I have now reviewed eight novels by Rosie Clarke. Historical fiction is not a genre I review much on my blog but Rosie Clarke is one of my favourite authors in this genre.
The synopsis is pretty self-explanatory in terms of the plot and as I have reviewed the previous book and others from the series, the characters were familiar to me.
I really got a sense of “coming home” at the start with this novel and a feeling of bring back around family. As a city lover myself, I felt Peggy’s happiness at being back after her adventures running a café in a more rural location. I quickly got a sense of all that was familiar to Peggy and her family.
As the saying goes, you can take someone out of the city but you can’t take the city out of a person. Mulberry Lane and all its inhabitants have a brilliant sense of community and there were always fresh baked goods as Peggy takes immense pride in keeping a good home wherever she lives.
Peggy, or “Peggy of the Lanes” as she’s fondly known, is approachable, trustworthy faithful loving kind helpful patient and just an all-round good person.
I really felt for her and her family when her son was so seriously ill and was wishing so hard that he’d be OK. If someone deserved him to pull through, it was her.
Peggy and her family are people to love and root for. Now than ever they needed the people of the Lane to come together.
But will things work out as expected?
My heart was in my mouth and I was fighting tears at Rosie Clarke’s emotional portrayal of the hard times in this novel. This is one of those books that makes you think “why do they have to go through this?” Surviving a war is one thing and now this.
Rosie Clarke has made this installment of the saga as breathtaking as the rest I have reviewed.
Atmospheric, raw yet also a gentle pace that is absorbing, get ready for another rollercoaster ride in the life of Peggy and family.
Thanks to Rosie Clarke, Rachel’s Random Resources and Boldwood Books for my ARC in exchange for an honest and voluntary review.
