Review

Resting the closed paperback beside me less than 5 minutes ago I'm really not sure where to start, except by saying how much I loved Secrets At Maple Syrup Farm!
Cutting the reigns loose for a child who has nursed her mother for so long is such an incredible gift that when it comes to it, it's completely normal for that child, Lucy, to feel guilty about leaving her Mom behind. Adventure often waits relatively close to home which is proved to be true when Lucy jumps on the first bus out of town and ends up in the friendly village of Ashford.
Aside from the delightfully warm and utterly charming characters living in the village the point of interest is actually the apparent bad boy reclusive at the Maple Syrup Farm. As soon as he first appears in nothing more than a euphemism dripping scene, I knew it would be an incredible story watching the barriers come down on the fun and highly sarcastic manner of Clay. Is it wrong that I sped read some chapters to get back to him? I don't think so.
Restoring the farm to its former glory the enchanting location endures a staggering transformation and takes on the time old traditions connected with maple syrup farming. Tapping the named trees, you'll see what I mean when you read the book, the maple syrup is harvested once again and a festival at the farm confirms the popularity of the sugary treat.
The close knit bond of the local community makes Secrets At Maple Syrup Farm a lovely read and makes me wish I lived in a community just like that. Helping each other out and pulling together is a great way to promote kindness and togetherness which really brings the plot of this book to life.
As my first read from Rebecca Raisin I'm already convinced that this won't be my last. The writing is effortless and heart warming to read and the only real sad event is when it ends. A great book which can only be improved by Clay doing something really manly or incredibly romantic at the festival or having a farm on the cover which actually looks like the farm in the book.
