Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Truly gorgeous, heartwarming, emotive read – Because You Loved Me by Beth Moran

My Review:

A story of escaping the present to look for the past,
Leaving behind heartbreak and uncaring at last.
Searching for history of her beloved Dad
Now she's grown up and not sure she's so bad.

A story that's told by Marion Miller throughout
But both from her past and now sharing what her life's about.
It seems so fitting for Marion to be
In Sherwood Forest to discover what she can see!

What a delightful community at the holiday park
With welcoming friendships and many a lark.
Learning to fit in and to let others in, too,
Whilst searching to discover more about her Dad she'll do.

There are so many lovely characters in this book,
I highly recommend you give it more than a look.
Marion's childhood was awful, so very sad,
You keep on hoping now there'll be nothing bad!

I really enjoyed escaping into this read,
It is so emotive, just what I need.
There's life, laughter, heartbreak and romance
As Marion opens her heart to give love a chance.

For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
As I share with you this, my honest review.


Marion Miller needs a fresh start.

Her childhood in Northern Ireland wasn’t easy, with a father who passed away when she was young and a mother who got lost in grief. Now grown-up and with family relations as tense as ever, Marion heads to England, to find out the truth about her father’s mysterious past – and hopefully an extended family who will love her as much as he did.

Scarlett Obermann runs a holiday park in Sherwood Forest with her daughter Grace, but what’s she’s best at is making people feel like they belong. With her merry band of waifs and strays, Scarlett welcomes Marion with open arms, and it isn’t long before Marion finally understands what it means to find a home. 

As she tries to uncover her father’s story, Marion slowly blossoms, even daring to indulge in her crush on Reuben, the son of the Lord of the Manor, but she hasn’t quite out-run her past. And as Scarlett faces her own tragedy, it’s Marion’s turn to take care of everyone. 

Because you can’t choose your family, but you can make your friends the family you choose. 

This novel was first published as Making Marion.
