Guest Review: The Forever House by Veronica Henry

Would you know your forever house if you found it?
Hunter's Moon is the ultimate 'forever' house. Nestled by a river in the Peasebrook valley, it has been the Willoughbys' home for over fifty years, and now estate agent Belinda Baxter is determined to find the perfect family to live there. But the sale of the house unlocks decades of family secrets - and brings Belinda face to face with her own troubled past.

Review: I was delighted to see a new book on the way from one of my favourite authors. As soon as I possibly could, I opened it up and was lost in its pages. It is definitely one of those stories that has you hooked very quickly and wishing that you could just keep reading to the end. 

The narrative concerns some very strong female characters, as well as the most adorable sounding house. The story contains parts  from the past and the present, all well and cleverly presented to keep the reader aware of what has gone before and how it relates to the here and now. This kind of format can sometimes be confusing, but Veronica has skilfully made it very clear whether it is today or yesterday. 

The main female characters are Margot, a famous writer of women's fiction in her time, Sally, a lady whose story spans past and present, and Belinda, a present day estate agent. Their stories are all brought together by the stunning Hunter's Moon, a large country house on the outskirts of Peasebrook, a Cotswolds town that will be familiar to readers of Veronica's last book. Of course there is a host of other supporting players, including the dashing Alexander, equally handsome Leo and Alexander's sister Annie. 

I'm sure that this book will appeal to a wide range of readers. There is plenty to interest everyone. Veronica Henry undoubtedly has a great talent for bringing people and places to life, which is evident once more in this novel.
