display There were still plenty of moments that had me The Debutantes Daring Proposal (Regency Bachelors laughing smiling and groaning outoud though imagining the antics going on in and around the allotments Even when displaying her serious side Tilly still manages to make me smile there is a vulnerability and dippy side that just makes me want to hug her and say bless As I drew close to the

Soon Tilly starts to make friends with the other Ivy Lane gardeners and is being drawn and into theirovely worldI adored the Ivy Lane people and their stories They were all very cute At first I wasn t really sure if all this gardening stuff would be for me but as it turned out it was Maybe that s because it was not that much gardening in the end But still I kind of want to own an allotment myself and grow fruits or whatever The atmosphere of the book was so cozy and nice all the time I Band of Soldiers loved it What I alsooved was that Tilly s story is split into four parts or four seasons The Jewels of Manhattan like so we accompany her throughout one whole year So we have one year to unravel Tilly s past and find a new meaning for her futureifeI am uite sad that the book is over now because I don t really want to say goodbye to Ivy Lane allotments Oh and the girl from Appleby Farm appears towards the end of the book so I already got to know her a tiny bit which was nice because Appleby Farm will be one of my next reads As of right now I m still trying to process my thoughts on Tilly Parker s story because it was just so bloody brilliant so if I begin to ramble and make no sense at all then that s my excuse In Ivy Lane we re introduced to Tilly Parker Cathy begins to reveal to the reader that there is something that has ed Tilly to her new destination although the exact reason isn t revealed until a ater point within the story It s fair to say that I was intrigued instantly and my mind was whirring with all of the possible reasons as to why Tilly was there She was beginning a new job in the The Tryst Betrayed local primary school she wasooking for peace and solitude and all of these things pointed to Tilly s past and something dramatic which must have happened to make her want to start completely anew Tilly s past remains a mysterious for uite a while which is something that I just adored Every now and then something would cause Tilly s eyes to swim with tears and it became apparent that as the story progressed I was getting closer and closer to figuring out what had happened to her before Ivy Lane I found myself warming to Tilly immediately not just because it was obvious that she d suffered some sort of tragedy but because she was just so damn Barron's AP Biology Flash Cards, 3rd Edition likeable Self deprecating at times comical friendly and genuine Tilly Parker was a woman who I could definitely see myself being friends with What Ioved the most though without a shadow of a doubt was Tilly s transition Looking back now from Spring to Winter Tilly undergoes such a marvellous change and it truly warms my heart Avoiding friendship and keeping herself to herself is Tilly s main plan of action when she first steps onto Ivy Lane territory but as the seasons pass her determined wall of solitude is chipped away at and by the time winter arrives Tilly Parker is Amrita Sher-Gil like a brand new person This change that takes place was incredibly beautiful to witness from a reader s perspective and I was in awe of Cathy s superb talents when it came to matters of the heart The entire Ivy Lane story was a big bundle of friendshipove Flashback My Life And Times In Bollywood And Beyond letting go of the past and welcoming in all that is new positive and uplifting It was a pure pleasure to journey alongside Tilly and to watch her push through the surface and blossom into this new sparkling being muchike one of the seedlings of Ivy Lane itself I think Cathy s decision to begin each new part of Tilly s story with a new season was genius Not only did it enhance the whole gardening and weather themed feel of the story but it had me thinking beforehand of all that I had to City Improbable look forward to in the upcoming months Whilst reading in summer I found myself excited about what would be happening in October during Halloween and in December for Christmas The colourful engaging inhabitants of the Ivy Lane allotments drew Tilly in despite her best efforts to not become involved with any of them and it wasn tong until Tilly was planning. A plot at Ivy Lane allotments seems ike the perfect solutionBut the friendly Ivy Lane community has other ideas and gradually draw Tilly in to their cosy comforting world of planting.
Cathy Bramley has wrote an amazing chick it once again I really enjoyed the story and felt myself connecting to Tilly instantly I found her background story really interesting and was itching to know

to get some peace and uiet However she soon realises this is the ast thing she is going to get by going there Soon she makes tons of friends and is starting to feel alive again after her husbands car crashWhat I really enjoyed with Ivy Lane and Appleby Farm which is another of Cathy Bramley s books is that they interlinked Ivy Lane is set before Appleby Farm although they are about completely different characters some other characters slide in and out of the books It was ike a SOS Schlank ohne Sport - light bulbit up inside my head when I was reading Ivy Lane and all of a sudden Freya popped up that s when I realised that Gemma Tilly s new best friend is also is Appleby Farm The Charming the Firefighter (In Shady Grove, linking of the stories and the characters is beautifully done and not confusing in the slightestThe character of Charlie freaked me out aittle same as he did in Appleby Farm I was never a huge fan I know he was meant to come across as obsessive and over the top about Tilly but I still did find him a Making India Work little strange Ioved Gemma and her relationship with Tilly and it actually made me want to get involved in some sort of communityOverall a fab book and an easy read I couldn t put it down I enjoyed it so much Can t wait to read Cathy Bramley books She is fast becoming one of my favourite authors 45 starsWell so that gardening and swapping

loved every page and waxedyrical about it at every opportunityThe story is about a character Tilly Parker and the people she meets and becomes friends with when she takes on a new hobby as an allotment owner Tilly had moved to the area ooking for a fresh start from what we re not told but it does involve a man called James She takes on an allotment as a way of seeking the outdoors and some solitude a way to regain her euilibrium Peace and solitude I could have told her finding that would be difficult my husband had an allotment for several years and his allotment friends as I called them were all different characters and ages from all walks of ife privacy and solitude don t go together when you become part of an allotment community Cathy had clearly done her research as he characterisations were so accurate Our that s the royal our allotment was in the same condition as Tilly s when we took it over and all the surrounding allotment owners came and gave their advice pitched in with tools and gossiped the day away With each person Tilly met I could draw on my memories of allotment Operation Lipstick life and say oh shehe is justike or do you remember that day when Tilly Parker kept her cards close to her chest as to her reasons for turning up in Ivy Lane but as the book progresses we see her opening up a From Blah to Awe little and seriously having her head turned romantically not by one but two suitors Ioved the way her whole demeanour altered when she arrived at the allotment totally relaxing and osing herself in the job at hand her beautiful nature shining through time and time again when she gives time to others putting their needs and feelings to the forefront of everything she doesA highly amusing part of the book saw the allotment owners gearing up for a TV crews arrival They were to film a new television programme set at the allotments It was also time for the annual produce competition Needless to say there was ots of primping and pruning done and not just to the allotments I aughed and smiled so much reading all the antics oving all the characters and their ittle ways both subtle and in your faceIt was great to be a voyeur watching the story unfold there are those that ove the An Allegheny Homecoming limelight and those thatike to blend into the background Secrets jealousies and How to Measure a Cow love share eual space on the page and I oohed and ahhed whilst Tilly found feelings surfacing that she d kept battened down for soong Her relationship with her new friend Gemma is another big favourite of mine she makes me The Debt Bomb laugh smile and groan in eual measures Throughout the book there are aot of sub stories that Cathy throws out reeling the reader in and then Syphons Song (Mayflower Mages, leaving them dangling But none so than halfway through the book With Ivy Lane Cathy has developed characters that are highly imaginable and feel to meike real people Tilly Parker the main character in Ivy Lane develops and blossomed as the book progressed I did think it was a stroke of genius and so very apt of Cathy to centre the story around an allotment where things grow with The Consultants Christmas Proposal love and care Justike Tilly with all. Tilly Parker needs a fresh start fresh air and a fresh attitude if she is ever to The Resignation leave the past behind and move on with herife As she seeks out peace and uiet in a new town taking on.
