The Landlord Of Hummingbird House by Jane Harvey is a positively delightful contemporary novel and the first book in the Hummingbird House series. I cannot wait for the subsequent books.
Hummingbird House is a place where hurting souls go to heal. It is a place of welcome, love and safety. A place where you feel at home and a place where help is just a call away.
The residents are an eclectic mix, all totally realistic and lovable. There is a beautiful bond between the tenants. Many are hiding from life after being hurt previously. All of whom have huge hearts.
As the novel unfolds, the reader glimpses the love and care, and unbreakable bonds formed over misfortune. Sometimes nothing needs to be said, a character just needs to be held, to know that they matter.
Grief and guilt can paralyse. What happened in the past lays no blame in the present but still a character exists with one eye on the past. Help is needed to bring about a fresh start.
The Landlord Of Hummingbird House is absolutely charming. I just loved it. It is like a hug in a book. I am on to book two now.
