Join Sunday Times bestseller Heidi Swain back in Nightingale Square for a sunshine and celebration filled summer…
Beth loves her job working in a care home, looking after its elderly residents, but she doesn’t love the cramped and dirty house-share she currently lives in. So, when she gets the opportunity to move to Nightingale Square, sharing a house with the lovely Eli, she jumps at the chance.
The community at Nightingale Square welcomes Beth with open arms, and when she needs help to organise a fundraiser for the care home they rally round. Then she discovers The Arches, a local creative arts centre, has closed and the venture to replace it needs their help too – but this opens old wounds and past secrets for Beth.
Music was always an important part of her life, but now she has closed the door on all that. Will her friends at the care home and the people of Nightingale Square help her find a way to learn to love it once more…?
I absolutely loved ‘The Summer Fair’. Having really enjoyed Heidi Swain’s last novel I couldn’t wait to read this one. This was such a feel-good read. The words just jumped off the pages and I really didn’t want to put this book down.
For me it was my first time in Nightingale Square but that didn’t spoil anything at all. It became clear from the very start that I was going to enjoy this novel.
The characters were all really likeable. I enjoyed following Beth on her journey and seeing how things worked out for her. I also took great pleasure in meeting all of her neighbours. There was such a good sense of community spirit and I think the things they organised were great.
I loved reading about the care home and all the antics some of the residents got up to. Beth was like a breath of fresh air and what she achieved there was amazing.
‘The Summer Fair’ is a magical and heart-warming read. If you’re looking for some escapism, then I highly recommend that you read this book.
I look forward to Heidi Swain’s next book.
