Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for The Garden on Holly Street by Megan Attley.
What I Say:
I adored all of the characters, especially Ernie! I related to Abby loads and cried for her right at the beginning of the book. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a sob story. But her history resonated with me and I felt for her. Everyone plays an excellent part in telling this story. I also loved how easily the dialogue flowed. It read like a conversation should, it was effortless.
The Garden on Holly Street made me think about how I spend my time, how I interact with my neighbours and the second chance I was lucky to get in my own life. Life after a break-up can be really hard. Abby had great friends in Lisa and Fiona and they helped push her out of her comfort zone in order to start living life for herself. They were fab and I loved their dynamic! Abby is so strong and resilient, she is the kind of woman I'd like to be friends with.
The Garden on Holly Street is a beautiful, uplifting and heart warming story, perfect for reading in your own little garden paradise. 9.5/10
