Reviewer: Val Pearson
Sarah has just unexpectedly inherited a house from her aunt Charlotte in a little village in Porth Greavy, England. Sarah had lost contact with her aunt over the years, and she believed her aunt had re-married abroad. Self-employed as a landscape artist and with no relationship to tie her down, Sarah can travel to England to take care of the legal matters pertaining to the house.
When she enters The Red Lion, a local pub, many of her aunt Charlotte’s old and dear friends greet her warmly. They also share the stunning news that Charlotte hadn’t dated, let alone re=married. Sarah chalksit up to a mistake on her part.. the house surpasses her expectations in more ways than one. Sarah receives visits from a mysterious stranger stranger, who goes by the name Michael Polrose, and she becomes more intrigued with each visit.
M. King has written a sweet story, and I enjoyed Sarah’s character. An adventurer at heart, she truly appreciated her surroundings. I enjoyed the mystery of Michael, Charlotte and Sarah.
King crafts vivid descriptions that made me feel I had joined Sarah in the house, pub and village. I loved the ending, which made one think about love and mortality. I think King did a wonderful job with this story and I only wish it would have been longer.
