Wonderfully done, the descriptions of the gardens and the English countryside made me feel as if I were there.
Lovely, endearing characters. The stories of each one unfold and blend together seamlessly.
I listened to the audio version of this story and narrator, Susan Duerden, did a fantastic job.
I would definitely read more by this author.
During the summer the Old Manor was in need of repair. This is a great plot and I enjoyed the writing. Ms Victoria led us through the old Manor that needed repairs. Then she stepped outside to show us the beautiful gardens all around the house and the hugh yard. This is a simple romance, so relaxing as you read it's like watching a movie, just wonderful.
One daughter came up with a plan to repair the old Manor and Vanessa suggested the work for the garden. This novel was a very good sweet novel with humor, romance, love and some disagreements. I enjoyed the wonderful gardens with the sweet romance. Ms Victoria did a good job. Just sit back and enjoy.

Marcus and Laurence Sturridge buy the north wing and the two families gradually settle down to share the property and the garden. When Vanessa makes major decision about getting help to return the garden to its former glory things at Orley Court start to change for all the residents. This is a well written relatively light story with some interesting characters and I found the gardening background interesting even though I don't enjoy gardening in the flesh! I much prefer reading about it.
I'm sure Victoria Connelly's many fans will love this book though I found it a little too sentimental for my taste. I do like the cover art - it really does sum up the whole book for me.
This is a lovely gentle love story, well written and fairly predictable. But we all need love and hugs sometimes.
