    Lovedieshere – I really enjoyed this story. Warm, whimsical and full of circles. The only thing that let it down were the regular references to Edie being fat, with a seaside comic postcard effect. To me this was unnecessary and got in the way of an otherwise tender story. ‘The curve of her smile before it hit her chins..’ A bit sneery?
