Almost everyone loved this book for the evocative 1950s setting, the gentle pace, the warm but flawed characters. The plot devices of a supposed virgin birth and train crash may have been inspired by real life, but some felt they were not necessary, and at times not well handled, for what was considered in the main a beautifully written, engrossing novel.
