Weddings in Burracombe by Lilian Harry

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The ninth in this charming Devon village series has four couples who wish to marry. None of the arrangements are straightforward. How the various relationships work out is best enjoyed if you have read at least one or two of the previous books so for fans you have Hilary still pining for David, Stephen who wants Maddy, Stella whose wedding to Felix is on hold due to her car accident and Patsy who is really very young. How things work out will take the tale into the next book.

If you like Lilian Harry you might also like to read books by Annie Groves, Beryl Matthews and Margaret Dickinson.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Weddings in Burracombe by Lilian Harry

Devon, 1954. The villagers of Burracombe pull together to help each other though the tough times but now it's summer, and a time to celebrate love and new life. Even so, there are still a few surprises to come...At Burracombe Barton, Hilary Napier is doing her best to keep the estate ticking along, all the while longing for a man she cannot have. She welcomes help from young Patsy Shillabeer - but Patsy is more headstrong than she first appears, and there's trouble brewing. And all is not well in the village school, where a strict new teacher appears to be making the lives of the little ones a misery. And almost everyone is missing their beloved teacher Stella, still in hospital after the accident that nearly killed her. As the first crocuses bring colour and the promise of change back to Burracombe, the villagers help each other through the hardships. For, while the course of true love never did run smooth, for anyone, in Burracombe, there are weddings to plan and it won't be long before everyone in this very special village comes together in a joyful celebration of love, life and the things that matter most.
