I’m so excited to share with you today, Wyld Dreamers by Pamela Holmes. I am very honored to be taking part in the Wyld Dreamers blog tour. (I’ve attached the blog tour banner at the bottom of this post, so you can check out all of the awesome bloggers who are taking part in the tour. I was very kindly sent a copy of this book to read and review for Clem Loves. A huge thank you to Kelly at Love Group Book Tours, for letting me take part in this blog tour for this incredible book. Also a huge thank you to Urbane Publications and Pamela Holmes.
As I don’t want to spoil this book for you, I won’t be giving any spoilers away in this post. I am sharing my thoughts and feelings on this book and why I love it so much. The only little bit I will be giving away is the blurb, which you can find and read below. I would love to know what books you are currently loving and reading? Please let me know in the comments below.
“In the summer of 1971, a group of friends are invited to Somerset to help photographer Seymour Stratton, to renovate a dilapidated cottage on Wyld Farm. Over the next year the group start to regard the farm as offering them a place to be for the rest of their lives, ‘the good life’. But eighteen months later, the rural idyll collapses. Twenty-five years later, the group is brought together again when they inherit the cottage from Seymour. But the events of the past have not been forgotten and secrets will be revealed that will devastate once unbreakable friendships….”
About the author…
“Pamela Holmes was born in Charleston, South Carolina. At the age of eight, she moved with her family to England. She works and volunteers to improve the lives of older people, including those with dementia, and sings in a rock band.
She won the Jane Austen Short Story Award in 2014 and her shortlisted work was highly recommended in the HISSAC award 2015. Pamela lives in London with her husband, acclaimed cartoonist Kipper Williams.” (I absolutely love that Pamela sings in a rock band!)
This is the first novel I have read by Pamela Holmes and I can’t wait to read more from Pamela. “Over 5000 copies sold of Pamela’s first novel, The Huntingfield Paintress”. I will definitely be checking out Pamela’s first novel. I think what first attracted me to this book was the title and the front cover. I was very intrigued to find out what this book was all about. After reading the blurb, I just knew I had to read it. Wyld Dreamers is brilliantly written and kept me on the edge of my seat, just wanting to know more and more about this story and the characters. I really love Pamela’s style of writing. The book I find, is very descriptive and describes each setting perfectly, and in my mind whilst reading, I could picture each character and their surroundings. It was very hard to put the book down and I found myself thinking about the characters long after reading. It was hard to not flick through the pages, as I just couldn’t wait to see what happens.
As mentioned in the blurb above, this book is about a group of old and new friends, who join each other in Somerset, to help photographer Seymour Stratton, renovate a dilapidated cottage. I love that this story is set in Somerset in the 70’s. I can just picture the beautiful scenery now. We are then brought back to the characters again, 25 years later. This is a brilliant, addictive and gripping novel, one that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading. I couldn’t wait to get home and find out what happens next. I highly recommend checking out Wyld Dreamers. It’s available to buy now on Amazon on Kindle and paperback. This book definitely doesn’t disappoint. The fast-paced story, the setting, and characters will leave you wanting to read more and more.
