Today, the review of The Mill River Redemption comes to you from my Mum, Annette. She’s asked me to type it up for her as she isn’t too good on computers and prefers to just let someone else do it! It was nice to spend some time with my Mum talking about books and more so because it was over a nice cup of tea! (When is it ever horrible?)

Having unexpectedly lost her husband and lacking the means to support herself, Josie DiSanti and her two daughters take refuge in the small town of Mill River, to live with Josie’s aunt, Ivy. The sisters, Rose and Emily, are inseparable growing up – until a shocking tragedy tears them apart.
Years later, Rose and Emily return to Mill River for the reading of their mother’s will, where they learn that Josie would do anything to force their reconciliation: the sisters must move into neighbouring houses for the summer and work together to locate the key to Josie’s safe deposit box, which contains their inheritance. And so, left with no choice, Rose and Emily reluctantly begin their search. But in a place known for its magic and miracles, little do they know that an even greater treasure awaits them.
Thank you to Little, Brown Book Group and Clara for sending my Mum a copy to read and review; I really appreciate you allowing her to review this book. Now, I’m handing you over to my Mum!
Thank you to Clara, I really appreciate you sending me this book to review, it was my first and I have to admit it was awfully exciting. However, I’m not sure my new profession is Book Blogger.
The Mill River Redemption focuses on sisters Rose and Emily as they come to terms with a heartfelt tragedy that sadly develops into a family fraud.
I have to admit it was a very slow book to start, but the more I read, the more I was quite interested in how the story would develop. However, I knew quite early on what was going to happened and it spoiled it for me.
All in all, it was a nice and easy read and it helped me to enjoy my long night shifts at work.
