Book Description

‘This may just have saved my life…’ The hurried scribble in the dusty visitors’ book catches Gwen’s eye. Just like that, she is drawn into a mystery at the heart of the pretty village of Hopley, and her troubles seem to fall behind.

When tragedy strikes, Gwen Stanley finds herself jobless and heartbroken. With nowhere else to turn, she retreats to Hopley, a crumbling little village in the sun-dappled English countryside. Wandering the winding lanes and daydreaming about what could have been, Gwen feels so very lost for the first time…

Until one day she pushes through the creaking doors of a tiny stone church on the edge of the village, forgotten by nearly everyone. There she stumbles on a little book full of local secrets. It might just change her life.

Review 

St. Domneva’s Church’s roof was about to collapse, and the place was at risk of permanent closure if Vicar Dave did not come up with the funds needed for the repair.

Out of ideas, the vicar tried something a little out of the ordinary and ended up with two very unlikely volunteers: Gwen and Jarvis.

Gwen was shy and introspective, and Jarvis was the never-do-well of the village that spent his days at the pub and lived with his parents.

I loved how despite having other reasons to volunteer, both Gwen and Jarvis ended up in love with the cause and committed to helping save the historical church.

Their journey was very inspiring, and it was lovely to see their different personalities and perspectives of life complementing each other. Their slow-burn connection was so sweet.

I enjoyed all the side stories. There was a comforting sense of kindness, friendship, and family all through the pages.

Hidden Secrets at the Little Village Church is a lovely feel-good read.

Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
