Publisher's Summary

Overlooking Angel Sands, an idyllic bay tucked into the Pembrokeshire coastline, sits Paradise House. It is home to the Baxter girls, or the "Sisters of Whimsy" as they're known locally. Despite their own chaotic love lives (there's no one brave enough to take them on and stay the course), they're determined to find a suitable partner for their divorced father. But this will be no easy task, for he's a man so shy of women he would rather climb up onto the roof in a howling gale to fix a broken slate than go on a date.

Most Helpful

A well structured tale

This is mainly about Genevieve Baxter, the eldest of three sisters. Through a series of flash backs, into her memory since she was a child, you gradually get to know, all about her life. And when the story is set, there emerges the dramas of a
complicated family. Paradise House is a well structured tale, using the names Angel Sands, Angel Cottage and Paradise House(of course)to add charm. The narrator, Jenny Agutter, is a little bit wooden, although she's generally okay.
