Summary

The delicious new novel from Sunday Times best-selling author Heidi Swain:

Fliss Brown has grown up living with her mother on the Rossi family’s Italian fruit farm. But when her mother dies, Fliss finds out she has a family of her own, and heads back to England with Nonna Rossi’s recipe for cherry and almond tart and a piece of advice: connect with your family before it is too late....

Fliss discovers that her estranged grandfather owns a fruit farm himself, on the outskirts of Wynbridge, and she arrives to find a farm that has fallen into disrepair. Using her knowledge gleaned from working on the Rossi farm and her desire to find out more about her past, Fliss rolls her sleeves up and gets stuck in. But what will she discover, and can she resurrect the farm’s glory days and find a taste of home?

Very enjoyable

Just love Heidi Swain's writing and Karen Cass's narration. All the characters are accessible and for the most part, likeable. I usually listen to my audibles as I fall asleep and this one is very gentle but intriguing enough to make me keep listening beyond when perhaps I should have fallen asleep!
Please keep 'em coming Heidi.....

a perfect summer read

I really love how all Heidi's books interact with each other, but equally can be read on their own and in any order. I always love Karen Cass as a reader, she has a beautiful voice which is very easy to listen to.

Missing the earlier Wynbridge experiences

I’ve been listening to all other stories set in Wynbridge and really enjoted them.
This time the main character over explained everything and the flow was getting lost. The people did not feel ” real” as the ones in the other stories.
This story mod was unfortunately a big disappointment for me
