Finding Family At Seabreeze Farm – Jo Bartlett

Freya Halliwell is looking forward to marrying the man of her dreams and starting their new life together. After the death of both of her parents, Ollie, along with Freya’s aunt, are the only family she has, but all the family she needs.

Until Freya discovers a shocking secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her once happy family and especially the man she used to call dad. Devastated and feeling more alone than ever before, Freya needs time and space to come to terms with the news. But until
then the wedding is off!

Seabreeze Farm is the perfect place for Freya to recover. But could this beautiful farm perched high on the cliffs, also hold the answer to Freya’s past and reunite her with the family she never even knew she’d been wishing for?

I found myself rather excited to be reading a new book (the first of a new series?) by Jo Bartlett, having so enjoyed her Cornish Midwife series.

I immediately like both Freya and Ollie. I empathised with Freya, having suffered 2 bereavements (her parents) and I am a total sucker for someone with ‘kind eyes’, like Ollie. The couple were introduced in such a way, that I really felt immersed in their excitement at getting married, starting new jobs, and moving home, to live in London. Everything seemed just about perfect for the young pair. Life was good.

As for Karen and Ellie at Seabreeze farm – I truly admired their desire and drive to reinvent the farm – transforming it from a money pit into a money making concern. I must however confess to a bit of a ‘LOL’ moment, at the description of Ellie’s homemade Victoria Sandwich, the crunch being the ‘crunch factor’, courtesy of the added eggshells!

I totally warmed to the characters in this book – they just seemed so giving – for example the way that the Seebreeze Farm folk welcomed Freya into their family life. Freya for her part gave back, even helping with an inadvertent home birth (a sneaky bit of midwifery creeping in!)

I so wanted Freya to find her Father, and to perhaps revisit the episode with Ollie – was all exactly how it seemed?

You will of course need to read this great book for yourself, to find out what happens, but you will NOT be disappointed.
