About this deal

Needless to say, I found this first installment of Elin Hilderbrand's Winter series to be flat out entertaining, but I can't dismiss the palpable emotion that popped up unexpectedly. Lots of characters with both individual and connected crises, but I could handle it...and I'm ready for more! On to the next! There is a vast amount of supporting characters whose storylines are weaved around Sky’s to bring all the characters together and to help and support each other as we typically see in a village with its welcome ( and sometimes unwelcome ) community spirit. There is a blossoming romance that faces some bumps along the road but it made it feel a more genuine relationship that has its battles to face as two people really get to know each other. We have the sweet natured Wilf too who is a key character who is facing a big change in his family dynamic but having Sky and Daz to help him with various distractions was just what he needed. I loved reading about the restoration, let’s face it purchasing a gorgeous old house abd doing it up is a dream for a lot of people, or it is for me, so the only way I get close without winning the lottery is in books like this. I also love how the house is a haven, not only for Sky but for others too (again no spoilers) and becomes a central part of the community too.

It’s not long before the locals are making themselves known and either enticing Sky to the local pub, or dictating what she should do to prepare for the annual street decorating competition. Whilst Sky may seem quite closed off she’s not shy about expressing herself and the way she handled the decoration committee had me grinning from ear to ear. She was firm without being rude and made it clear that she would do it her way and in her own time. The nature touches that were introduced in the story were lovely and once again showed how the simplest of activities can be the most enjoyable.

I absolutely loved this Christmas read from Sue Moorcroft, I mean I may be a bit biased as she is one of my go to authors for a romance or even better, a Christmas romance like this is. Her stories have everything you could want in them, community, friendships, love obviously, but for this one you can add snow, Christmas spirit, forgiveness and hope. Sky was really ecologically sensitive, which, with a name like Sky Terran, is no surprise. I loved that her focus was in improving the landscape for both the villagers and the wildlife, and the way in which she made changes to her surroundings that would help. I think life would be much better if we all took a leaf out of her book.

Sky, I loved her so much, you can’t help but feel for her and connect with her , even if I’m not an eco-vegan perfect soul that she is, she’s so likeable and you just want her to come out on top every time. Darragh is our gorgeous leading man, he seems so perfect, gorgeous, charming (once the initial hostility has passed) and loves kids, is he too good to be true ? Well you’ll have to read it to find out because you’ll get no spoilers from me.I liked all the family members especially Margaret. She changed her plans to help her kids and ex-husband.

This book is just magical and really fuels my desire to get outside in the snow, I know it’s not likely to happen any time soon but when it does I’ll be donning my wellies and keeping my eyes peeled for the snow stories like Sky. Nature plays a massive part of this book and it’s prompted me to refill my little bird feeder set up – I’ve also been rather tempted to make some shaped fat balls as they sound incredible, rather festive and pretty simple – even if very messy! By May 1948, Commonside Sanatorium was being run as an annexe to Winter Street Hospital, and by 1951 Dronfield Hospital was also administered in that capacity.There is a great cast of characters. They are well written and all have their own quirks and qualities that bring this story to life.

I loved WINTER STREET. Elin Hilderbrand has woven together a juicy cast of characters with lots of drama for this Christmas-themed family treat. ❄🎄 In this, the first book in Elin Hilderbrand's Winter Street series, one family experiences a ton of chaos right around Christmas.Sheffield No 3 Hospital Management Committee annual reports, 1957-1959 (Sheffield Local Studies 362.11 SQ) Winter Street sets the bait for the Winter series. I enjoyed the audio and as soon as I was done with it, I was purchasing the next book, Winter Stroll. I'm so happy all the books are out so I don't have to wait anytime in between discovering what will be the future of these characters. This book was filled with community spirit and I loved how Christmas Day turned out for them all. Wilf and Sky’s friendship was endearing; once again, she had that connection and ability to help, without taking control. I knew that Abby was up to no good as soon as she appeared on the scene but it was fun seeing her story play out and watching Daz kindly put her in her place.
