BOOK REVIEW THE HEART OF WINTER BY EMMA HANNIGAN

‘A writer who understands exactly how women think’ Cathy Kelly

Holly Craig’s family have lived happily in Huntersbrook for generations but when times grow hard, even she must admit defeat and sell off their once-successful stables.

The three Craig children, Lainey, Joey and Pippa find themselves locked in a fight to keep their beloved Huntersbrook; dare they transform it into one of Ireland’s most sought after countryside venues?

Renovation work is well underway when life rears its ugly head and everything stops in its tracks. The Craig family is forced to reassess what matters and although they no longer live at Huntersbrook, can the house work its magic even so … and lead them into the light once more?

Thanks to bookbridgr for sending me a copy to review .

I chose this as for my sunday challenge as the theme was a Christmas book .You can find out about the sunday challenge by visiting @thischickreads on twitter .

I read driving home for  Christmas last year and loved it so was so happy to be reunited with the fantastic charactars ,family and location.

I loved this book and was not defeated by the size of it,it held my attention throughout and I was hooked .

The characters all bring their own storylines and personalities to the book .

Despte its beautiful cover and idealic setting it will surprise you when you are reading about quite sensitive subjects such as drug use and pnd .

My favourite character was pippa who was trying to find exactly her place in the family and also in her own skin .

You get a real sense of family loyalty and love .I could relate to holly due to expiring pnd .

I  disliked pippas friend .. il say no more but you find yourself booing her !

Brilliant read about family,love ,secrets hurt and happiness.
