Ellie and the Harpmaker by Hazel Prior


On Saturday I was digging through my TBR shelves as I really wanted something lovely to read. I picked up Ellie and the Harp Maker by @hazelpriorbooks which I’d got for Christmas and it was just the perfect book for me to read this weekend.

📖

Last year I’d read Away with the Penguins and loved it so I was really keen to read more of Hazel’s work This was a joy to read. Here’s the synopsis for you;

📖

Meet Dan: Dan needs peace and order. He likes perfectly triangular sandwiches, the way coffee smells of sunshine and harvest, and the sound of birdsong that drifts into his harp-making workshop on Exmoor. His life is quiet, predictable, and safe from any danger of surprises.

📖

Meet Ellie: Ellie is a dreamer. But recently Ellie has stopped dreaming and her world has become very small. Her days are spent keeping a perfect home for her husband, Clive, and trying to keep him happy.

📖

When Ellie stumbles across Dan’s workshop, they cannot imagine that their lives are about to change forever…

📖

First of all the characters are lovely. Ellie is somebody I could imaging being friends with. A friend you’d be really concerned about as her husband Clive is awful and she has lost her way. I also really liked Dan, I thought he was a really refreshing lead in a romance. I loved his passion for nature and his craft.

📖

Ellie and the Harp Maker is an uplifting, gentle and heartwarming read that I found really soothing. I wanted something that was just lovely to read and this one certainly delivered. I thought the story was really engaging and I’m sure I’ll be thinking about Ellie and Dan for a while to come.

📖

Have you read any lovely feel-good books recently that you’d like to recommend?
