The Barn of Buried Dreams – Chrissie Bradshaw

Erin and Heather Douglas are struggling. Their mother’s death has left a void in their family and everyday life has side-lined their dreams.

Erin has buried herself away in the family home and left her stage career. By hiding away, she is evading the pain of returning to London and the acting world where her ex-fiancé is enjoying success and a new relationship. When she meets charismatic Texan Jackson McGee, she wrestles with her feelings for him. Should she trust another man?

Heather is juggling babies, work, a rocky marriage and running on wine. An overheard conversation makes her ask, would Mark cheat on her?

Can the sisters help one another to face their fears, dust off and revive those dreams and find joy in life?



My review

This is such a wonderfull story. I was captivated from the start and I wanted to keep on reading and reading.

The author knows how to fill this book to the brim with emotions. It really pulled my heartstrings and a few times I wanted to yell : Noooooooo!

Last night I want to go to bed but at that moment I started a certain chapter. I could not put the book away until I knew what the outcome was. People who have read the story will know what I am talking about. I hope I made the others curious enough to dive into the book as well.

The story is about grieve, love lost and found (again), family, friends, about dealing with your problems and not letting other people walk all over you.

I loved Erin, I could have kicked her brother and sister sometimes and you simply had to let Jackson into your heart as well.

In my opinion this was a very fluently written work of art. If you are looking for a book you can loose yourself in, this one I would certainly recommand.

Thank you, Chrissie Bradshaw and RachelsRandomResources.


About the author

Chrissie, 2016 winner of the Romantic Novelist’s Elizabeth Goudge writing trophy, is a seasoned tea drinker and a tenacious trainer of her welsh terrier, Oscar. She has always loved match-making a book to a reader. Writing the kind of book she loves to read takes this a step further. When Chrissie is not writing or reading, you will find her walking Oscar on the beach, trying to avoid the gym and spending time with her family and friends.

Her new release, THE BARN OF BURIED DREAMS – when will they see daylight?, is a contemporary story about two sisters who are struggling after the death of their mother. It starts in Dunleith, the same Northumbrian setting as her debut novel ‘A Jarful of Moondreams’, and some characters cross both books. Readers can enjoy either book as a stand alone
