“A Winterfold Christmas” by Harriet Evans – Book Review

Way back in the summer of 2015 I read this author’s “A Place for Us” and thoroughly enjoyed it. When I realized that this novella featured the same family and characters I was keen to read it.

It was lovely traveling back to Somerset and the old house called Winterfold. Two years have passed since the end of the novel and the matriarch of the Winter family is still grieving her beloved husband David. Martha’s grandchildren are at Winterfold for Christmas, but the dinner is being prepared by Cat’s boyfriend Joe, who is a chef.  This is a Christmas novella which includes recipes and a carol or two. It lacks the ‘heft’ and ‘gravitas’ of the novel that preceded it, though it was enjoyable in its own right. A welcome bit of light reading between more serious works.

I purchased this novella in Kindle format from Amazon.ca

    A perfect type of book for a festive Christmas story. I read this one a couple of years ago and enjoyed it well enough considering I didn’t read A Place For Us. Nice review Lynne.
