No Place Like Home
The Cherry Tree Café by Heidi Swain is the most delightful contemporary heart-warming novel that will give you a great big welcome to the village of Wynbridge. Here, life is all about community – where there is a need, it is met. It is not a place for a private life! “My private life was going to be very public.”
The novel is about restoration, new beginnings and following your dreams. It is about finding out your niche and living life to the full. A fulfilled life does not necessarily mean a fast paced life in the city. A fulfilled life is one where you feel comfortable and loved.
Lies can destroy. “It simply isn’t possible to live a lie for long.” Lies wreck lives. Sooner or later, the truth must come out.
At the heart of the novel is baking and crafts. Both add warmth and show how we can use our gifts.
Good friends pull together. They drop everything in times of crises.
Heidi Swain has created a wonderful set of characters. As the novel is told in the first person, the reader ‘walks’ through the action. I cannot wait to make a return trip to Wynbridge where the welcome is always huge and warm.
