'I may be biased, as I also grew up in a small village in East Sussex like the author, but found the story a heartwarming tale. I have lived abroad for 30 years and she brought me back home
again. Rebecca sets a scene and brings characters vividly alive in the imagination. A wonderful feel good story that has helped me to beat the January blues, what with reading this two weeks to the day since Christmas Day. For a first novel it is pretty impressive.
I couldn't put it down. Loved the twist on the usual love story angle. Highly recommend this new author. I will be looking out for the next one! Thanks, Rebecca.' W R BERENTSEN
