    One thought on “Pastures New”

    1. It's official: the light fiction genre is not for me. Oh, parts of it are cute. The dialogue is endearing. And most of the characters are likable, most of the time. Sometimes I even crack a smile at their antics. But mostly, I just shake my head and wonder why it is that people in Light Fiction Universe don't act the way that people in the regular universe do, especially regarding long-term consequences of actions. I was going to list a whole slew of examples, but what's the point? These are plo [...]

    4. Predictable and very mellow but I knew this was going to be a lighter book (actually picked it up for that reason as I have had trouble easing back into reading regularly lately). Quick and lovely read.

    5. Avevo adocchiato questo libro dalle segnalazioni di un blog che seguo e all'ultima visita in libreria mi ero decisa ad acquistarlo.Sono una appassionata del genere, specialmente di quello dal profumo inglese dove i protagnisti vanno sempre a riabilitarsi psicologicamente in campagna, colivando orticelli e fraternizzando con la popolazione autoctona.Questo libro è proprio parte d questa famiglia di romanzi, l'eroina intende infatti cambiare vita e si trasferisce nel Suffolk col figlio per supera [...]

    6. Pastures New is yet another entertaining book Julia Williams which has a gardening theme.

    8. I enjoyed every page of this lovely story. Julia Williams has created a cast of interesting, warm and realistic characters who are all very human. It's a comforting read - covering issues that most of us wil deal with in our lives sometime. The author deals with all of the issues in a humourous and realistic way - there are characters I detested and some I really loved - just like real life, and there were times I would have like to knock a few heads together - but this all added to the novel.

    9. I enjoyed listening to this book, though it was a little frustrating in a couple of areas with both Saffron and Amy but overall a good story.Amy Nicholson has been widdowed for 2 years has recently come to live at Nevermorewell with her 5 year old son Josh. Here she meets a doctor Ben Martin, her widdowed neighbour Harry and Saffron, who she met when taking her son to school and her husband Pete. The story works around these 5 main characters with a few other thrown in, they get to know each as [...]

    10. I was given this book by my mum and not having heard of the author before was intrigued to start it as soon as possible. I really enjoyed the story and the characters. My favourite character was Harry, he just put a smile on my face right from the word go. I like the fact it isn't just based around Amy's life, you also get other people's stories too. I found I didn't have to concentrate too much which is good when you have a busy life. I will be looking out for more of Julia Williams books now.

    11. Se dovessi dare un voto al libro in base a quante ore mi ha tenuta sveglia per farsi leggere dovrei affibbiargli il massimo. C'è da dire che però la storia è un po' banalotta e alla lunga stanca, appassionano di più le storie a latere. In ogni caso mi ha ricordato Katie Fforde e questo gli fa prendere la più che sufficienza.

    12. Amy, a young widow, and her young son Josh move from London to the countryside. The book charts their progress, the friends the make, and their relationships. Reasonably well-written and interesting, but the characters don't come alive at all. Too much authorial explanation for my tastes. But a pleasant enough light read.

    13. This was a lovely read, really likeable and relatable characters BUT it was just sooooo frustrating. The story was just strung out way too long and it literally did not come together until the last page. It was a predictable story, you knew what was going to happen from the very beginning.A nice easy read if you're looking for some lovely chick lit.

    14. really good light read characterisation is brilliant u really feel u r living in the village with themso much so, u want to shake them or scream at them - no/yes don't u realise what this/hee really means? try it and see - u will not regret it! if u do, do not blame me . !! bev

    15. Started out very well but I felt that this book could have done with being a bit shorter, the last few chapters felt like they had been padded out. By the end I was getting a bit fed up of the lead characters falling out/getting back together/misunderstandings etc.

    16. Not a bad story, but I found Amy too annoying & wishy-washy, & when you don't like the heroine it's difficult to like the book. I got very tired of the name, Nevermorewell, & the little jokes around it, too.Rated 5/10 at bookcrossing/journal/1.

    17. A nicely written book with a good rolling plot full of highs, lows and humour, and warm, rounded and believable characters. I don't normally 'go' for romance novels but I enjoyed this one immensely.

    18. It was an story that I thought went a little long. I liked most of the characters and the story progressed well if not a little slowly.

    19. I really enjoyed this book, and discovered that it was the 2nd time I'd read it after a few pages.The characters were very likeable and each had a story to tell, that you really wanted to hear.

    20. An easy read. Amy and Ben as the main characters are very likeable and the rest of the characters fit in to the story line very well.

    21. Great story and characters but got frustrated a bit with their will they wont they ? I was like Come on ! Overall very entertaining though
