I am a few days late to the party, apologies, this is a well written and thought provoking book. We bounce between the 1960s, 90s, 00s, 2004 etc and the present day.
We meet a young Essie and her soon to be husband Billie. Essie’s memory of her twin Dottie who passed away when she was 10 haunts her.
I giggled at the Salon Blonde reference.
Essie has a lot of lazy grandkids, but her strained relationship with the apple of her Eye Morgan Jo is what weighs her down. Morgan had moved to Arizona and ends up returning home when she is called home by her mother.
Home to Brambleberry Creek: An absolutely gorgeous page-turner, filled with family secrets
Everyone has one moment that will change their life forever…
A completely heart-warming, emotional page-turner about finding your place in the world, the importance of family and the joy of discovering love when you least expect it. Perfect for fans of RaeAnne Thayne, Elin Hilderbrand and Susan Mallery.
Morgan Jo Coyle has been trying to escape her past for the last five years. She’s built a successful career for herself in the city but she still longs for the open fields and beautiful skies of Brambleberry Creek, the small town in Kentucky where she grew up. So when she receives a heart-breaking call from her mother, telling her that her Memaw Essie is on her deathbed, Morgan drops everything to go home and face her family—before it’s too late.
Stepping through the door of her memaw’s charming old farmhouse, Morgan is reminded of all the happy times she spent baking with Essie. And it’s not long before her childhood sweetheart, Emmett Dawson, with his sparkling blue eyes and teasing smile, comes to find her. It almost starts to feel like old times as Morgan and Emmett spend long summer evenings together eating berries by the water. But a lot has happened since they last saw each other. Can their relationship really be reignited after all this time?
The sprawling Kentucky countryside also brings memories of the fateful accident that Essie was responsible for: the day that changed Morgan’s world forever and drove her away from her family, Emmett and everything she loved…
With Essie in the hospital, Morgan tries to forgive her. It’s only when she discovers an ink-stained letter written in her memaw’s distinctive hand that she finally starts to understand the truth behind the moment that tore the two women apart.
Will the unraveling of a shocking family secret help Morgan to reunite her family and find a future with Emmett in Brambleberry Creek? Or will she leave the rolling hills of Kentucky for good?
