
