What I Thought of this Book:
What I Loved: I loved that this was a sequel that extended the story of the Winter Cottage book by Mary Ellen Taylor . The story featured Megan Buchanan’s story, but still had some of the lovable characters from Winter Cottage.
One other thing that I really loved was a section of the book that featured breastfeeding and the difficulties. I thought that it was an odd thing to focus on, but I LOVED seeing the struggles and the real-life feel of that section. Thank you to Mary Ellen Taylor for doing that.
How I Felt: I wasn’t quite as intrigued as with Winter Cottage, but I am by no way saying that this book wasn’t just as good. I just REALLY liked Winter Cottage.
To Read or Not To Read: If you read Winter Cottage, you should definitely pick up this book. If you haven’t read Winter Cottage, I believe this book could stand alone, but is so much more intriguing after learning the history from Winter Cottage.
What’s This Book About Anyway?
Spring House is again a story that follows the lives of the people living at Winter Cottage, but also jumps back in time to help unravel secrets from 70+ years earlier. This book focused on Megan, very pregnant and working hard to renovate and restore Spring House. She, Lucy, and Natasha begin to find historical letters and pieces in the house that unlock secrets to Megan’s great-great-grandfather, Claire Buchanan, and her lost-to-history sister, Diane. This story continued the great history that was started in Winter Cottage and it’s well-worth the read.
