Publisher's Summary

One twinkling winter's night, Ruby wakes her sleeping children and escapes for a new life in the countryside. It's a choice that will change her life beyond all recognition.

Arriving at the cosy little rental cottage as the first snow begins to fall, Ruby doesn't regret leaving her bully of a husband for a moment, but she does feel guilty about uprooting her kids so close to Christmas. She can only wish that one day soon her son will forgive her.  

It's not long before the family are settled in and drinking hot chocolate by the fire, the flames kept roaring by a neighbouring woodsman called Angus. 

As big as a tree, but as gentle as a dormouse, all Ruby's instincts tell her to be wary of letting this gorgeous stranger get too close. Is that the first tingle of festive magic Ruby can feel? Or might it even be hope?  

As Christmas Day approaches and a blizzard sparks a power cut across the entire village, Ruby must force herself to believe in Christmas miracles again. Was she right to put her trust in Angus? With only flickering candles to guide her through the darkness, will she ever find her way back to the light?   

Wrap yourself up in this utterly gorgeous festive romance, perfect for anyone who loves Heidi Swan, Jenny Colgan, Lucy Diamond and Christmas!

Magical, Emotional, New and old Friends

Five stars for Emma Davies complex characters and five for Alison Campbell's beautiful narration. You will love the characters, feel their joys, pain, frustration, love and triumph. Joy's Acre is a place I love to return to again and again. Getting to know the new guests in the thatched cottages, and how they interact with the staff and owners of Joy's Acre is an amazing journey. I feel as if I'm catching up with old friends and making new ones. Love this series!

Vague and Irritating

The narrator performs actually very nicely when she occasionally forgets to use the irritating whispering or exaggerating high toned unnatural voices and intonation.
After a ridiculously overdone (both story and narrating), but completely uninteresting visit to a bridal shop, while any real story is nowhere to be found (yet?), I have stopped.

Awful narration

The narrators style is best suited to reading bedtime stories to a 5 year old.
