The Green Hills of Home

When Gwen Jones, a young Welsh writer, lands a three-book contract with a well-known publishing house, she’s ecstatic that her dreams are finally coming true. The only problem is they would like her to travel to London to work with John Thatcher, the editor they assigned to help her with her books. Usually that wouldn’t be a problem, but right now she must stay close to home because of her infirmed mother. Oddly enough, due to her situation, John decides to head to Gwen in Wales so they can work together and at the same time, allow her to be close to her mother so she can continue supplying her medical care.

I really enjoyed this debut novel and while I was reading it, I could feel all the emotions Gwen was feeling during the writing process with John. Not to mention the chemistry stirring between these two. I enjoyed watching their relationship develop and I loved the surprises that popped up from time to time. I found the storyline and characters believable and very entertaining as well. I also loved the descriptions of Wales, so much so that I felt I was there with the characters being a part of everything they were seeing and doing. What a fantastic debut by this author!
