The second book in the Holley sisters of Thornthwaite series was even better than the first book. I am so sold on author Kate Hewitt that I will be reading all the books in this series and looking for books from this author to see what else she has written. In this book we get to know Esther the sister that I call the stuck up one. But in reality she has a bit of a control issue going on with not just her family but all things and not does it cause issues in her marriage. Will, her gentle sheep farmer husband is blindsided when she up and leaves him. Life of a Vicar's daughter is not all wine and roses. Nope. This book is so well written. Gotta tell you to make sure you have your Kleenex in hand. Can't wait for Rachel's book haha what is this girl hiding or rather who is she hiding? Will I be surprised when i read it?

A Vicarage Reunion by Kate Hewitt. A book that took me longer to get though. I hadn't read the previous book in The Holley Sisters of Thornthwaite this is book two. I enjoyed the small town setting of the village in England and the characters. This is the story of Esther moving back home with her parents and leaving her husband Will. I've read other books by Kate Hewitt and look for other books by this author.

This story tugs at your emotions! All her life, Esther has worked toward her next goal. So much so, that it seems she is crossing items off her to-do list rather than living her life. Emotions are something she has never done, so she thought Will was perfect for her, because he didn't either. When she finds out she is no longer pregnant, the emotions roll in and she doesn't know how to handle them, but she is convinced her marriage is over . Will is blind-sided when Esther walks out, but determined to get to the bottom of what went wrong. Esther has to discover what makes her happy and how to deal with emotions and find a happy and fulfilling life while, hopefully, she and Will can find their way back to each other. Poor Esther broke my heart. She was so lost and confused, so she headed to the best place to find herself: home to her Mother and Father. Their strength and support, as well as their own relationship, help Esther start to find her way. I can always trust that when I pick up something written by Kate Hewitt that it will have strong characters with lives and problems that I can relate to, while approaching the story in a way that will draw you in and feel every emotion. This was no different.

A Vicarage Reunion is the second book in ‘The Holley Sisters of Thornthwaite’ series. I reviewed the first book, ‘A Vicarage Christmas‘, in October last year and loved it. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. The books are set in Thornthwaite, a little village in the Lake District, and follow the lives of the daughters of Roger (who was the local vicar), and Ruth Holley. The last book focused on Anna Holley, who suffers with social anxiety. This story follows her older sister Esther, who, after suffering a miscarriage decides that she has had enough of her life, and walks out on her husband Will. However, farmer Will isn’t going to be easy to let go of. He wants his wife back and will do anything to win her heart again. What I like about this series is that whilst the books are sweet, easy reads, they also contain hard hitting issues. The first dealt with Anna trying to come to terms with her past and learning how to handle her social anxiety. This book is very much about Esther and how she has reacted to her miscarriage. Whilst others can see that she is grieving, she is unwilling to accept that and wants to just push it to one side, but by doing that she is causing herself more problems, including pushing her husband away. I would advise reading book one before this book, as it contains a lot of information that will help you to fully understand this book. It is also great to catch up with some of the characters again from A Vicarage Christmas. The book is quite short, so won’t take you long to get through, but Ms. Hewitt has certainly packed a lot into those pages. Her writing style flows naturally, and she knows how to create beautiful visual scenery with her words. This is a book that you can dip in and out of whenever you have a few minutes spare, or sit and read in one go, either way you will get pure enjoyment. I can’t wait to read book three now.

Esther is always in control. She has a steady relationship and nothing out of the ordinary ever happens in her life. When a miscarriage causes emotional distress Esther doesn't know how to handle this. After two months Esther still doesn't feel any better. She and her husband Will don't talk about anything and she's had enough. That's why she leaves him and moves back in with her parents at the vicarage of Thornthwaite. Esther thought she'd be relieved that she's finally free, but instead she feels lonely and empty. How can she get her life back on track again and feel like herself once more? Will is stunned when Esther leaves him all of a sudden. He has his farm and animals to look after and has no choice but to keep going, though he feels desolate without his wife by his side. The miscarriage caused a lot of grief for both of them, however, Will had no idea his wife was thinking about leaving him. Esther is his world and he wants nothing more than to be with the woman he loves. He tries to find a way to make Esther see that they still have a chance. Will he be able to pull it off and can Esther and Will save their marriage or is it too late to rescue it, when by not talking to each other they've neglected to make so many important decisions together? A Vicarage Reunion is an emotional romantic story. I loved that Kate Hewitt has chosen to write about a marriage between two people who clearly love each other, but have plenty of issues. Esther is sad, there's something missing in her life and there are many things she should have said to Will, but couldn't because she never dared to speak about them. Her feelings are quite chaotic and Esther needs to find a way to sort through them, which was an interesting journey to witness. Will is as quiet as she is and that makes it difficult for them to share anything about themselves. Their non verbal communication used to be enough, but when that fails they have nothing to fall back on, which is an interesting topic for a moving love story. Esther and Will are wonderful people and I couldn't wait to find out if they'd be able to find happiness again. Kate Hewitt has a fabulous welcoming writing style and her stories always have a heartwarming atmosphere. She skillfully makes her settings come to life through vivid and detailed descriptions. I loved reading about the vicarage and the farm. Will and Esther are fond of animals and that was something I really enjoyed about their personalities. A Vicarage Reunion is a multilayered love story with a lot of depth. Kate Hewitt's descriptions of the emotional turmoil her main characters are in is spot on and the story made me tear up quite a few times. There are many surprising moments and the ending is beautiful and put a big smile on my face. I absolutely loved A Vicarage Reunion, it's captivating, impressive, tender and touching.

A Vicarage Reunion is a wonderful tale of a young couple who's marriage is rocked following a miscarriage. Unhappy and not knowing what to do Esther leaves Will and returns to her parent's home. Still unhappy but determined to restart her life. Esther finds herself exploring dating life with disastrous results. Then Will shows up demanding her to give him a second chance and he plans to show Esther just how special she is by courting her all over again. This is a very well done book and I definitely recommend it.

This is my favorite type of novel. It was sweet, clean and very entertaining. Don't let this fool you into thinking it was light and fluffy, because it is not. Kate captures your heart from the very start of the book. It contains a lot of heartache and lost, but the way her characters work through them makes it a must read. Will and Esther were such strong main characters in this story. Even though they were married eight years and together ten, Esther felt there was nothing left in their relationship. Having a miscarriage, was the last straw for her. There were lots of other family members, as well as church family that added interest to the story line. Kate's characters were all well developed. I related so many times to Esther and what she was feeling and some of the things she had to go through. A quote from the book sums it up for me. “tears were streaming from her eyes and her shoulders were shaking and she felt as if she were falling apart. Literally falling apart right there on the kitchen floor, bits and pieces breaking off until there would be nothing left.” I've been there, how about you. The good news, it doesn't end there. There is so much more to this beautiful story. I whole heartily recommend this book. I received a copy from Net Galley and Tule Publishers and it was not required for me to give a review.
