You And Me Against The World
A Match Made In Devon by Cathy Bramley is a really delightful contemporary romance that will have the reader enchanted from the start.
Once again Cathy Bramley has produced a really fun light hearted read but with some serious under lying themes. There were times when I literally laughed out loud. And much of the time I read with a smile on my face. “I looked like the love child of Donald Trump and a satsuma.”
The novel highlights the importance of family and good friends. Both stick together and help to overcome when circumstances threaten to overwhelm.
There is the awful topic of infant mortality. The grief that follows, separates rather than unites as parents try to come to terms with their loss. (This is not a spoiler as it has happened before the book starts.)
Existing Side By Side
Hetty’s Farmhouse Bakery by Cathy Bramley is a really delightful contemporary novel.
Set on a farm in Cumbria, the reader is treated to rolling hills and lots of sheep. There is a warm community atmosphere where everyone pulls together.
Old fashioned sheep farming combines with a new venture – baking. The novel shows that traditions and innovations can exist side by side. Diversification is the name of the game.
Kindness makes the world go round. “Kindness is a reflection of a person’s true beauty.” There are some very beautiful people in the novel. Kindness looks at mistakes and forgives. Kindness looks to others rather than self. Kindness binds people together.
