"Here we have five short tales of love: love found, love lost, love of place, love realized and love of a son. Love can be surprising and unexpected as Bonny Woodward discovers when she is mistaken for a shop assistant and eventually finds more than filo pastry in a supermarket. Across the sparks and crackle of a bonfire Clare sees a face she thought she had left behind her. Alex Steadman is both enchanted and disturbed by her new home and then a chance meeting with a tabby cat helps her to settle in. Joanna Grantley suddenly sees her husband in a new light and is pleased. Alex Steadman mourns the loss of her beloved son and is falling into a deep slough of despond, and then a surprising visitor calls."-- Provided by publisher.
