My Review: I found this slightly tricky to read due to my father passing away at the beginning of the year. I can fully understand some of Marion Miller’s emotions. There are look backs and much needed changes. I kept humming Celine Dions song to myself and listening to it. Beth has written an emotive and inspiring book that in some parts are identifyable. I’d definitly recommend reading it when grief isnt quite so fresh.
Because You Loved Me
Marion Miller needs a fresh start.
Her childhood in Northern Ireland wasn’t easy, with a father who passed away when she was young and a mother who got lost in grief. Now grown-up and with family relations as tense as ever, Marion heads to England, to find out the truth about her father’s mysterious past – and hopefully an extended family who will love her as much as he did.
Scarlett Obermann runs a holiday park in Sherwood Forest with her daughter Grace, but what’s she’s best at is making people feel like they belong. With her merry band of waifs and strays, Scarlett welcomes Marion with open arms, and it isn’t long before Marion finally understands what it means to find a home.
As she tries to uncover her father’s story, Marion slowly blossoms, even daring to indulge in her crush on Reuben, the son of the Lord of the Manor, but she hasn’t quite out-run her past. And as Scarlett faces her own tragedy, it’s Marion’s turn to take care of everyone.
Because you can’t choose your family, but you can make your friends the family you choose.
This novel was first published as Making Marion.
