The Friendship Tree by Helen J Rolfe TANYA REVIEW

This is a lovely story that although has dark patches has a lovely feel good factor about it with a town coming together to solve some problems and to make newcomers feel welcome. This all stems from the fact that they can contact each other via the friendship tree. The majority of the book takes place in Australia in a small rural town of Brewer Creek with the main characters being Tamara Harding and Jack Manning

Tamara is recovering from a bad relationship she had in London and has gone to Brewers creek to visit her mum, Katherine and her husband, Bobby and to lick her wounds. Her step dad is the local vet that has his own secret that Tamara helps uncover. She gets on very well with her mum and her step dad and is enjoying her time with them. She has been approached to write up a local friendship tree with all the local names and contact names on it so that should there be a need all the numbers would be to hand. There is one person she cannot bring herself to like the young man trying to muscle in on her stepdads vets business with setting up his own veterinary and acquiring some of Bobby’s regular customer, of course th new vet happens to be Jack Manning.

There is a curious circumstance also that is happening in Jacks life and although he has a partner, April, there is instant chemistry between him and Tamara. They both recognise it and struggle for a long time not to react on it.

I do not want to say any more about the story but I feel in love with the character of Tamara and how she is loyal to her family and friends. She works hard for the village she has only just joined and builds up a great friendship with many of the locals.

It is the first book that I have read by this author and I need to thank Suzanne Smith for sending me a copy of this great book.
