‘Set Me Free’ is Daniela Sacerdoti’s latest novel. It was published by Black and White Publishing in paperback on the 30th April 2015 and it is also available as an eBook. I am truly delighted to be a part of this blog tour. Below is my review and a competition.
Margherita’s marriage seems to be falling apart. After trying for a baby and not having any success, Margherita and Ash decide to adopt a child. A few years later Margherita eventually falls pregnant and is naturally over the moon. However, her husband doesn’t seem to be very pleased with her news and is of very little support to her.
Needing a break and some time away to think things through, Margherita decides to spend the summer in Glen Avich where she can help out at her mum’s new coffee shop. She also feels that she needs to spend time reconnecting with her adopted daughter and young son. Glen Avich can have a very strange effect on some people and when Margherita starts working for Torcuil Ramsay at the rather neglected Ramsay Hall things begin to change. Margherita finds that she is happy and Lara begins a new friendship with a local boy called Mal. But there is something about him that just doesn’t add up.
I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Set Me Free’ from start to finish. The prologue which was set in 1916 had me totally intrigued. Daniela Sacerdoti writes beautifully. I thought her descriptions of the characters and Glen Avich were wonderful.
Most of the characters were really likeable. Margherita was just so lovely and kind. Lara had had a very difficult time of things at the start of her life and Margherita gave her buckets full of love and lots of understanding. Maybe Ash simply found it hard to be a proper dad, I don’t know, but he sure didn’t deserve to have Margherita as his wife.
I absolutely loved the sound of Ramsay Hall and I felt as if I was in there with the characters. How I would love to have explored all the rooms and spend time in the library surround by all those lovely books.
Some of the cakes and biscuits which were baked for the coffee shop sounded scrumptious.
‘Set Me Free’ is a story of love, loss, hope and pastures new.
I give this book 5 out of 5.
