Welcome to Thornthwaite, a quaint village tucked up in England’s beautiful but rainy Lake District… where homecomings and surprises await the four Holley sisters…
Esther Holley, the eldest, has always had her life firmly in control until a miscarriage knocks her off course. Two months later, still emotionally spinning, she separates from her husband Will, a sheep farmer and man of few words and moves back in with her parents.
Life as a singleton thirtysomething living in her parents’ house is miserable, but Esther is determined to re-boot her life, including going on a few unfortunate dates. She’s shocked when tight-lipped Will shows up on her doorstep determined to woo her back. They’ve been married for seven years, but Will wants to return to the beginning, dating and getting to know each other again.
Can romance save their marriage? Or do Will and Ester each need to dig deeper into themselves and what went so wrong with their marriage?
Always far better than they look
I said something similar in my review of the first book, but the name of the book and cover do not reflect the book itself which is far better than first impressions. In many ways it is still a “cozy” novel, but the characters and their problems are very real which elevates this series from a “nice read” to a great read.
