Blurb; It takes a village…
Cloverdale is known for its winding roads, undulating hills and colourful cottages, and more recently, its Library of Shared Things. Need a ladder, a hedge trimmer or a waffle-maker? You can borrow it from the Library of Shared Things.
Single dad Adam is doing a good job of raising his daughter, Zoe, whilst burying his past and moving forwards. When he agrees to run a mending workshop at the Library, new friendships start to blossom.
Jennifer is a volunteer at the Library. When her younger sister Isla moves back to Cloverdale after their mother dies, Jennifer finds herself wondering whether Isla is hiding something.
And when Adam’s daughter Zoe makes a startling discovery, it’s time for the people at the Library of Shared Things to pull together and help one family with its biggest challenge of all.
My Review; Happy Publication Day! Cloverdale is a cute little village, full of friendly neighbours and friends. When Adam and his two children arrive in the town they settle in nicely, make friends and feel at home… BUT… There’s a secret Adam brings with him that could change everything and where is the childrens mother? Hmmmm.
I enjoyed reading this one. The way it is written and told so you’re assuming the worse when actually towards the end it makes you feel bad. Ooops. Well it did for me. I got it totally wrong. Poor Adam. What a lovely man. Seems to perfect bless him. The end gets a bit emotional and teary but a brilliant, uplifting and inspiring story after all.
A well deserved four stars from me. Loved the town and characters. Highly recommend. When you live in a small town nothing stays secret for long. I’d love to live in Cloverdale and loved the idea of the shared library. Brilliant.
