A Home For Broken Hearts By Rowan Coleman

A Home For Broken Hearts By Rowan Coleman

home-for-broken-hearts
Is there a cure for a broken heart?

Once upon a time, Ellen Woods had her ‘happily ever after’ moment when she married her beloved Nick. But fifteen years later her husband’s tragic death leaves her alone with their soon-to-become-a-teenager son and a mountain of debt.

On the verge of losing the family home Ellen decides to rent out some rooms, and all too soon a whole host of characters enter her ordered but fragile existence – each with their own messy life in tow. But will this be enough to pull her out of her grief so she can learn to live – and love – again?

My Thoughts:

This was such a brilliant and emotional read, Rowan tackles some serious issues in this book that I think some people will be able to relate to. I loved all the characters, I felt really sorry for Ellen and to see how she struggled day to day, but she got there in the end.

I loved Charlie and thought he sounded such a fantastic boy to help look after his mum and he did make me chuckle a few times too. This was a heart warming story that made me want to read it really quickly so that I could find out what happened to all the characters.

Beautiful Trees By Nik Perring

Beautiful Trees By Nik Perring

In this series we follow the lives of Lucy, Lily and Alexander through words, trees and shapes.

In the second of the series, Beautiful Trees, the stories of Lucy Lily and Alexander unravel amidst the roots and leaves of our favourite trees.

My Thoughts:

This is like a picture book for adults, you get to learn all about the different trees which I found really interesting but you also get to meet Alexander and Lily and see their relationship and their love of trees. It is a very interesting mix and I absolutely loved it. It is a very relaxing read as Nik seems to bring a poetic side to the words. Such a clever way to bring a book to life.

A little girl is missing. Her parents are hiding something. Who will pay the price?

When eight-year-old Jasmine Peterson goes missing, the police want to know everything.

What is local park ranger, Sam McIntyre, running away from and why did he go out of his way to befriend a young girl?

Why can’t Jasmine’s mother and father stand to be in the same room as each other?

With every passing minute, an unstoppable chain of events hurtles towards a tragic conclusion.

Everyone has secrets. The question is: who will pay the price?

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to get a advanced copy of this book. I had never read any of Amanda Brooke’s books before and was intrigued to do so. There are lots of twists and turns in this book but I did guess what was going to happen quite early on. It doesn’t mean I did not enjoy it as I did. The story goes into detail and there is some good descriptions into the characters. I would like to read another of Amanda’s books and see what they are like.
