Product Description

About the Author

Traci Borum is a writing teacher and native Texan. She’s also an avid reader of women’s fiction, most especially Elin Hilderbrand and Rosamunde Pilcher novels. Since the age of 12, she’s written poetry, short stories, magazine articles, and novels. Traci also adores all things British. She even owns a British dog (Corgi) and is completely addicted to Masterpiece Theater–must be all those dreamy accents! Aside from having big dreams of getting a book published, it’s the little things that make her the happiest: deep talks with friends, a strong cup of hot chocolate, a hearty game of fetch with her Corgi, and puffy white Texas clouds always reminding her to “look up, slow down, enjoy your life.”

When Holly Newbury's mother died unexpectedly, Holly decided to move back into her family's home and help her father take care of her younger sisters. Now, a few years later, the family is in a better place and Holly decides it is time to finally start thinking about herself again and move on with her life. She likes her part-time job at the local gallery, but she's missing something to make her feel complete. When a film production for a new adaptation of Jane Austen's 'Emma' comes to the area, the whole town is excited, including Holly. She bumps into one of the American authors of the film script, Fletcher Hays, and they immediately get along. Holly's life is finally about to change, but will she be able to really choose herself and not just think about others in this particular instance...?

I just loved being back in Chilton Crosse in this second part of Traci Borum's series and if possible I loved this story even more than the first one! Traci managed to create a wonderful setting with the cosy village of Chilton Crosse and all its colourful inhabitants that each have a story of their own to tell. 'Finding the Rainbow' focuses on twenty-something Holly Newbury, a heroine whom is incredibly easy to like and warm to. Holly has taken care of her younger sisters the last couple of years after their mother's death and because of this she hasn't really managed to build up her own life. I was rooting for Holly from the start and really enjoyed reading her story. However, the novel doesn't solely focus on Holly; her sisters, father and other characters often make an appearance and also all have their own bit of storyline, which resulted in a thoroughly enjoyable tale in which all of that comes together.

For the past six years Holly Newbury, being several years older than her sisters, stepped into the role of caring for and raising her younger sisters when their mother passed away unexpectedly from an aneurysm. Their father, Duncan, struggled with depression for months and hid himself away from the family in his home office. He is still practically non-existent in family affairs.

Chilton Crosse is a picturesque English community where everyone practically knows everyone else. It was nice to re-visit and learn about more people in this town. It is big news when a film company chooses an estate at the end of town to film the movie Emma. Everyone gets in the spirit and are lucky enough to play extras in the process of filming. Emma is one of Holly’s favorite Jane Austen stories. She decides everyone should read the book since the movie is being filmed there. She organizes a book club to be held at her cantankerous Aunt Gertrude’s house to try to draw her into the town’s excitement. She even invites Fletcher Hays, the American playwright who adapted the book for the big screen, as their resident Emma expert. They become fast friends and the book club is a huge success.

Each chapter is opened with a Jane Austen quote, which ties into the story. The plot is character driven with many twists that draws different family members into the spotlight. Family secrets are exposed, which must be dealt with, a teenage infatuation goes awry, and a hidden emotional time bomb explodes. To top all of this off Holly is suddenly struck how much her life parallels Emma. This turned into a satisfying read that left a smile on my face.

FYI: This is Book 2 from the Chilton Crosse Series, however it can be read as a stand-alone story.

Format/Typo Issues: I was given an advance reader’s copy but I noticed no glaring proofing errors.

HASH(0x977601c8) out of 5 stars Finding the Rainbow 31 Mar. 2015
By Katie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
When Holly's mother died, Holly chose to remain at home to help her newly widowed father care for her younger sisters. Now, six years later, Holly is wanting to love and be loved and marry. Fletcher, a Texan, arrives in Chilton Crosse with film makers from America to make the movie "Emma," by Jane Austen. Fletcher and Holly meet and become friends, they are definitely there for one another. To celebrate the arrival of the film makers and the filming of "Emma," a book group is started in the community and it is decided the group will begin by reading and discussing, "Emma."

Welcome back to Chilton Crosse! This is the second book in a series. I was thrilled to discover so many references to "Emma" in Traci's new book. "Emma," by Jane Austen is my favorite! Yes, that's right, Emma and Mr. Knightley won out over Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett. But, I digress. At the beginning of each chapter there is a quote by Jane Austen. I liked that!

In "Finding the Rainbow," we meet new friends in Chilton Crosse and we get a glimpse into the lives of old friends as well. This story is so much about the importance of family! The Newbury family is a loving close-knit family, but changes are coming and with changes, challenges.

Holly has so many wonderful memories of her loving mother, which the author shares with the reader and I enjoyed reading each and every memory. At one point in the story, the author brought me to tears!

Make yourself a steaming cup of hot tea or chocolate, sit in a comfy chair and travel, once again, to Chilton Crosse!

A special and sincere thank-you to the author for providing me with a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review.

FABULOUS!! A book that can transport you to a different place and introduce to you new friends is just the best! To spend the day smiling, laughing and crying with them is a great way to spend the day!!! Traci Borum has her way with words. She is a master at putting together a sentence that delights all five senses! I am looking forward to her next book!

HASH(0x975eccc0) out of 5 stars Come back and visit an old friend.... 28 Mar. 2015

Another satisfying read by Traci Borum! Revisit Chilton Crosse; eat at Joe's Pub, stop by Noelle's art gallery, shop at Mrs. Pickering's market....It's such a pleasure to come back to this delightful village and catch up with old friends.
Holly, who we first meet in Painting the Moon, has been putting her dreams on hold for several years as she takes care of her father and sisters after the death of her mother. She knows that there is something more out there for her, but the opportunity just hasn't arrived. Then the unexpected happens with the arrival of a movie crew to film Emma by Jane Austen.
This is the 2nd book in a series, but you really don't have to read the first one to enjoy this one. It reminds me of the Mitford series by Jan Karon,where you grow to love a community and its townspeople as you read each book. It makes me want to travel to Chilton Crosse and visit all the neat places and see the lush landscape. If you are a fan of her first book, you'll appreciate getting some glimpses of Noelle and Adam several times in this book.
Holly is a very likable character and her dedication to her family is very touching. The romance is G rated and builds slowly, just as it would in a Jane Austen novel. Friendship comes first, which is always the foundation for great romances that last a lifetime. You happy endings fans will not be disappointed. *sigh* I can't wait to see who we get to learn more about in her 3rd book!!

HASH(0x97a0b8ac) out of 5 stars Good book, but nothing incredible. 21 Jun. 2015

I definitely thought I was going to fall head over heals for this book…but that didn’t happen. But first, let’s get things straight…that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. This book was an enjoyable contemporary, but with contemporary and romance being my go-to genre, this one just didn’t take the cake.

It was a very cute story and it ended how I thought it would (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing), but I wanted more. I didn’t really connect with the main characters, which was fairly disappointing. From the synopsis I thought I would love Holly. She seemed like such a loving character who would do anything for anyone…which in fact she was, but there was something about her (that I can not put my nose on) that just rubbed me the wrong way. I know it’s hard to say that in a review because you aren’t forewarning readers on what it might be, but hey, that happens to the best of us.

This book is a good read if you want something contemporary and some-what predictable…Like I said, it was a good book, but nothing to blow me out of the water.

HASH(0x975e3630) out of 5 stars Wonderful read 21 Jun. 2015
By Donna McBroom-Theriot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a fan of Jane Austin and wasn't sure if I would like Finding the Rainbow or Painting the Moon. Turns out, I loved both of the books. Traci Borum is a great writer and when she puts a pen to paper, she turns out a magnificent read.

Finding the Rainbow was a book that I could not put down. I loved all of the Jane Austen quotes throughout the book. I love the story and while I would love to tell you the ending, I won't.

The setting of the book is a small town in England and the author's descriptions provide the reader with a wonder backdrop to the story. The characters are fun and loving. The small town saga reminds me a little of the Mitford series by Jan Karon. Although it is not necessary to read one book before the other, you will want to know all of the characters as they co-exist in the same town.

Finding the Rainbow is everything you expect from a fan of Jane Austin. I hope you'll read it.

I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. more at www.mylifeonestoryatatime.com
