I love dual time stories and loved both eras in this book.
Lexi is drawn to Hollingsworth house even though her husband has no interest in moving in. Whilst looking round she comes across a diary which makes her more determined to own the house. The diary provides the historical narrative.
There is such a lovely, easy writing style that draws you into both stories. You can imagine the house as it was and loved hearing Lexi’s plans and the way her parents help her to achieve this.
There are some wonderful warm family moments, other relationships come under inspection and above all the house stands majestic promising hope for the future.
I will eagerly look out for more by Annemarie Brear.
