ReadAlongWithSue Sue Ward –
Maddy had every reason to leave the market town of Havenbury Magna three years ago, as you will discover as you read along.
On returning with trepidation she goes and because she must, she returns to help an old friend Patrick who runs the local pub.
This was just so much more than I was expecting.
Maddie gets flashbacks and suffered with anxiety over what happened in her past, it portrays in many ways.
Because Patrick is unwell she helps to oversee the running of the pub. This brings even more surprises and problems.
There are loves lost to be rekindled……maybe.
Shocks and surprises and occasional lies used for the best intent.
I listened to this on audio and found the narrator very good indeed and easy to follow.
This author can really tell a believable everyday story that you find yourself relating in parts to the characters.
A very enjoyable time I had them.
