“Rowan Hill means many things to many people, but to Ellie Hesketh it represents new beginnings. Putting her life back together after a break-up is going to take time, but the crumbling country estate—as much in need of TLC as she is—seems the perfect place to do it.
But Ellie is not the only person for whom Rowan Hill is a refuge. There’s Will, damaged and complicated, whose secrets almost nobody knows. And Finn, his brother, who’s finally decided to stop running from his own past. As Ellie is drawn further into saving the estate, she can’t help but try saving the brothers too—and she’s sure she knows just how to go about it. The trouble is, she’s been accused of meddling before…
By turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, this story of friendship, forgiveness and unexpected romance reveals the lies we tell to hide dark secrets—and what can happen when we let in a little light.”
What a beautiful book- and I will be eagerly looking out for Emma’s next book The cover is enough to tempt you to pick it up and then you are drawn into the wonderful story and great characters. A lovely easy writing style allows you to lose yourself within the pages and leaves you feeling as though you know everyone so well and can imagine living in Rowan Hill. It becomes a real place to you. You become immersed in village life.
Friendship and romance run through the book along with a little tension along the way. Moving to the village is going to help with the healing process, after Ellie goes through a break up. She’s staying in a crumbly house in exchange for helping to bring it back to life. She’s hoping that it will have the same effect on her life.
