Review

I have read the two previous books more than 2 years ago and although I remembered most of the things that happened it was a really clever idea to give a small resume to freshen things up. If you have not read the books yet and planning to (of course you are 😉 ), please skip those few pages.

I have to admit that I was not very keen on book one, but it all changed when I started the next part. I was sold!!! It was very good and there was a lot going on. Some drama, some suspense, the whole shebang. 

A few weeks ago the author asked me if I would be interested in reading the last part of her trilogy and I did not hesitate one single moment. 

I was happy to ‘see’ the main characters again and I was disappointed too. Disappointed that this is the finale episode, because I utterly, totally, absolutely adored this book. I cannot believe this is the end of their story. I would not mind reading another book about their lives. But it is what it is and I am so glad they invited me in to their homes and  let me  cheer them on during their ups and support them during their downs. 

A story about love, family and every day live. 5 stars

Thank you, Celia Moore

About the author 

1967, when I was born, my parents lived on a small farm near Moretonhampstead in Devon UK and I have a treasured photo of Dad with his plough horses, Blossom and Pleasant. He could work an acre a day, and B and P knew to stop if the plough was about to hit one of the many rocks sticking out of the ground.

Later, we moved to a farm, 30 miles away, near Whiddon Down and kept a small dairy herd. The farm never made money and my parents eventually sold up. Dad then worked in a local cheese factory, a massive change in his fifties but he said he loved the regular wage, lack of worry and set hours. I think he loved the camaraderie of his new work mates most of all – it’s lonely on a farm sometimes.

I  studied for my degree in London and had a career with Lloyds Bank in London, Bristol and Taunton working as a Chartered Surveyor but in 2000, I followed a dream to North Wales, training to be an outdoor instructor, teaching rock-climbing, canoeing, mountaineering, and even skiing. I climbed everything I could in the beautiful national park.

Next, I moved to Somerset to teach in an outdoor education centre. I ran additional programmes for children excluded from school  and  children in care, instructing many different activities including archery, rifle shooting and mountain biking– and ended up managing one of the centres!I loved watching the non-academic children shine and the activities allowed teachers to see some pupils in a new light too. 

When, in 2008, I met my husband, it wasn’t fair to expect him to put up with my all-consuming job. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me – and I gave up teaching and came to live with him back in Devon – Home at last! By the way, I had actually been in primary school with Paul but I hadn’t seen him for 25 years when we met up again!

Today, I work as a gardener, eat cake, drink tea and chat. Many of my customers have lost their other halves to cancer and  I feel what I do now is wholly appreciated. I run too so I can eat more cake. I have completed the London Marathon 4 times but won’t do it again until I’m 60 when I hope I’ve forgotten how hard it was last time!

In winter 2016, I started blacksmithing to earn some money when there wasn’t much gardening to do. I created organically inspired items for gardens (sundials, bird feeders, arches etc.) but that all stopped when I woke up one morning with a story in my head that I just had to write  

And now I garden most of the year and write whenever I can. I love writing and by book 7 I hope to have discovered exactly what I’m supposed to be doing. 

My debut novel, Fox Halt Farm was published in 2017, Culmfield Cuckoo its sequel in 2019 and the final part of the Fox Halt Farm Trilogy will be available in May 2021. To find out more simply
