Guest Review by Julie Williams
Another super book by Heidi Swain as we are once again back in Norfolk with the lovely folk from Nightingale Square and Prosperous place. It is always heart-warming to revisit this community and welcome its' new residents.
Freya becomes increasingly unhappy with her life as a horticulturist in Suffolk now that her best friend Eloise has died leaving the house to her nephew who is showing unwelcoming intentions towards her, making her very uncomfortable. So when an opportunity arises after meeting Luke, owner of Prosperous Place and his delightful family near Norwich, Freya does some soul searching and decides to take a risk and accept the job as Gardener.
Luke is very enthusiastic about the grounds and has a loyal local support bunch of people who are more than happy to help out when needed. They all get involved in creating The Winter Garden which is to be enjoyed by locals and visitors. During this time Freya meets Finn who has been commissioned to create some sculptures for the gardens. There is definitely a spark between the two, but there are family issues that need to be addressed on both sides before any romance can blossom.
This is a lovely story that features love, friendship and gardening so it was a perfect read for me to enjoy!
My thanks to Net Galley for the ARC and to Julie Boon for posting my thoughts of this book on her blog.
