Jane Cockram has written a cracker of a story that keeps the reader turning the pages long into the night. She captures the essence of the modern day woman with clever attention to the deep roots that connect us with our past.
Miranda is an online influencer who travels to Barnsley House in England to escape her personal life after being exposed as a fraud and a liar. In true form, she lies her way into a nanny position at the legendary ‘House of Brides’, where her mother grew up with a sister, Elizabeth, and brother, Max. When Max’s wife goes missing, Miranda is left grappling with who she can trust, but secrets have a way of rising to the surface, and there are some terrific twists and turns.
The House of Brides is a feast of a read and will leave you craving more. A tale of intrigue, deception, and subterfuge, it hooks the reader and won’t let go. It is an uplifting journey from darkness and fear in the depths of a cold, English winter to understanding and hope in the summer sun.
I was given an ARC copy of the story by the author and the review is a genuine reflection of my opinion. The story is very engaging, beautifully written, and definitely worth reading!
