The Flight of Gemma Hardy - Margot Livesey
There were so many fabulous things about this book, but I'm time limited so I'll just skim over them. The setting of England and Scotland in the grips of change in the 50s-60s is really interesting. Gemma's friends and relationships unveiled slowly and each layer added to their murky interest. Gemma's choices to come into her own kept me fascinated.
It lost points for me in the romance between Gemma and Hugh Sinclair. Even without the fascination of Mr. Rochester he still should have felt like more of a character to me then he did. Instead he was the least interesting character in the book. That made the ending of the book very anti-climactic for me.
