Product description

Product Description

Dulili is suffering a people drought. Over the years more people have moved away than have arrived to stay in this old New South Wales farming town, and now only a handful of young families and elderly residents are left. The locals put a plan into action to entice newcomers: offering the town’s empty houses to newcomers from anywhere in Australia.  Who could resist renting a beautiful homestead for a dollar a week?

There’s nothing left for Adele Devereux in Sydney: no job, no relationship, no hope, and no diagnosis for her shy, uncommunicative daughter Ali. So she packs her bags, takes her meagre savings, and moves her small family to the country. She never expects to meet Tom Wade, a man facing his own hopeless situation, but whose kindness reaches her daughter in an unexpected friendship. As the small town of Dulili attempts to regenerate itself, Adele finds herself drawn further in to the community – and into her attraction to Tom.
Tom is not back in Dulili to build a relationship. He’s there to heal wounds, help his grandmother, and make new plans. Plans that don’t come with his grandmother’s new tenant, part of the Dulili dollar scheme. But as Adele and Ali effortlessly work their way into his thoughts and his heart, he realises that there are two crucial elements that he left out of his long-term plans – the chance to find love and renewed hope for the future.

What an awesome idea for an Australian rural romance series. A fictional town called Dulili where it costs $1 to rent a house as part of a local plan to encourage more people into the town.
A Heart Stuck On Hope is the first of three stories set in Dulili, followed by Lisa Ireland (Honey Hill House) and Catherine Evans (The Healing Season). I have read all three of these authors before (Catherine Evans under a pseudonym), and they don't disappoint.
In A Heart Stuck On Hope, Adele moves to Dulili with her daughter, Ali. Ali has been through a traumatic time and isn't speaking as the book begins. I really like this aspect of the book and I think the trauma for Ali is dealt with exceptionally well.
Tom's relationship with Ali is amazing to watch as it grows, and to be honest as I read this book it began to feel like Tom's story every bit as much as Adele's.
There is a simplicity about Adele that I admired, a serenity and grace. She is not the 'feisty' heroine who you may find in so many books these days - and I liked that.
You can always trust Jennie Jones for humour, warmth, quirk - and for something out of the box. She established this style with the bestselling Swallows' Fall series, and it continues here.
This is lovely reading that I'd recommend.

A Heart Stuck on Hope is a delightful short romance that is simply gorgeous. Adorable, warm-hearted, moving and impossible to put down. The characters touched me and you can't help but fall in love with them all. Adele has a beautiful quiet nature. And Adele's 8 year old daughter, Ali, is a little sweetie but doesn't seem to want to talk. Then there's the charming Tom who has the capacity to understand Ali's trauma and they form a special bond. The secondary characters are just as loveable and equally important.

This incredible romance which is the first book in the A Dollar For a Dream series will touch your heart. Jennie Jones' stories never fail to please. Definitely a must-read and I look forward to reading the next two in the series written by two other authors - Lisa Ireland and Catherine Evans.

Dulili desperately needs more inhabitants. There aren't enough young people left in the village and it's time to find some new residents. The locals have a plan though. They're offering cheap houses to newcomers who need a fresh start. When Adele sees the ad she decides it's exactly what she needs. Her daughter Ali doesn't speak and she has no idea why. She thinks the peace and quiet of the village will be good for her. They don't have much, but work is part of the village plan, so she and her daughter will have a roof over their heads and food on the table.

Tom has a house in Dulili, but he doesn't intend to stay. His grandmother is one of the residents who are actively trying to bring some life back into the village. Tom has a lot of problems and is trying to find a way out. When he meets Adele and Ali he instantly likes them and Ali seems to trust him. He wants to help them, but he isn't in Dulili to stay. He's becoming very friendly with Adele, but that's the last thing he wants. Will he be able to walk away from love when the time comes to leave the village?

A Heart Stuck on Hope is such a wonderful and warm story. I love the idea behind A Dollar for a Dream, it's so kind and lovely. Adele needs a fresh start. She's a brave woman and she's easy to get along with. She worries about her daughter. Ali has stopped speaking and she wants to find out what's behind it. She does everything she can to make her daughter happy. She's a strong and independent woman. Tom is there to help her with some work and they become good friends. He doesn't let people in, but Adele is different. They have a special connection, only he isn't ready for something like that. It was interesting to read about their relationship and they're sympathetic main characters.
