Newly qualified vet Mandy Hope is leaving Leeds – and her boyfriend Simon – to return to the Yorkshire village she grew up in, where she’ll help out with animals of all shapes and sizes in her parents’ surgery.
But it’s not all plain sailing: Mandy clashes with gruff local Jimmy Marsh, and some of the villagers won’t accept a new vet. Meanwhile, Simon is determined that Mandy will rejoin him back in the city.
When tragedy strikes for her best friend James Hunter, and some neglected animals are discovered on a nearby farm, Mandy must prove herself. When it comes to being there for her friends – and protecting animals in need – she’s prepared to do whatever it takes…
This gorgeous and heartwarming novel, based on the globally bestselling Animal Ark series.
I was so excited when I saw that Lucy Daniels had a new book out, I grew up reading her young children books that were a series called Animal Ark. I loved them and have recently purchased a set of them to re-read again. This story brings us up to date with Mandy and what is happening in her life now. I love the fact when she comes back to Welford that she meets people she recognises when she was growing up. Her best friend James Hunter is back too and when he has a tragedy in his life Mandy is there to look after him. As for all the animals well, there are some really cute ones, I would love to be there and help Mandy, she has a lovely job and I can’t wait to see what she gets up to next. I am so looking forward to the next book which is not out till November.
