Description

Since her divorce, Adele Collier has pursued her own pleasure at the expense of her daughter. When her ex-husband suddenly reappears in their lives, Adele allows him to take Judy to France with him for the summer. The time apart leads her to realize her daughter is the light of her world, yet she's still not sure she's ready to give up her lifestyle.

Six year old Judy is more than happy to trade her mother's neglect for her father's adoring care. She loves his vineyard and wishes she could stay there forever ... but someday she must return to England and her mother. However, Judy isn't sure she can ever trust her mother again.

A sweet novella set in Europe, the year of 1938, this sweet story is sure to delight loves of light-hearted historical fiction.

Utterly darling <3

4.5 stars.

Such a whimsically beautiful and heartwarming story! If you're a lover of historical novellas or 1930s European settings, this is one you won't want to miss. :D

I read this book in an afternoon and I really enjoyed reading Judy and her parents' story. :) The characters were so great!

Judy was a sweet, precious child. I adored her and Troy's relationship (and their first meeting!).
Troy was a nice guy, probably my favorite character, and I loved the way he stood up to Adele.
Adele was the annoying character of the story, but at the same time you kind of had to like her. I, personally, was able to relate to her habits concerning, um, clutter. (Though my mother may consider killing me if I was THAT bad.) :P

For such a young author, Miss Roth's writing is superb. I found no cliches or cringeworthy sentences. And if there were any grammatical errors (I don't think there was any, but I could've missed it/them.) they were minimal.

The one downfall I found in the novella was the lack of biblical content. The book isn't listed as Christian fiction, so I would've been fine with just a clean, historical fiction, except for one thing. There's one mention of Joseph and the Bible at which time we're told Judy does not understand what her father is telling her. So...why isn't it explaining these things to his daughter? Telling her Bible stories?

All in all, this was a sweet, historical novella with a dash of romance. I enjoyed it immensely. ^_^

**I received a free e-ARC from the author in exchange for my honest review.**
