The story has elements of bravery, persistence and humour in its lead character, Edie Browne. It is about her fight to be real, flawed and fight to gain back control of her life
Her fight is against nature, a stroke which left gaps in her memory and cognitive behavior. And to see her make through this trial is the whole community of St. Aidan; where she’s retreated to for recovery. With Edie helping herself and her Aunty Jo, it’s a series of misadventures and loads of fun on the way.
The community around Edie and Jo, is as quirky and beautiful as the art they make. The guys are easy on the eyes and the scene. I enjoyed reading about little Cam and Edie’s relearning goof ups.
A holiday read for the feels, hope and some laughs.
Jane Linfoot is a best selling author, who lives in a muddy cottage, up a steep hill in Derbyshire, with her family, their pets, and an astonishing number of spiders. Although she loves seeing cow noses over the garden wall, she’s happy she can walk to a supermarket.
Jane grew up in North Yorkshire where she spent a lot of her childhood avoiding horizontal gales blowing off the sea, and wrote her first book by accident, while working as an architect, and renovating country houses. While she loves to write feel good books that let readers escape, she’s always surprised to hear her stories make people laugh, admits to (occasionally) crying as she writes, and credits her characters for creating their own story lines.
Jane’s garden would be less brambly if she wasn’t on Facebook and Twitter so often. On days when she wants to be really scared, she rides a tandem.
Her latest books include a series of stand alone novels, based around a seaside wedding shop in Cornwall. Cupcakes and Confetti – The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea, Sequins and Snowflakes – Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop, and Bunting and Bouquets – Summer at the Little Wedding Shop, and most recently, The Little Cornish Kitchen. These are all published by Harper Impulse, an imprint of Harper Collins.
