About the book
A family secret
One shocking argument and ten-year-old Alice Parker’s world was turned upside down. Her peaceful life at Honeysuckle Farm in the quiet rural village of Brook Bridge swapped for the bustling metropolis of New York City. Alice’s life was changed forever…
A second chance
Now, thirteen years later, Alice’s American dream is over. With her life in tatters, there is only one place Alice wants to be… home at Honeysuckle Farm. So, when Alice learns her beloved Grandie is ill, she knows this is her last chance to heal the family rift.
A forever home?
But secrets still swirl in Brook Bridge, and Alice is no closer to discovering the truth. And for some reason her new friendship with local heartthrob Sam Reid seems to be making the locals tense.
Sick of the lies Alice knows it’s time to lay the past to rest once and for all. But could the truth ruin her hopes of ever calling Honeysuckle Farm home again?
This was a book I just enjoyed so much, from that very first page to the last I was hooked! The story itself is just emotional and I had tears in my eyes a few times!
The characters in this you just instantly warm to, something has happened to tear this little family who used to be so close and for this to happen you just know whatever it was that caused this was big! So there was a lot of drama!
Alice is just a strong character desperate for her family to make peace, and my heart just goes out to her.
With Christie's books the way she describes things is just amazing, she makes it so easy to imagine what the places, characters and everything look like. I honestly felt like I was there too!
And can I just say that I have fallen in love with 'Wild Rose Cottage' and I really want to move there it just sounds so beautiful and cosy!
What I loved the most about this book was it was unpredictable, no matter how much you guess you just don't know what is going to happen next and how its going to end.
