Genre: Women’s Fiction
My Rating: 5 out of 5
Rowan Forrester has it all – the happy marriage, the adorable dog, the good friends, the promising business and even the dream home after she and her husband Tom win a stunning but slightly dilapidated Georgian townhouse in London at auction.
But in the blink of an eye, Rowan’s picture-perfect life comes crashing down around her and she is faced with the prospect of having to start again.
To make ends meet she begins a search for housemates, and in doing so opens the door to new friends and new beginnings. But could she be opening the door to new heartbreak too?
From the very first page, I knew I was going to love this book!
Rowan is a character you just can’t help loving, and feeling sorry for. She appears to have everything – a beautiful home, a baby on the way and an amazing husband in Tom, but tragedy strikes, and Rowan is left on her own, to try and pick up the pieces of her life, and start all over again.
With her new home being far too big and too expensive for just her, Rowan makes the very hard decision to take in lodgers, and prepares herself for a whole lot of new beginnings.
The storyline is heartbreaking, and at times I read with tears in my eyes, hoping for happier times for Rowan. And thankfully, the happier times were just around the corner.
Magnolia House is a truly heart-warming story of love, warmth and new beginnings. An absolute must-read.
