Jane Leonard is a seventy year old Lady who has suddenly found herself living alone in Magnolia House. Just 12 months previous she shared the house with her beloved Son and his family.
So much can happen in just 12 month. Jane never imagined that she would have to sell the house that holds so many precious and sometime very painful memories spanning five decades. With huge reluctance Magnolia is put on the Market. Love and betrayal, hopes and dreams and ultimately family loyalty will affect the lives of all of those who become involved.
Can Jane actually let go of Magnolia House and move on? Will new friendships actual help heal old wounds? One lady’s actions can change the lives of many around her.
What Pauline has written here is an amazing emotional story wrapped in so much sorrow but with the faintest hint of hope as you turn each page. The book starts with a group of people who are interwoven into the story but with no connection to the house.
I have read a number of books this year that have moved me, but non so much as this one. This really is a gorgeous story that made me have tears streaming down more often than not. I loved the way you get to understand why Jane is like she is, the way she relates and reacts to people who come around her. This book gives me hope!
This is the 3rd book of Pauline’s I have read and with each of them there is a real beautiful feel to them. Pauline really knows how to hold the reader’s attention and be desperate to know what happens next with her writing. I’m an a big fan of Pauline’s work. (Adore the new cover too!) It’s also really important for me to point out that this is a self published book and to me just shows the fantastic talent that these books can have. Never ever dismiss a self published Author, in my opinion, I have found that they are as good and in some cases better than those published by a big Publishing house.
Wonderful story Pauline, thank you x
