Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The past crashes across all four generations of this now extended family which we first met in The Flowers of the Field and gathered more about in A Flower That’s Free, but fear not, for you will thoroughly enjoy this without knowledge of the past two books. We are given what backstory we need so all is tidied up. There are some great characters, the genteel middle-class elegance nicely portrayed and the whole ups and downs of the family a joy to be part of.

If you like Veronica Henry you might also like to read books by Fern Britton, Carole Matthews and Claudia Carroll.

Synopsis

The Beach Hut Next Door by Veronica Henry

For Elodie, returning to Everdene means re-awakening the memories of one summer fifty years ago. A summer when everything changed. Vince and his brother are struggling to come to terms with the death of their father - but they have very different ways of coping. And for Jenna, determined to put the past behind her, the opportunity to become 'the ice cream girl' once again might just turn her life around. But this summer is not all sunshine and surf - as secrets unfold, and some lives are changed for ever ...
