Pre-publication review and apart of blog tour.
A beautiful story of enduring love and heartbreaking choices.
As Christmas 1926 approaches, the Forbes family are preparing to host a celebration at Eden Hall. Eighteen-year-old Daisy is preoccupied by a sense of change in the air. Overnight, her relationship with Stephen Jessop, the housekeeper’s son, has shifted and every encounter seems fraught with tension. Before the festivities are over, Daisy has received a declaration of love, a proposal and a kiss – from three different men. Unable to bear the confusion she flees to London and stay with her elder sister.
By the following summer, Daisy has bowed to the persistence of the man who proposed to her the previous year. When the family reunite for a party at Eden Hall and Stephen is once more in her life, it is clear to Daisy she is committing to the wrong person. Yet she also believes that family secrets mean she has no choice but to follow her head instead of her heart. Will love conquer all, or is Daisy’s fate already written?
Review: This was an enchanting book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Judith Kinghorn writes with a lot of depth to her writing. This is the kind of book I have been waiting for, for a while. A story about a family and their trails and tribulations.
It was lovely written book with depth. The characters especially our heroine Daisy is very likeable. She has such confusing feelings and for a girl so young it is no wonder she flees. With a little mystery surrounding her love it makes the story very interesting.
I can’t praise Judith enough for this book. It is delightful and the best bits for me was reading about Christmas and the preparation alongside all the family issues that occurs.
A truly wonderful book that I will come back to again and again.
