What will be will be…
Belinda Marshall’s idyllic teenage life in Brittany, France, fell apart when her parents dramatically separated and her mother took her back
Fast forward thirty-five years when Belinda’s world is once again turned upside down.
It’s the week before Christmas and Belinda’s employer ‘surprises’ her by asking for her help to rejuvenate their latest investment, a run-down campsite in Brittany.
Memories and anxieties that had lain dormant for years suddenly begin to resurface.
As secrets from a lost life threaten to overwhelm her, there is a realisation that maybe she wasn’t told the whole truth by her mother all those years ago.
Can Belinda reconcile her emotions and find happiness once more in the place she so loved and called home?
Ideal Holiday Read!
What a lovely read! A complete tale with a beginning, a middle and a satisfactory ending.
Belinda hasn’t returned to France since her parents split up when she was a teenager – her mother returned to England with her and she never saw her father again. Now divorced and close to her daughter and family, Belinda has never considered returning to Brittany until her employers send her to oversee the run down campsite they have just added to their business, tasked with bringing it up-to-date and taking guests as soon as possible. Can Belinda survive this journey full of past memories?
Jennifer Bohnet certainly pens an interesting tale full of believable characters and situations. I loved how the story develops with Belinda making new friendships and the introductions of other threads, keeping my attention throughout. There are just enough details of french food to make my mouth water as I read, and I always melt a little when characters have a canine friend in tow! A well-written, well-planned novel with engaging characters and scenic locations, this is an ideal holiday read especially this year when many of us go no further than our own back gardens! Recommended to lovers of the genre and earning a full four stars.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy and Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
