Let’s kick off this weekend with a review for the new release from the lovely Katie Ginger, I was really excited to read this book and hope my review encourages you to grab a copy as well!
The wonderful Katie Ginger has done it again, she has created a wonderful world that transports you and makes you feel part of it. I felt like I was with Amelia the whole time and loved getting lost in the descriptions scattered throughout the story of both Meadow Farmhouse and the village.
In this story Katie literally describes my dream home and I was totally swept along as we got to know Amelia and learn how she had come to be living her dream life whilst working in Paris. We soon learn that Amelia had a rocky start in her childhood and experienced a huge trauma early on, as you get to know her history you also gain an insight into Vera and what led to her being the cold Great Aunt who influenced so much of Amelia’s life.
I loved the mystery in this story around the man in the photograph and getting to know the younger Amelia who felt the need to escape her Aunt and not return, until she received the unexpected phone call. A story that lifts your spirit especially when it’s so easy to feel disheartened right now, I laughed, cringed and it left me with a tear in my eye. I loved Meadow Farmhouse and this story has just become one of my absolute favourites by Katie Ginger.
Escape to the countryside with a heart-warming new novel from Katie Ginger, author of Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage.
Amelia loves her life in Paris. But with the surprise inheritance of her childhood home, Meadow Farmhouse, she has no choice but to return to the small village of Meadowbank to restore her great-aunt’s old farmhouse. However returning to Meadowbank means she has to confront her past, including old flame Adam.
When Amelia discovers a locket hidden in the farmhouse, containing the picture of a mysterious World War Two soldier, she starts to uncover the secrets of her great-aunt’s past and is drawn further into village life. Shocked by the warm welcome from the villagers and her own surprising feelings for first love Adam, Amelia is suddenly confused as to where she truly belongs.
Can Amelia finally confront her own past and find where her heart truly calls home?
