What happens when the relationship you have taken for granted is suddenly over?
Ava Connors is comfortable with her life just as it is, still living in the tiny terrace house where she was brought up by her grandmother, Maggie, seeing her long-term boyfriend, Finlay, and working in a florists.
But Maggie’s health is declining and Finlay is fed up waiting for Ava to make a commitment.
Ava has never really known her mother, Scarlett, and when she inherits an old and dilapidated house it ignites an interest in the mother who had abandoned her as a child.
Why did Scarlett leave her to be brought up by her grandmother?
Soon Ava begins to ask this question and in turn sets off a series of events that will change her life forever.
A Posy of Promises looks at the relationships we have and the questions we ask of those we love.
I was intrigued by the blurb for this book and I think that the cover is lovely and very in keeping with the book!
I really enjoyed the story and I thought that Ava was a brilliant character, very well developed and I instantly liked her. The book really did make me think about some of the relationships we have.
The book has a great ending, I was genuinely a bit saddened when it finished as I had really enjoyed the story and wanted to carry on being in their lives!
It is only a short read at 194 pages (according to Goodreads) but there is a lot of story contained in those pages and I have to say I loved it – five stars from me, very highly recommended!
