About The Book

Maddie is restless in London. She has friends, a job and a sort-of boyfriend, but something in her life is missing. Then she visits the ancient village of Walditch, deep in the Dorset countryside. Something stirs in her, and on a whim she buys a centuries-old cottage and moves there three months later. Her friends think she’s crazy, but for Maddie it feels like coming home.
Late at night in the cottage, Maddie hears strange noises and sees mist gathering indoors and out. When she starts investigating the cottage’s history, she becomes drawn into the tragic story of a family who lived here 400 years ago. Meanwhile, Maddie starts to fall in love with a local carpenter – but he has a relationship already…
Can Maddie solve the riddle of the past? What is her connection with the family that lived there so many years ago? And can she and her true love ever be together?

My Thoughts

This is a beautiful and bittersweet story that will be the delight for any romantic heart.
This is the love story of Maddie and Nick, but at the same time the story of Mary and Nat. Maybe you don’t believe in ghosts, but you have to admit that the past always leaves an imprint on the present, you only have to search for it to believe!
When Maddie connects with a beautiful house at the countryside, she doesn’t know how connected is she with their past owners and how much it will change her life forever. Nick seems to try to help Maddie as much as he can with the house, and the sparks between them are almost touchable but he is taken… Is there any hope between them or Maddie’s heart will be broke forever?
I really enjoyed this story, how the past connects so perfectly with the present making this story really well written and engaging, a delight!
I’ll have to admit that I would had liked that the story was longer, I was so invested in the story that I didn’t want to end! I just hope that we will have a book with Maddie’s sister story, this way we will know more about the characters of the book, I already miss them! I will have always this beautiful story near my heart and remember that having a little faith is the best way to fulfil my dreams!
