Starting Over (by Marcia Willett)


'Starting Over' is a modern novel by Marcia Willett.

It's another book following the lives of people introduced in 'Those who serve', although it's not necessary to have read that first.

Several sub-plots intertwine: Pippa is in an unhappy marriage and needs advice from her godfather's widow, Annie; Hugh has irrational guilt over the death of Charlotte; Frances worries that her husband is being unfaithful.

The characters are cleverly woven together, and the conclusion is satisfying. Recommended.

(You can also read my longer review of 'Starting Over', written on re-reading nine years later).
