    One thought on “The House at Ladywell”

    1. A real feel good romantic story about a house and its history Nicola Slade writes characters you instantly warm to and her love of old houses is evident I liked the use of elements of local history to provide background to the story of the house, lending it a real sense of place and solidity it feels as though one could go and look for an actual house the influence of Elizabeth Goudge can be felt strongly in Slade s writing about both house and nature.I feel that this is a novel which grew quite [...]

    2. This was a thoroughly enjoyable book that I wished I could read in one sitting since I was engrossed As it happened I read it over one day and one night The tale of the house at Ladywell slowly unfolds with historical glimpses of the surroundings and the inhabitants over the centuries from the earliest Roman times to the present day Those snatches of previous residents are skilfully interwoven for the reader as the new owner delves back to uncover details about the previous occupants of the hous [...]

    3. I love stories where a house or place is one of the main characters I also have a great fondness for hares, which are closely associated with the setting The House at Ladywell is an enjoyable and fluently written tale of a young woman who unexpectedly inherits an old house with plenty of history behind it The author cleverly weaves a series of stories about previous occupants of the place from Roman times onwards with the present day story Freya, the main character, unravels a mystery about her [...]

    4. Absorbing readI bought this book this morning and sat and read it right through I literally couldn t put it down Although the romance element was predictable, the rest of the story had enough twists and turns to keep a reader guessing until the end It was interesting to see the historical aspects how a house manages to stay in the same family for so long and how some traditions are so ancient that even in the remote past they are old and nobody can trace their origin I have read Nicola Slade s H [...]

    5. What a delightful and fulfilling read On the surface this may seem like a light read, but it has so many layers that go deep Freya Gibson inherits an old house to which she immediately feels a connection As she meets fellow villagers, it is obvious there is much to this house than she first thought Ms Slade cleverly intersperses the history of the building, going back to Roman times and gradually working towards the recent past These historical scenes in no way affect the flow of the story, ind [...]

    6. The minute I see a book with a house at its core almost as one of the main characters, I just jump at the chance to read it The house lives and breathes life into the story and the characters and its almost as though it senses when Freya needs help and guidance This book did not disappoint and exceeded my expectations When author P.A Freya Gibson inherits a house from a relative she has never heard of, she just knows this is the chance to start afresh Despite initial reservations, Freya is drawn [...]

    7. Books where a house is a major part of the plot seem to have an invisible rope attaching them to me They pull me in immediately and I m rarely disappointed So you can imagine that The House at Ladywell was a great draw for me And I m pleased to say that it didn t disappoint, in fact I loved it.Freya Gibson is a woman who has been through a lot and had a really difficult time of it She then finds herself working for bestselling author, Patrick Underwood All is going well and then one day she hear [...]

    8. Nice multi layered book On one level, this is a gentle contemporary love story with enough of a mystery to keep the interest piqued, but Nicola Slade deftly intersperses the narrative with the timeline of the house, telling us about the Ladywell inhabitants and fortunes all the way back to the Roman era.

    9. This book was a real page turner for me I loved the way the past and present was interlinked It held my interest from page one and I really couldn t put it down It had everything I enjoyed about a good book Can t wait to read the next book by this brilliant author.
