Fox Halt Farm – Celia Moore

Opening on a cliff edge, Billy finds herself alone and betrayed. She believes everyone and everything she loves is threatened. Richard’s world is aglow with wealth, love and unswerving family loyalty but then his perfect life crosses Billy’s. He could save Billy, her beloved dairy cows and Fox Halt Farm but this young woman isn’t in the mood to be rescued.

Nothing will stay the same. Should they trust each other? Will their secrets tear their lives apart?



My review

My first book by this author and I have a great deal of respect for her. She tells us afterwards that a lot of personal stuff has been used for this story. That must have been very hard on the one hand because she had to relive it all again, but on the other hand it might have been therapeutic as well. I do hope it has helped her through and I wanted to thank her for sharing it with us.

This story shows us that background or money don’t really matter if people want to connect or fall in love. The question remains though : wil money interfere in the end?

It’s sometimes hard to like a book when it’s filled with characters you don’t like too much. On the other hand it’s postive as well when people you created on paper can evoke emotions with your readers. So every cloud has a silver lining, doesn’t it?

My favourite people were Billy’s mum and Saffi. They both were full of life.

In my opinon the beginning of the book was a bit too chaotic and to descriptive, but it improved a lot afterwards. Billy was getting on my nerves and in the whole my least favourite person. It’s true she had a lot coming her way, maybe a bit too much for one person in one lifetime but some things she could have avoided.

Overall, an emotional saga but a bit too sad and despressing for me. 3 stars.

Thank you, Celia Moore and Rachel’s Random Resources.
