Book Review: A Haven on Orchard Lane


A Haven on Orchard Lane
By Lawana Blackwell

An urgent escape… A wounded heart… Will Charlotte find the solace she longs for at the cottage on Orchard Lane? Famed Actress Charlotte Ward stepped away from the Victorian London stage five years ago. Now in desperate circumstances, she tries to restart her career – only to experience a complete collapse. Against her better judgement, Charlotte’s estranged daughter, Rosalind, comes to her mother’s rescue and moves her to a quiet English coastal village where her mother can evade the gossip columnists, at least for a time. 

Charlotte is grateful to re-establish even tennis family ties with Rosalind. As one with regrets over her own romantic past, she’s happy to see love blossom for her daughter. For Rosalind, however, it’s time away from teaching, and now she must care for the mother who wasn’t there for her. And what could possibly be more complicated than romance? But there can be no permanent escape from the threats of recent months. As the privacy they seek is threatened, mother and daughter must make some difficult decisions – ones that jeopardize those they care about most. 

Lawana Blackwell has thirteen published novels to her credit, many of them set in the English countryside of the nineteenth century. She and her husband live in Frisco, Texas. 

My Thoughts: I absolutely love that A Haven on Orchard Lane is set in historical England. When I’m reading a book it feels fantastic to be able to forget about whatever I’m stressed with (normally school or modeling things) and Lawana Blackwell’s setting dos just that. I love Charlotte and rooted for her through the whole book. This is a great read for over a weekend. If you like Change of Heart or Fading Starlight you’ll love A Haven on Orchard Lane.
