Happy Friday all!

Thrilled to be part of the blog tour and share with you my review for this wonderful book! Many thanks to Rachel for my copy of this book and to Kate Field for her delightful words!💕

The Winter That Made Us

When Tess finds herself unexpectedly alone and back in Ribblemill, the childhood village she thought she’d escaped, she’s sure she can survive a temporary stay. She’s spent a lifetime making the best of things, hasn’t she?

Determined to throw herself into village life, Tess starts a choir and gathers a team of volunteers to restore the walled garden at Ramblings, the local stately home. Everything could be perfect, if she weren’t sharing a cottage and a cat with a man whose manner is more prickly than the nettles she’s removing…

As winter approaches, Tess finds herself putting down her own roots as fast as she’s pulling them up in the garden. But the ghosts of the past hover close by, and Tess must face them if she’s to discover whether home is where her heart has been all along.

My Thoughts

Cobwebs! Gardens! Choirs!

This was a beautiful and emotional story about coming home! Nothing beats A book set in a charming small village…. absolutely love the vibe of these small villages, with these adorable named cottages, and in this book the cottage is named Cobweb Cottage…. Love that! Makes me want to name my house….

Tess has returned home to her childhood village… Tess was a very the glass is always half full kind of person…. after returning home she throws herself into multiple charitable projects… starting a village choir and helping restore a garden…. but is all of this to distract her from dealing with some deep dark secrets? Tess’s housemate Noah appears to be her polar opposite… he is a standoffish, brooding, prickly man…. but the more tests and Noah get to know each other the more they realize they have in common…. Will they be able to reveal their secrets to one another and heal their pasts?

Beautifully told this book really pulled at my heartstrings…. this book got quite a bit darker towards the end, but that added such an incredible layer of emotion to the Book… and as secrets were revealed and Noah and Tess got to know each other better, I found them more and more endearing…. this is a book that warms your heart and leaves you feeling giddy! An absolute must read for fans of small town romances filled with lovable characters and lots of secrets💕
