My goodness, it's a while since we've had a new Marika Cobbold to look forward to! Having said that (sorry, cliche!) I enjoyed her early novels but not her later ones. This may be worth a try, though.

PS I left the comment above - about it being a while since having had a new Marika Cobbold - not having been aware of her novel Aphrodite's Workshop for Reluctant Lovers, which had totally escaped me.


I have just started this and never having read any of this author before, was a bit tentative but it is shaping up nicely


I think this is the third of Marika's novels that I have read, and although this one has dark themes, it's not a dark book. Hope you'll enjoy it, Elaine.


I haven't read that one, but the new book was a welcome return to Marika's work for me.


Will let you know in due course!!

I'm ashamed to say that I've never read a Marika Cobbold before but the cover is enough for me. I love anything to do with ceramics and that cup is heavenly. Will try!
