A Home at Honeysuckle Farm-Christie Barlow- 4*   (Womens fiction/chick-lit)
Alice was taken to New York by her mother when she was eight. Her mother had
a falling out with her Father (Alice’s grandfather) and they left the next morning.
Grandie ran a dance school and dance has been in Alice’s blood for as long as she
can remember. Despite graduating from a school of dance and drama with flying
colours,her life in New York has been rather unsuccessful. When Grandie takes ill,
Alice decides to fly home to see him, perhaps for one last time. On arriving she
realises that she feels more at home than in the thirteen intervening years.
This is a heartwarming story and you can see where it perhaps will go but that
doesn’t spoil it in the least. A wonderfully uplifting read of relationships, family
and heartache. Of what should be done and what ought to be done. Those
sensitive situations we have all found ourselves in. A truly enjoyable read
with a smile.

A Home at Honeysuckle Farm
A family secret
One shocking argument and ten-year-old Alice Parker’s world was turned upside down. Her peaceful life at Honeysuckle Farm in the quiet rural village of Brook Bridge swapped for the bustling metropolis of New York City. Alice’s life was changed forever…
A second chance
Now, thirteen years later, Alice’s American dream is over. With her life in tatters, there is only one place Alice wants to be… home at Honeysuckle Farm. So, when Alice learns her beloved Grandie is ill, she knows this is her last chance to heal the family rift.
A forever home?
But secrets still swirl in Brook Bridge, and Alice is no closer to discovering the truth. And for some reason her new friendship with local heartthrob Sam Reid seems to be making the locals tense.
Sick of the lies Alice knows it’s time to lay the past to rest once and for all. But could the truth ruin her hopes of ever calling Honeysuckle Farm home again?
