A Haven on Orchard Lane by Lawana Blackwell

About: In difficult circumstances, Charlotte Ward, once a famed stage actress, tries to restart her career--only to experience disaster. Against her better judgment, her estranged daughter, Rosalind, comes to her mother's rescue and moves her to a quiet English coastal village. 
Charlotte is grateful to get to know Rosalind after years apart. As one who has regrets about her own romantic past, it's a joy for Charlotte 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 be more complicated than romance? 
Together, mother and daughter discover that healing is best accomplished when they focus less on themselves and more on the needs of others.

My Thoughts:
Readers, I must confess I am not a huge fan of Historical reads, but occasionally certain authors strike me and forever hold my attention, and Lawana Blackwell is one of those authors. 

What she does with a Haven on Orchard Lane is breathtaking as she brings these characters to life. Rather than read the book, she takes you on an experience into a splendid Victorian world that you won't want to leave. Don't miss this book! It is definitely a 5-star read and worth every penny. Get out and get this book! You won't be sorry.

Thank you to the publishers for providing me a complimentary copy for my honest review.
