I absolutely loved this book! It tells the story of Tori Williamson who is 33. After her mother’s death and a relationship break up, she finds herself alone in London and lonely. She finally finds three friends online and begins writing an anonymous blog she calls The Beginner’s Guide to Loneliness.
As the blog becomes successful, she is invited to stay at The Farm, a retreat where the focus is on self-help, wellbeing and changing your mindset for the better. This is where her life begins to change…
Oh I so wanted to be at The Farm with Tori! It all comes to life so well under the skilful penmanship (penwomanship?) of debut author Laura Bambrey. She paints the characters so beautifully, I really felt I knew them and cared about them. There’s also a gorgeous dog that I fell in love with too!
There’s romance at the core of the book, but so much more!! I truly think every reader would appreciate the story and take something from it into their own lives, whatever age or gender they are.
The book is warm, uplifting, clever, emotional (Happy tears!), unforgettable.
I adored it and will be first in the queue for Laura’s next novel.
