Behind every family there’s a strong woman holding them together
As the wife of esteemed businessman, Jesse Boot, Florence’s position in society is much changed from her quiet life as a shopkeeper’s assistant. Now a lady of means, Florence is expected to act in a way society demands.
And whilst Florence is more than happy to be a dutiful wife and a doting mother, as the Boots empire continues to grow, there is so much more to her than simply being Mama or dearest. Helping the staff and customers who rely on her and the business gives Florence an added purpose.
Can she show society that a woman can have it all…?
A Gorgeous Tale!
A fabulous continuation of the story of the Boots empire!
Florence is now living with her husband and life has changed for her; still determined to be a working woman, she travels to the office each day whilst also caring for the family. Florence never forgets what she wants from life, but can she fit it all in?
I really enjoyed the first in this series, and this next one continues the story whilst moving with the times as it moves into the twentieth century. As the business grows, things are bound to chance in Florence and Jesse’s life as their workload expands, and the author brings everything together quite beautifully. This is a gorgeous tale, excellently written and eminently readable. I’ve been immersed in this novel and, as a former business owner, wonder quite how Mrs Boots manages to accomplish so much! I’m more than happy to recommend this one, and give it 4.5*.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
