17 Marigold Lane was such a wonderful read, when I first read the blurb I was a little unsure as it was quite vague but there was something about it that intrigued me so I thought I would give it a go and I am so glad I did – I think it is definitely up there with one of my top reads of 2019. I loved the emotions that this story brought out in me, something that I really wasn’t expecting when I first picked up the book. The authors writing really drew me into the lives of the characters and I felt a good connection with them. I loved Prudence and reading her story, she had so many struggles to overcome and I really did feel everything that she did – I laughed and cried with her. The way in which the author portrayed Cassius’s character I think it commendable, there was probably some temptation to write about him in a stereotypical way but I could tell how much the author had thought about him and his character.
This really was a wonderful read and one that I highly recommend! This is also the first book that I have read by this author, I have no idea why but I can 100% say I will definitely be reading more of her work in the future!
