Freya Moorcroft has wild red hair, mischievous green eyes, a warm smile and a heart of gold. She’s been happy working at the café round the corner from Ivy Lane allotments and her romance with her new boyfriend is going well, she thinks, but a part of her still misses the beautiful rolling hills of her Cumbrian childhood home: Appleby Farm.
Then a phone call out of the blue and a desperate plea for help change everything…
The farm is in financial trouble, and it’s taking its toll on the aunt and uncle who raised Freya. Heading home to lend a hand, Freya quickly learns that things are worse than she first thought.
This book was published in 2015 but for some reason I only discovered Cathy Bramley this year – what?!! I know I know, call myself a book reviewer! However the marketing around her recent book A Match Made in Devon was fantastic and definitely worked it seems. So onto Appleby Farm… again, her books are just addictive and warming. Not your typical chick literature… there are twists, turns, romantic encounters, humour and so much more. The scenery is painted perfectly and the characters are incredibly likeable. I can’t wait to read her other earlier publications..and await the next!
