Frustrated that she spends all her time as either a mum to a football-obsessed teenager or a wife to a workaholic husband, Hannah wants something for herself. When the chance comes to take over the Post Office in Little Maudley, a charming Cotswold village, Hannah grabs it with both hands.
But village life is not so picture-perfect after all: Hannah finds herself an outsider in this tight-knit community where the height of your hedge is a gossip-worthy subject. Even her idea to introduce a small bookshop to the Post Office causes a stir. At least Ben seems to have found his place as he joins the local football team, coached by ex-professional Jake Lovatt. But a shocking secret from their past threatens to uproot the new life they’ve made for themselves, and has drastic consequences . . .
This is my first book by Rachael, and I found it a nice easy pick me up read. It is written well and the story flows well throughout, I liked the sound of the storyline and wondered what Hannah would do with the post office, but how will the villagers react to her bringing her family to this small village where outsiders are under scrutiny. It is such a warm and kind hearted story that I now want to read all of Rachael’s other books. This story truly was everything and certainly didn’t disappoint.
