    summary Foreign Fruit 108 Foreign FruitBeginning started out kind of odd actually and slow taking me 100 pages to become interested in the main characters Lottie Celia and their lives in the 1940's; and then when I was totally immersed Part Two abruptly switches to present day with a whole new set of characters I wanted of Guy and Joe Celia's crazy family and all the interesting character's at the deco house in Part One Author does eventually tie it all together in the end but reader is left with some unanswered uestions view spoiler like why Lottie didn't tell Guy the love of her life he had a daughter and Camille who her real father was and what about the unopened letters Celia wrote to Lottie hide spoiler

    summary Foreign Fruit 108 Foreign FruitHaving discovered that I loved the writing of Jojo Moyes I’ve set about to read through her backlist Windfallen is her second novel and was originally published in the UK as Foreign Fruit which to my thinking is a much appropriate titleThe novel begins in the 1950’s in the conservative seaside town of Merham a couple of hours from London The community is appalled when a previously empty 1930’s art deco house known as Arcadia is taken over by a group of bohemians with ambigious domestic relationships But 18 year olds Celia Holden and her friend Lottie Swift who lives with Celia’s family are bedazzled They are fit to burst from the constricting binds of Celia’s uptight mother and Merham’s eually uptight fear of change They begin to visit the newcomers entranced by the exotic way they live and their lack of inhibitions Celia’s mother finds out and sends her off to London Eig

    summary Foreign Fruit 108 Foreign FruitThis was a disappointment I've read and really liked other Moyes novels which I feel were written with substance however this book was so shallow and left me feeling flat It fell short in so many ways from the techniue employed the past story and the present story based around an unusual house in a conservative seaside English town The house itself is supposed to be a character in the novel and was built in the 1920's however the two parts to the story take place in the 1950's and the present day No history o

    summary Foreign Fruit 108 Foreign FruitRegular visitors to my blog will probably know that I'm a big fan of Jojo Moyes ever since she came to my awareness with books like Me Before You and The Girl You Left Behind but recently I have decided to read her back catalogue of work this book being the first Foreign Fruit was first published in 2003 and is set in two time periods contemporary and the 1950's but inter links seamlessly to form a fascinating and compelling story We start off in the 1950's in the sleepy seaside town of Merham where everybody seems to know each others business and keeping any kind of secret is practically impossible We meet two girls Lottie who loves the town is steady and reliable and has grown up with the Holden family as an evacuee during the war and Celia the Holden's flighty and slightly rebellious daughter who feels restricted by the holds of the town a

    summary Foreign Fruit 108 Foreign FruitThis is Jojo Moyes' second book and I have to say that it is uite obvious she became much skilled as a writer with subseuent works This was a most peculiar book Very hard to tell in which time frame the author was presenting each scenario the story jumps back in time There are so many characters it is difficult to work out the co

    summary Foreign Fruit 108 Foreign FruitHard to find this on Goodreads 'Windfallen' is aka 'Foreign Fruits' Not sure if the versions are different but I read Windfallen I had a hard time with the first 50 pages or so of this one I was confused bored I'm not sure when but maybe Chapter 3 or 4 I was hooked Then came part 2 and the story switched to modern day While parts of the past still weaved into the story I wished so bad the whole book would have been about the drama of Part 1's characters Love the Bohemians Very precious story of 'forbidden' love Sounds odd I know I was at first confused at the epilogue but after rereading the prologue I'm pretty sure I've figured it out Celia went insane believing her own lies I'm still confused as it was never really cleared up Did Lottie know Guy from her early years in London When she first saw him and was speechless it seemed as if she had Maybe it was just the feelings of fate I don't know can anyone clear that up for me I don't know if this was better than Moyes '
