Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of Nowhere Else, Wattle Creek and Paycheque brings us the much-anticipated sequel to Saving Grace.

Emily Oliphant has made some drastic changes in her life. She's ditched her abusive husband and embarked on her own adventure, renovating a dilapidated property and starting up her own business. Against all odds, she's found a sense of place and purpose, but is still too scarred by her past to form any romantic attachments, regardless of who's vying for her attention.

Now she's received an offer from the elderly owners of her beloved rented home to buy the property, land and all. Hopeful and tentative, Emily feels she is taking a step in the right direction, although is unsure how she will raise the money. Except Emily holds a button jar - a gift from her recently deceased Granny Mayfair - which, unbeknownst to her, could contain the solution to all her problems....

But just when Emily thought things were beginning to go her way, everything takes a turn. Soon, she's involved in a romance she thought she had no time for and dealing with the shock of two unexpected deaths, forcing her to make some difficult decisions. With her finances, her property, her friendships and her budding relationship now hanging in limbo, Emily is once again drawing on her inner strength to overcome a new set of challenges.

Struggled to finish.

Unfortunately I got to the stage where i wanted t shake Emilie! Plus I really don't think the author really understands rural towns and rural living. It was implied that all rural people were ignorant, gossips and very judgemental. I have the third book to listen to and I hope it is an improvement on this one.

does it get any better

I haven't read the 3rd book and I'm still wondering if Emily is right in the head. I keep waiting for her to fall right off the perch.

Enjoyable

I am enjoying this series of stories, it’s easy listening whilst working from home. The storyline is good although Emily can be very frustrating .. she does tend to whinge and whine a lot and revel in self pity, but that aside I am looking forward to the last book to see where her life takes her. Jennifer does a wonderful job narrating.

Main character killed the story.

Well articulated and easy listening. Emily is such a weak, sulky person that it is difficult to like her at all. She is such a glass half empty person with a whining, resentful tone and gives very little of herself to others. As much as the narrator did an excellent job, I struggled to keep listening to the inane detail and unrealistic events .

A bit too drawn out.

Loved the story, however I felt that the main character was continually self-absorbed over too many incidents.

Pleasant Read

I enjoyed the book over all as I did the last one in this series. I love the county setting and the idea of giving life to an old house. Unfortunately I found the main character Emily a bit weak, whiny and sometimes frustrating.
