“The Talisman – Molly’s Story” Review

Hello Friends!

So, I started physical therapy this week and I have family here so I’ve been crazy busy. Plus I have to get used to the new schedule with the therapy, that’s mostly why I’m only posting right now.

Today’s review is of “The Talisman – Molly’s Story” by Eliza J Scott and it’s the 2nd book in the Life On The Moors series and was release yesterday, the 4th February 2019.

Thank you Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Eliza for the eCopy of the book and for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour and give my honest review.


20180121_200226Molly’s dream of taking over her childhood home at Withrin Hill Farm with husband Pip and their three children has finally come true. And, as they settle into the stunning Georgian farmhouse, with their plans to diversify into glamping nicely taking shape, the family couldn’t be happier.

But tragedy suddenly strikes, and Molly’s world is turned upside down.

Heartbroken and devastated, she struggles to face each day. True to form, her fiercely loyal best friends, Kitty and Violet, rally round offering love and support, but Molly doesn’t think she’ll ever be able to smile again. Until the day a tall, dark stranger with twinkly eyes arrives…

 Follow Molly’s story in book 2 of the Life on the Moors Series set in Lytell Stangdale, a picture-perfect village in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors, where life is anything but quiet.

A heart-warming story of love, friendship and hope.

When she’s not writing, she can usually be found with her nose in a book/glued to her Kindle, or in her garden.

My Review

As someone that has read the first book and quite enjoyed it, I was quite intrigued about this book, and I must say I loved it just like I did the first one. It was another compelling, relatable and emotional story. And although it can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend you read both and have the full experience and get involved in the community and the characters.

P1070273The book follows Molly and all of the ups and downs in life. It’s about family, love and loss, and it does show us some of Molly’s past so we can fully understand her and connect with her because of her past and present. I loved that I was able to feel empathy with her.

But it’s not only Molly I liked, all the characters that we get to met for the first time and others that we met in book one, that’s why I recommend for you guys to read the first one as well. And get ready to go on an adventure with well written characters through a plot that will make you emotional, laugh, cry, fall in love, feel heartbroken… And everything is a perfect combination and made the book flow and be very enjoyable.

I won’t talk about the book in any particular aspects because I hate spoilers and you guys should enter this book with your head blank so you can really enjoy the story and even connect with Molly and fully understand the struggles she will go through and all the happy moments and funny ones too.

Overall, this is the kind of story that will take you on an journey. A book about friendship, family and life in general. The author made me keep intrigued and invested in the story.
