My Thoughts

I just cannot resist a Jules Wake book (not that I even try to).  There’s something special about them.  When I am reading, I completely believe that I belong to, and am part of something and I am always left feeling glowing inside – like I’ve had a successful therapy session.

Although I don’t really wild water swim, I live on the coast and it’s a very common thing in my community and it’s such a wonderful way of bringing people together. 

Ettie is working for Dominic and Grace as they try to revive a mansion and turn it into an outward bounds centre.  After a string of interesting jobs in London, Ettie is hoping she has found the job that will enable her to settle.  As she powers on with changed and renovations, she also becomes closer to members of the community and Dominic. 

I loved Ettie and how she created a swimming community full of people who needed the to be there for themselves.  I enjoyed the various quirky characters and it was lovely to see Hilda again (from The Saturday Morning Park Run).  Dominic is also a lovely character but a little more guarded due to his experiences.  I did want to shake Ettie a bit about the secret keeping but I do love a flawed character. 

There is a romance plot but this book also has a strong focus on friendship and community and how much this impacts people.  It’s also about overcoming fears and moving forward and learning to love who you are. 

I adored this book as much as book 1 in this linked series and I cannot recommend it enough.  It’s perfect and such a heart-warming, hopeful novel.
