PART TWO of a serialised novel – a heartwarming and inspiring story about living the simple life and the joy of animals.
Working as the receptionist at her local London vets, Sam dreams of escaping to a quieter life in the country. Spending time with her Nana and her lovely but elderly dog Rufus has sparked something within Sam, and all she wants is to start afresh. But her boyfriend Adam is in London, and something tells her that it won’t be an easy conversation.
But then something happens that makes her going-nowhere receptionist job seem much more appealing: she finds a little stray cat called Ebony, in need of love and nurturing back to health. Faced with a dilemma, she must choose between her heart’s desire and the little ball of fluff burrowing her way into Sam’s heart…
Is it possible to have it all?
Thank you to Ebury Publishing for my copy of this book via Netgalley. As soon as I finished Part 1 I was eager to start part 2.
The story continues right where part 1 left off with Sam telling Adam the big news. Adam reacts exactly as expected and it will be no surprise to readers that Sam doesn’t stay in London. While everyone thinks she’s making a mistake Sam knows n her heart that there’s nowhere else she should be but at her Nana’s.
This part of the story gives us a little more on Sam as well as the villagers in her new home. The story focuses a little bit on loneliness and I think it is important to highlight how this affects lots of different people.
This isn’t a story that will have you on the edge of your seat throughout. It’s classic chicklit and and I love it.
This short story can easily be read in one sitting. It’s perfect for a chilled out weekend afternoon.
