Sunshine Over Wildflower Cottage by Milly Johnson. Recommended by Dawn (Library Supervisor and Reader Development Team).
‘I am a lover of all Milly Johnson’s books (I am very excited about the upcoming visit from her at Tottington Library at the end of september), but I found this book a slightly gritttier read than others, it had more twists and turns and moments of tension. Milly handles difficult subjects with a gentle hand and promotes the value of friendship and ‘girl power’ as being key to getting through life, something I wholeheartedly endorse. I particularly loved the descriptive writing and the relationship between Viv (the main character) and Ursula (an owl). I would reccomend this, and all Milly Johnson books.’ Dawn.
Viv doesn’t like animals. And the feeling is mutual: animals seem to dislike her too. So when she applies for a job at Wildflower Cottage, a tumbledown animal sanctuary which caters for a variety of unloved animals, she’s not sure she will fit in. But then she catches sight of Heath, the owner, and things start looking up. Geraldine runs the sanctuary. She’s a woman who has a secret in her past and who was drawn to the sanctuary just as Viv was. But her sanctuary is about to come under threat. Can she keep her past a secret and her future safe? Back home, Viv’s mother Stel thinks she might have found a man who will treat her right for once. Ian is kind, considerate, and clearly head over heels for her. That’s what she has wanted all along, isn’t it?
