family for beginners

My thoughts…

I absolutely adore Sarah’s books and was definitely not disappointed by her latest publication. To have new releases so regularly from Sarah and to not have the quality and content compromised is a real treat. Each one of her books that I’ve read I’ve really felt that a lot of time, love and effort has gone into the book.

This book is both heart-warming and heart-breaking. Equal amounts of anguish and love pour from the pages as Sarah delicately explores the trials and tribulations of a blended family. Grief, secrets, friendships, relationships and new beginnings are all covered in this book with a strongly compelling narrative. Sarah Morgan is one of my favourite authors not least because of her characterisation. She’s truly talented at creating characters that you’ll love – flaws and everything.

If that review hasn’t convinced you you can read an excerpt of this book over on Sarah’s website – which I can guarantee will have you hooked!

About the book…

When Flora falls in love with Jack, suddenly she’s not only handling a very cranky teenager, but she’s also living in the shadow of Jack’s perfect, immortalised wife, Becca. Every summer, Becca and Jack would holiday with Becca’s oldest friends and Jack wants to continue the tradition, so now Flora must face a summer trying to live up to Becca’s memory, with not only Jack’s daughter looking on, but with Becca’s best friends judging her every move…
The more Flora tries to impress everyone, the more things go horribly wrong…but as the summer unfolds, Flora begins pushing her own boundaries, and finding herself in a way that she never thought she needed to. And she soon learns that families come in all shapes and sizes.
