A MIDWINTER PROMISE, by Lulu Taylor, Panmacmillan

One family across two generations.
A marriage marred by trauma and infidelity.
Lives marked by death, divorce and a shattered family.
A dark secret at the heart of a tragedy.

Set around the beautiful wildness of Tawray, a house near the Cornish coast, A Midwinter Promise by bestselling author Lulu Taylor, is a dramatic story of loss, grief and the legacy of secrets. It is also a tale of reconciliation and renewal.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Well, I know others aren’t going to like this review, but I’m here to give my honest review. So here goes…

Drama, dysfunctional, overwhelming sub-plots, stereotypical characters, crashing ending and just not something I found promising at all.

I expected more from Lulu Taylor.
