Run by the seemingly perfect Corrigan family, but every family has its secrets, and how the mills came to be the Corrigan’s is one of them…Miranda and her husband were never meant to own the mills, until one fateful day catapults them into a life they never thought they’d lead.
Ada has forever lived her life in her sister’s shadow. Wanting only to please her mother and take her place as the new leader of the mill, Ada might just have to take a look at what her heart really wants.

Callie has a flourishing international career as a top designer and a man who loves her dearly, she appears to have it all. When a secret is revealed and she’s unceremoniously turfed out of the design world, Callie might just get what’s she’s been yearning for. The chance to go home.

My Review:

When I hear that Faith Hogan has a new book out, I don’t even need to know what it’s about, I just know it will be fabulous. This one is no exception.

Set in a small Irish town, the home of Corrigan Mills, this is a real family saga.

Everything about this book is perfect, the setting is so well depicted, it’s like being there, the characters are, of course, marvellous, and the plot is rich and gently woven.

All the characters are likeable and relatable in their own way, even Simon, who is a bit immature and spoilt, but Miranda was my favourite. She’s a strong woman, and the heart of the family, and the mills. She’s getting a bit older now, but she’s very careful of what will happen to the mills. She loves her family, but she’s not a soft touch. The timeline goes right back to her childhood, and it’s fascinating to find out how she gets to where she is today.

This book took me a while to read, because I liked to savour it, and look forward to reading the next part. I was sorry to leave all the wonderful characters behind at the end.A really captivating and enjoyable read, highly recommended.
