Feel-Good book

Finished June 10
Notwithstanding by Louis de Bernieres
This gem of a novel has linked stories from a small English village with wonderful, memorable characters that will capture your heart. I absolutely loved this book and found the stories heartwarming without being schmaltzy.The small village of Notwithstanding has both families that have lived there for generations and newcomers. Each story focuses on a select individual or group of characters that are linked to other stories in the book. We get a real feel for the village, the way the inhabitants relate to each other, and the creeping change that is happening.
Highly recommended.
