ABOUT THIS BOOK
When Tess finds herself unexpectedly alone and back in Ribblemill, the childhood village she thought she’d escaped, she’s sure she can survive a temporary stay. She’s spent a lifetime making the best of things, hasn’t she?
Determined to throw herself into village life, Tess starts a choir and gathers a team of volunteers to restore the walled garden at Ramblings, the local stately home. Everything could be perfect, if she weren’t sharing a cottage and a cat with a man whose manner is more prickly than the nettles she’s removing…
As winter approaches, Tess finds herself putting down her own roots as fast as she’s pulling them up in the garden. But the ghosts of the past hover close by, and Tess must face them if she’s to discover whether home is where her heart has been all along.
An emotional story of two lost souls who are struggling with issues from their pasts, THE WINTER THAT MADE US by Kate Field, is sure to make you well up while keeping your eyes firmly hooked on the page.
When Tess finds herself taking a sabbatical from work, she returns to her childhood village of Ribblemill which holds so many memories. Wanting to have some independence she rents a cottage which she will share with housemate Noah, a quiet man who prefers solitude and silence. While Tess throws herself into many community projects, Noah prefers his own company but as they begin to get to know each other, it isn't long before they recognise a sort of lost kindred spirit connection between them. But both Tess and Noah are hiding secrets and powerful feelings from their pasts which are holding them back in so many ways. Can they find a way to trust each other and themselves to find some warmth in the Winter that surrounds them?
This story was so much more than what I expected. There is a beautiful village, and a tight-knit community which is always enjoyable in stories like these. The characters are engaging and intriguing and make you want to read more, but there is more to them than just likability. These characters have been through some serious things and as a reader, I really felt for them, I really cared for them and wanted them to find their happiness. This is the hallmark of a wonderful author when you find yourself completely swept up in the emotion of the story.
THE WINTER THAT MADE US by Kate Field is an incredible story about life, friendship, and the importance of leaning on those around you, and I highly recommend it.
