I was shocked by this latest offering as it seems like a completely different type of book to the ones Tilly usually writes but I absolutely loved it. I admit in the beginning it seemed a little slow but I realise now there was somewhat of a build up describing The Mill and Lizzie’s new place she was living in. Following the death of her Father Lizzie takes a leap of faith in buying the old mill and has dreams of returning it to it’s former glory. At first it seems Lizzie bumps into and falls for her neighbour Jude and if I am honest I figured this would be a typical love story etc and I would get bored. Well, luckily for me this wasn’t the case and in all honesty Jude was just an addition to the story.
What actually transpires is an emotional journey of not just Lizzie but all the women in her life. The story is centered around her working on the Mill, but in reality we get to explore her journey alongside her sister Gracie, her Mother Gwendolyn and her stepmother Florentina. I ploughed through this book in two sittings and finished it with a feeling that this was a rather refreshing and slightly different book to her usual offerings (not that they are bad, because they most certainly aren’t). I absolutely loved it and although the story came to a nice conclusion I would love to revisit all of these women and see what happens to them further down the road.
