Curl up with this uplifting festive read – perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley and Carole Matthews.

‘This wonderful story put a huge smile on my face’ Lucy Coleman

Last winter she had a plan.

Lucy fell in love with tumbledown Rosemary Cottage as a child. So thirty years on, when she loses her city job and discovers the cottage is for sale, it feels like fate. She’ll raise her children in Burley Bridge and transform the cottage into a B with her husband.

But a year can change everything . . .

Now Lucy is juggling two children and a B, but on her own. Christmas looks set to be their last on Rosemary Lane – until she meets James, a face from her past and someone who might offer a different kind of future . . .

Should Lucy leave the cottage behind? Or could this winter on Rosemary Lane be the start of something new?

Praise for Ellen Berry:

‘Warm, funny and poignant’ The Daily Mail

‘A novel as comforting as a slice of homemade apple pie’ Red

’Brilliant . . . manages to capture family life perfectly’ Chick Lit Reviews

It’s beginning to look like Christmas…. And that means one thing, time to get into the Christmas reads. Although, if you’re not into super Christmasy reads then Snowdrops on Rosemary Lane is for you as the book spans several years and Christmas features occasionally. There is also Halloween and Easter involved if that eases  your mind?

While Snowdrops on Rosemary Lane is part of a series that I have yet to read, the book itself feels like it can be read alone. But don’t let that put you off, as with any good book it is easy to pick up.

This was quite an emotional read and I really connected with Lucy and wanted her to succeed.  Both her and her neighbour James have had their ups and downs. But there was something compelling about their relationship.

In regards to Lucy succeeding. I wanted her to succeed not only in finding love, but in adapting to the situation and ‘finding herself’. And was not quite the feel good book that I expected. Yet there was something in the way that grief was shown that was honest. And in a way uplifting. Although stating it as such sounds odd when stated aloud.

This was a wonderful story that shows how powerful childhood memories are and the impact they have on us as grownups. About finding strength, not only in yourself but also those around you. About find joy in any relationship and is one book that I  really cannot wait to read again.
