Blog Tour: A Year at Meadowbrook Manor by Faith Bleasdale

One divided family, one life-changing year...

Harriet Singer hasn’t been home in ten years. When her beloved dad dies suddenly, she races to be there for her estranged siblings, despite the memories it brings back.

Then Harriet learns that all four Singer siblings must live together for one year, caring for their dad’s Animal Sanctuary, or forfeit their inheritance.

Living under the same roof could make or break the family, but it’s time Harriet stopped running and faced her past. Especially when her first love turns up...

A heart-warming story about love, hope and family, perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley and Heidi Swain.

5 Words: Family, grief, obligation, attraction, change. 

A Year At Meadowbrook Manor was a lovely way to start 2018. 

This book really has the feel-good factor, even if it does start off shrouded in grief. I loved the family dynamics, how even from beyond the grave the Singer siblings were almost taunted by their father. He seems almost as much of a wind up as my own dad.

Even people who weren't part of the family by blood were counted as part of the family. Gwen was so lovely, a real matriarch even if she was technically staff. The added complications of attraction and romance were a nice interjection to the family drama. I couldn't help but root for the couple.

If I could visit Meadowbrook Manor, I would in a heartbeat. It is not only a beautiful setting, but the sense of family, community, and love is prevalent in every description. It's a family home, and I loved the nostalgia that Harriet felt. The animal sanctuary I thought was a unique touch, you can't go wrong adding some floof to a story.

This book is a perfect pick me up, something to keep you warm on cold days and night.

  6. This sounds like the sort of stunt my family would pull, except a year with all my siblings would more closely resemble The Hunger Games and not. feel good read!!
