Sophie Potter’s job is helping people deal with the worst, because Sophie Potter knows what the worst feels like.
An expert at keeping moving, with her trusty motorhome and faithful dog Muffin, Sophie has built her life around keeping her loves and loyalties to a minimum.
Fabulous fifty-something Hattie Langford has kept her heart and past safely stored away too. But for reasons she’s only willing to share with a stranger, Hattie needs to tell the story her family has been hiding at Riverbend, their home in Sherwood Forest. There is a history of heartbreak and hurt that Hattie is now ready to face.
As Sophie helps Hattie uncover the secrets of generations of women who have lived at Riverbend, along with the stories of the men they have loved and lost, they start to see echoes in their own pasts. And as Riverbend shares its biggest secret of all, can Hattie and Sophie finally embrace the lives they’ve put on hold for so long, and risk giving their hearts to men who just might break the Riverbend curse?
Take Me Home by Beth Moran is a captivating novel that explores themes of love, loss, and the power of facing one’s past. The story revolves around Sophie Potter, whose job involves helping people navigate through their darkest moments because she herself knows the depths of despair.
Enter Hattie Langford, a fascinating woman in her fifties, who has also guarded her heart and buried her past.
As Sophie assists Hattie in unraveling the secrets of the women who have lived at Riverbend for generations and the men they have loved and lost, they begin to recognize striking parallels in their own pasts.
Take Me Home is a beautifully written and emotionally charged novel that keeps readers enthralled from beginning to end. Beth Moran skillfully weaves together the stories of Sophie and Hattie, creating a narrative that is both heartwarming and thought-provoking. The characters are well-developed and relatable, and their journeys of self-discovery are deeply moving.
I highly recommend Take Me Home to fans of contemporary fiction and heartfelt stories of self-discovery. Beth Moran has crafted a beautiful narrative that will leave readers reflecting on their own choices and the power of love to overcome obstacles. This book is a true gem and a testament to Moran’s talent as a storyteller.
