The 20th - yes 20th!! - novella in The Little Duck Pond series and I'm still totally smitten!! Rosie has created a set of characters and settings that just bring a smile to my face with each installment and I just want it to never end!!!
In this book, we follow the story of Martha who is experiencing the highest of the highs in her life! All is going well with her writing career and she's even been shortlisted for an award. She had support from her family and friends, she was doing what she loved and then disaster.... an accident causes a head injury which really turns her life upside down and leaves her a shadow of her former self.
She's becomes ultra cautious in an attempt to stave off the crippling migraines she's been left with, so that leaves her living her life by a strict routine which she settles into but does restrict her 'fun' and spontaneity. You can understand her reluctance and her friend Madison does all she can to try and get her friend out and about again.
What \I loved about Martha and her story is that it was so relatable. A life changing moment had clipped her wings and you could understand her struggle to jump straight back into her old life. She does build up the confidence to apply for a nearby job, and that might just be the start of happier times for her - you'll find yourself cheering her on just like I did!!
There are also cameos from various characters we've met in previous books and I really loved the little storyline with Primrose and her struggles with new motherhood. It really brought home that reality of people struggling behind closed doors but being too afraid to ask for some help.
This is another wonderful addition to the Little Duck Pond series and shows how being honest and open with people can open doors and help you move on and just having the support of people around you who care is so important, and I'm already eagerly awaiting the next novella in the series!!
