Budding, Blossoming & Blooming
Wedding Bells At Goodwill House by Fenella J Miller is the next book in the fabulous Goodwill House series. It can be read as a stand-alone but I recommend reading the previous books first to enable you to track character progression and development. I loved catching up with the characters. It is like greeting old friends.
We join Goodwill House in early 1941 with World War II in full swing. There are continual air raids as well as the winter weather to contend with.
Familiar faces are battling trauma from the past. They feel stuck in a moment in time and need love, care and patience to heal.
Once more Fenella J Miller writes with care, compassion and an eye for detail, painting the scenes with her words. She has a marvellous sense of humor, presenting the reader with several hilarious situations which had me snorting with laughter – possibly not a book to read in public!
Nothing is certain in times of war. Where love is found, it must be seized. We witness a character re-assessing her life, who decides that love wins over the opinion of others.
You never know who is watching and listening. There could be spies amongst us. Eyes and ears need to be kept open in order to discern who is for us and who is against us!
Characters bud, blossom and bloom as they grow and mature, being given more responsibility, as everyone does their bit for the war effort.
I absolutely adore the Goodwill House series and cannot wait for more, more, more, please Fenella J Miller.

Wedding Bells at Goodwill House
As the residents of Goodwill House feel the hard bite of winter, land girl Charlie Somiton is still glad of the warm friendships she has made there. Not just her fellow land girls, Daphne and Sal, but also dashing local G.P. Dr James Willoughby who looked after Charlie when she was injured at work.
Charlie likes Dr Willoughby, but she fears that there can never be more between them than just friendship. Because despite her upper-class background, Charlie carries with her a terrible secret that she can never share with James.
Dr Willoughby knows Charlie is dealing with something painful and he wishes she’d confide in him more. The war is getting ever closer and James knows all too well that life is short and happiness should be grabbed with both hands.
But is Charlie brave enough to risk her secret and her heart or will her past ruin her chances for a happy future.
