The Prodigal Wife

The Prodigal Wife by Marcia Willett: Book CoverIn Marcia Willett’s latest novel, Jolyon, who had been abandoned by his mother, Maria, is living at the Keep with his father and his stepmother Fliss. Now that Jolyon is a successful television presenter of gardening programs, the recently widowed Maria, lonely and impressed by her son’s fame, reappears and hopes to step back into his life. But Jolyon finds it difficult to trust his mother and forgive the hurt she had inflicted on him.

My Thoughts
I liked this novel. It has a lot of family drama but all families do have their share.
Some of the relationships within the family are irritating but I do suppose they could happen.
I think living in a house like the Keep would be fun. Not with the drama they had but with all the family coming to stay. The dinners and holidays would be the best.

Family relationships can be so complex! I like reading about the intricacies of familial bonds.
