Huge thanks to @ed_pr for our ARC copy of A Winter Love Song in exchange for a free and honest review.
A Winter Love Song is a heartwarming and moving story of survival and love from bestselling author Rita Bradshaw.
Bonnie Lindsay is born into a travelling fair community in the north-east in 1918, and when her mother dies just months later, Bonnie’s beloved father becomes everything to her. Then at the tender age of ten years old, disaster strikes. Heartbroken, Bonnie’s left at the mercy of her embittered grandmother and her lecherous step-grandfather.
Five years later, the events of one terrible night cause Bonnie to flee to London where she starts to earn her living as a singer. She changes her name and cuts all links with the past.
Time passes. Bonnie falls in love, but just when she dares to hope for a rosy future, WW2 is declared. She does her bit for the war effort, singing for the troops and travelling to Burma to boost morale, but heartache and pain are just around the corner, and she begins to ask herself if she will ever find happiness again?
Bonnie Lindsay is a character that will stay with you long after you close the last page. Her life’s journey from a wee baby to a young woman is a path filled with tragedy and heartache.
At the novels, very core is the message of never giving up and no matter what life throws at you we have to try, try again. With poignant heartfelt moments scattered throughout the story, Rita Bradshaw brings Bonnie to life on the pages.
The cover is stunning and very appropriate for this time of year. Fans of Maureen Lee and Beryl Kingston will adore A Winter Love Song.
I thoroughly recommend this corker of a read from Ria Bradshaw.
