Cassie Beresford has recently landed her dream job as deputy head teacher at her local, idyllic village primary school, Little Acorns. So, the last thing she needs is her husband of twenty years being ‘outed’ at a village charity auction – he has been having an affair with one of her closest friends.
As if it weren’t enough to cope with, Cassie suddenly finds herself catapulted into the head teacher position, and at the front of a fight to ward off developers determined to concrete over the beautiful landscape.
But through it all, the irresistible joy of her pupils, the reality of keeping her teenage children on the straight and narrow, her irrepressible family and friends, and the possibility of new love, mean what could have been the worst year ever, actually might be the best yet…
GUEST REVIEW FROM CHRIS!
Today I am handing my blog over to my mum, you can check out her review below:
“This is an excellent story!
It was very well written story about village life with its ups and downs.
I really got engrossed with the characters and don’t usually so that goes to show how well the author has developed them with this story.
It is a must read, heart-warming story – no hesitation in giving this one 5 stars!!!”
