When Sally’s husband, Alexander, is diagnosed with a life changing illness they are forced into putting their family home “Hunter’s Moon” up for sale. A lifetime of happy memories is tied up in this home and now the family are about to have their world turned upside down.
Veronica Henry paints a glorious picture of Hunter’s Moon, with its lattice windows and wisteria I was seduced by it from page one, but with the author’s words “nothing lasts forever” at the start of this story I knew it would be an interesting read that wasn’t all roses around the door.
The reader is taken back to 1967, when Sally met Alexander and came to Hunter’s Moon for the first time. It is easy to see how the young and impressionable Sally fell in love with the house and family as it opens up a whole new world to her. Alexander’s mother is a colourful creation, a famous author who is impossibly glamourous. The family happily absorb Sally into their world. I loved meeting the characters as young people, to see the things that shaped their lives, and the whole 60’s vibe.
This story is full of colour and life with great characters and an addictive story and the pages flew by. Every character has a story with a hook that makes each one a delight to read. This is an experienced author at her very best (my favourite of Veronica Henry’s so far). The forever house is about love, life and the passing of time and how everyone has a story and yearns for a place to belong. It has a most beautiful ending – just keep the tissues handy!
Thank you to the publishers and NetGalley for an opportunity to review this book.
Hunter's Moon was the focal point in the story, almost a character in itself around which the people who live there have spent much of their lives. It's a focal point, a place to come together, a place to fall in love and a place to heal. The house is special and it may sound silly to claim a building is special but in this case through such generous descriptions and emotive writing the reader can not fail to fall in love with this house. Its charm, its back story, its residents and the new chapter the house is about to embark on all made for a captivating, emotional read enhanced by the exceptional writing of Veronica Henry.
The Forever House is once again set in the village of Peasebrook, home to Nightingale books as featured in How to Find Love in a Bookshop.Read more ›
You know when you're getting older when you dream of interior design, garden landscape and owning your very own house. Thinking about it, it really isn't THAT much to ask is it? Well, unless you're Belinda then yes, it is. Belinda Baxter gets to be amongst beautiful houses day in day out, as it's her job to help other people find their 'Forever House', whilst secretly dreaming of her own. What's even more bittersweet is that Belinda was SO close to owning that dream home, starting her dream life and actually feeling quite positive about her future; until the rug was pulled from under her of course. My first thought was 'will Belinda get her happily ever after?', as she was helping other people to find their dream home and not getting her own. Surely working as an Estate Agent with that mind set is similar to dangling a carrot in front of a horse?
I warmed to Belinda pretty much instantly. She came across as such a warm natured personality with an incredibly huge heart; how could someone hurt a personality like hers? All Belinda wanted was a happy life, a life to be proud of after all these years, and as a reader, I longed for her dream to finally come true.Read more ›
