We Belong Together
Eleanor Sharpley has been living a lie…
Needing to escape her London life quickly, Eleanor throws her things into the back of her car, and heads to her erstwhile best friend Charlie’s family farm.
But Charlie isn’t there. Instead she finds Charlie’s grieving brother Daniel, her eight-month old daughter Hope (a daughter Eleanor had known nothing about), and a crumbling and unloved Damson Farm.
Damson Farm lies at the edge of the village of Ferrington, with the river Maddon flowing at its heart. But Ferrington is a village divided by more than just a river – it is split in two by an age-old feud – between the Old Side and the New Side. Eleanor has run from her problems, straight into a family and a world that has problems of its own.
But Damson Farm has magic too, and as winter gives way to spring, the old farm starts to come to life under Eleanor’s love and care. The orchard starts to blossom with daffodils and bluebells, and the sound of bees busy in their hives fills the warming air. Can Eleanor bring Daniel and the feuding village of Ferrington back to life too, or will her secrets catch up with her first?

BOOK REVIEW BY NIKI PRESTON
STAR RATING 5***** STARS
I adored this book from the first moment. A very different take on a romance story. Eleanor Sharpley, alias Nora Sharp is a big shot food critic with a sting in her tail. After a traumatic break up Eleanor decides she just has to get out of London and get some perspective on where she wants her life to go after Nora.
After throwing her belongings in her she sets off and literally crashes into a grieving man’s life and turns everything upside down.
This is a truly marvellous read filled with great friendships, strong blossoming love alongside Eleanor’s desire to try and carry out her friends Charlies dream for, what has become a very run down Damson farm. You get a definite sense that even though Eleanor portrays a strong character outwardly to those around her, inside she is in turmoil. She doesn’t really know where to turn so keeps her biggest secret for fear of scaring Daniel away. Daniel comes across as the strong silent type who only wants to bring up his daughter in peace. He slowly begins to thaw not only to Eleanor’s ideas but also to her. As their friendship unfurls you, as the reader get carried along with them and you find yourself telling them what to do in your head and desperately hoping they will listen.
A beautifully written book that draws you right in to these characters lives. A great romance evolves with a fair few bumps in the road. It is not always obvious how this couple will end up. I am not going to spoil that, you will just have to read this fab book for yourself.
