Product Description

Book Description

It may be winter, but in the Devonshire village of Burracombe there is always warmth and friendship, no matter what troubles arise...

From the Inside Flap

In the village of Burracombe, nothing stays secret for long and behind the peaceful, rural charm, there's always a scandal to uncover, a newcomer to the village to set tongues wagging, a happy occasion to celebrate or friends to help their neighbours through the tough times.

It's December 1953. As the village prepares for the festivities, for many people, a happy Christmas is by no means certain. Recovering from a car-crash, Stella Simmons, the winter wedding that she and her sweetheart had planned seems impossible.

Elsewhere in the village, Jackie Tozer is dreaming of America and Hilary Napier, who thought the war had robbed her of her chance of happiness, has to ask herself if she could ever imagine leaving her life at the big house for the sake of love and adventure. The darkest time of the year finds everyone asking questions with no easy answer.

As snow falls softly on the village, and everyone wishes for peace and joy, Burracombe proves once again that there's always a surprise around the corner.

Snowfall in Burracombe by Lilian Harry is a book which I highly recommend especially to those who like me follow this author's career and have fallen in love with the village of Burracombe and its many inhabitants. From the first book of the series I have enjoyed having a nosy through the windows of the many homes of Burracombe watching each of the villagers lives develop in exciting and loving ways. This is the seventh book of the series and I have enjoyed each one and for me this one was as good as the earlier books of this series though with this book there was a more serious tone but one which showed the deep love the villagers had and showed how they supported each other as these villagers were more than neighbours they were friends. It spoke to me how life was back then when people knew who lived next door to each other and they were involved in each other's lives. Lilian Harry is wonderful at showing how life was really like a few decades ago which for me makes her books more enjoyable.
From the moment I started to read Snowfall in Burracombe I was once again brought straight into the lives of the villagers as this book continues from Lilian Harry's last book Secrets in Burracombe as only a couple of days have passed. The villagers are recovering from the news that Stella their beloved school teacher and future wife of the ex-curate of Burracombe church but now actual minister of Little Burracombe Felix Copley has been involved in an accident on the moors and now lies seriously injured in hospital.

By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER on 25 Oct. 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
I've liked another of this author's works, but came to this series as a newcomer and the tale does not read well as a standalone. The town on Dartmoor is no doubt well described, and the fifties setting, but we are plunged into the on-going lives of a cast of about thirty characters who are all followed separately.

The main plotlines seemed to be two in number. One young woman was in a car which collided with ponies on a road (I would have liked to know what happened to the ponies but wasn't told) and now she lies in hospital unconscious. When she comes around she has some background memory but amnesia. The rest of the story follows her anxious fiancé as he learns that the planned wedding in one month will have to be postponed, because the lady has spinal nerve damage and how much movement she'll regain is not known. Treatments of the day are described.

Another young woman met a doctor when they served abroad during the war, and has now met him again only to find that he went and married the fiancée after all though they appear never to have loved each other, so I didn't see why. Divorces being so difficult and expensive at the time he wants to keep seeing the other girl on the quiet. However she's also married but falls recklessly in love with him again and the whole story is full of "oh we mustn't" as they dramatise their otherwise quiet lives. This does bring home how old-fashioned the fifties were with regard to personal freedom.

The whole town however is followed as they prepare for Christmas and visit the pub; lovers of country tales who are following the series may love the book but the depressing circumstances and jumble of too many characters meant I did not enjoy the read.

I was not disappointed by this book, at one point i actually found myself laughing out loud. It isn't all humour it is touching and as is usual with Lillian Harry's books i felt transported to Burracombe itself.

Waited what seemed ages for this book to be published. I wasn't disappointed, the only disappointment was it finished. Will Felix ever be happy, Miss Napier get what she wants? For all Burracombe lovers it leaves you wanting the next book.

I'm still reading this book, and I'm loving it, my heart breaks in two in some place of the book, as two of the characters are going through hell, there's been a few feathers ruffled in one family , due to major changes, but they are having to accept what's happening, Jackie is testing her parents, big time!
The Nativity play, is funny, children say funny things at times, and although they have been told what they have to say, quite often, they don't, and in this story, the I think they mean adlib, much to the annoyance of there teacher, but it ends up being the best Nativity play they've ever had.
One thing I'm pleased about is, Maddy, is happy, and Stella has come to her senses, I hope the next book, sees them happy with their men.

This writer is one of my favourites. Here original books were set in Portsmouth where I lived for many years. This book is excellent and follows on from the previous book in the series. The people seem very real and it is well written.

I love this series of books as having been born and brought up in Devon, and still having family living in the Okehampton area I can picture a lot of the places mentioned in the book. i.e. Kelly College, Princetown roads, Plymouth etc. A visit back to Devon wouldn't be complete without a trip to Tavistock!! Regarding the book, I thoroughly enjoyed it but perhaps not as much as some of the other Burracombe books. I feel Stella's hospital stay is dragging on a bit too long....would have liked to know the outcome of her injuries in this book. However, I'll just have to be patient and wait for the next book in the series! All in all though it's another great easy read from this author.
