Finding Love at Hedgehog Hollow turned out to be quite different from what I had expected. In fact, it surpassed all my expectations.
There are so many themes running through the novel — kindness, jealousy, infidelity, loneliness, estrangement, and love. It’s a wholesome story but not removed from reality.
It doesn’t set out to right all wrongs, instead it sends a message that there are some things that cannot be remedied because that’s just how life is.
The overwhelming sentiment is that of kindness, but it also points to the fact that usually people take advantage of kind-hearted people and consider them pushovers to be manipulated at will.
The novel is extremely well-researched as it shows from the details about hedgehogs and setting up and operating a rescue center. There’s also an entire poem dedicated by the MC to another character!
It was difficult to read about how (and later why) Samantha’s mother treated her with such indifference. Unfortunately, the bitterness between the two spans the entire novel.
There were many twists and turns in this novel that I thoroughly enjoyed. I thought the title pointed to a new love that the MC found at Hedgehog Hollow, but it turns out that that’s not the entire picture.
I’ll leave it to you to find out!
Can love really be found when you stop looking for it…?
As Samantha Wishaw watches the love of her life marry another woman, she’s ready to give up hope of finding her happy ever after.
But when a chance encounter leads Sam to find friendship in Thomas – a lonely, grumpy elderly widower living at derelict Hedgehog Hollow – her life is about to change forever.
Glad to have a distraction from family feuds and match-making, Sam vows to fulfill Thomas and his wife, Gwendoline’s, dreams of restoring Hedgehog Hollow to its former glory, and to open a hedgehog rescue centre.
Throwing herself into the task at hand, little does Sam realise that the keys to love and happiness may also be found at Hedgehog Hollow, when she least expects it…
