Hay Bales and Hollyhocks By Sheila Newberry

Hay Bales and Hollyhocks By Sheila Newberry


The Cambridge Fens, 1938.

Little Rosanna is part of a close-knit Fenland family and the youngest of three cousins. In a time of childhood abandon and adventures on the water, life couldn’t be more perfect.

But things are not always as they seem. When Rosanna’s new baby brother is born, tragedy strikes the family. And, with the outbreak of World War Two just around the corner, and a move to the Norfolk countryside, Rosanna’s life is changed forever. And, as she and the family grow together, she realises that to find happiness, we sometimes have to break away from the things we know.

My Thoughts:

I was sent an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. What a delightful read. This is my second book by Sheila and I really enjoyed it. The story is all about little Rosanna and what happens to her and her family as World War Two strikes. It is interesting to read about that era and I learnt things I didn’t even know. A lovely warm hearted read.
