The Long Way Home by Robin Pilcher
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoy the Aga-saga genre, even when it takes until p166 for said Aga to appear (is there some union rule about the Aga mention? like, it must be done casually enough to convince the reader that it's not product placement? or, if you don't mention one you can't consider yourself a chick lit writer?) Anyway, the Aga made its cameo and all was well.
The plot, such as it is, revolves around Claire today and Claire's past, when she and her mother moved to Scotland to live with Leo (Mom's second husband and Claire's now-beloved stepfather); her relationship with her stepsiblings and with the boy-next-door are examined because Something Happened that broke up Jonas and Claire, Something that has Repercussions.
Of course all is resolved in the end and while Jonas will remain married to Liv and Claire will remain married to Art, each has made peace with each other and with their past. And isn't that all we want from one of these books?
