Journal Entry 1 by Strude from Burnaby, British Columbia Canada on Tuesday, November 13, 2018
Heather finds a nice young man who says that she doesn't appreciate her own looks and they quickly build a strong and healthy relationship in spite of his clinging and controlling Mother.
Ismay finds a young man, too, a handsome man who reminds her somewhat of Guy, the step father. I didn't like Andrew as soon as he began to badmouth Heather and Edmund, her young man, because Edmund was a nurse in the care home where Heather was the cook. Andrew is selfish, self centred, class conscious, and just generally nasty, while Edmund, once he gets the courage to move out of his mother's house and reject his mother's choice of a wife, is a caring, kind, and generous person, not willing to hurt others unnecessarily. The comparison of the two sisters is fascinating.
This is not an Insp. Wexford and there is not, in fact, any police investigation but MS Rendell must have had delight writing the characters.
The storm at the end is one I remember because friends were in Thailand over Christmas and were caught up in it along with their 5 year old son. It made that part particularly vivid.
