Hello! 👋🏼

Thank you for joining me on my second in a series of book review blogs.
This week it's The Slow Lane Walkers Club. By Rosa Temple.

The Slow Lane Walkers Club, by Rosa Temple

Book Blurb:

DANIEL isn't used to living life in the slow lane. So when he finds himself unexpectedly jobless and back in his old Cornish hometown, he can't sit still.

HAZEL used to be adventurous too. But now widowed and in her eighties, she barely leaves the house. When she sees an advert for Daniel's new walking club, she jumps at the chance of some excitement.

Daniel's heart sinks when he sees that the only person who's turned up for his walking club is the crazy old lady from two doors down. But what he doesn't expect is to discover that Hazel is one of the most fascinating people he's ever met...

A gorgeously warm, and uplifting story about friendship, community, adventure and the joy of walking.

My review.

This is a heart-warming story about Daniel, who isn’t used to living life in the slow lane. When he finds himself jobless, and back in his old Cornish hometown, he can’t sit still.

Amidst the idyllic Cornish scenery, Daniel makes an unexpected friend in Hazel, an 80-year-old widow who is full of surprises.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters worked well together, and I genuinely cared about what happened to them.

It’s a story about life’s twists and turns and how things can work out when least expected.

I loved this book and the fluid way Rosa brings the story, characters, relationships and places to life.

I shall be looking out for more books by Rosa Temple from now on.
