A feel-good love story in a gorgeous country village, perfect for fans of Milly Johnson and Heidi Swain.
Previously published as A House To Mend a Broken Heart.
Willow Tree Hall has been the proud ancestral home of the Cranley family for centuries. But now the house is falling apart, and the elderly Earl is growing too frail to manage it himself.
Annie Rogers is looking for a job that will allow her to disappear. The role of live-in housekeeper to Arthur, Earl of Cranley, and his reluctant heir, Sam Harris, is just perfect. How hard can it be to run a household? But with no qualifications, and Sam criticising her at every turn, Annie suddenly finds herself completely out of her depth.
But it turns out that Sam and Annie have more in common than they think. Both of them are running from their past. And both of them have fallen under the spell of Sam's beautiful, once-grand home. Maybe, just maybe, together they can save Willow Tree Hall ... and bring each other back to life at the same time.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The first novel in the Willow Tree Hall series is the sort of heartwarming romance you’ll want to get cosy with. We meet Annie Rogers struggling in her new role as housekeeper to the Earl of Cranley, and his (rather attractive) heir: Sam Harris. Alison Sherlock’s gorgeous descriptions of the once impressive, now crumbling estate and the surrounding English countryside quickly had us falling for Willow Tree Hall. As Annie and Sam work together to save the old ancestral home they discover that—despite their initial dislike of each other—they might be more similar than they previously thought.
