Ivy LaneTilly Parker needs a fresh start fresh air and a fresh attitude if she is ever to leave the past behind and move on with her life As she seeks out peace and uiet in a new town taking on. As of right now I'm still trying to process my thoughts on Tilly Parker's story because it was just so bloody brilliant so if I begin to ramble and make no sense at all then that's my excuse In Ivy Lane we're introduced to Tilly Parker Cathy begins to reveal to the reader that there is something that has led Tilly to her new destination although the exact reason isn't revealed until a later point within the story It's fair to say that I was intrigued instantly and my mind was whirring with all of the possible reasons as to why Tilly was there She was beginning a new job in the local primary school she was looking for peace and solitude and all of these things pointed to Tilly's past and something dramatic which must have happened to make her want to start completely anew Tilly's past remains a mysterious for uite a while which is something that I just adored Every now and then something would cause Tilly's eyes to swim with tears and it became apparent that as the story progressed I was getting closer and closer to figuring out what had happened to her before Ivy Lane I found myself warming to Tilly immediately not just because it was obvious that she'd suffered some sort of tragedy but because she was just so damn likeable Self deprecating at times comical friendly and genuine Tilly Parker was a woman who I could definitely see myself being friends with What I loved the most though without a shadow of a doubt was Tilly's transition Looking back now from Spring to Winter Tilly undergoes such a marvellous change and it truly warms my heart Avoiding friendship and keeping herself to herself is Tilly's main plan of action when she first steps onto Ivy Lane territory but as the seasons pass her determined wall of solitude is chipped away at and by the time winter arrives Tilly Parker is like a brand new person This change that takes place was incredibly beautiful to witness from a reader's perspective and I was in awe of Cathy's superb talents when it came to matters of the heart The entire Ivy Lane story was a big bundle of friendship love letting go of the past and welcoming in all that is new positive and uplifting It was a pure pleasure to journey alongside Tilly and to watch her push through the surface and blossom into this new sparkling being much like one of the seedlings of Ivy Lane itself I think Cathy's decision to begin each new part of Tilly's story with a new season was genius Not only did it enhance the whole gardening and weather themed feel of the story but it had me thinking beforehand of all that I had to look forward to in the upcoming months Whilst reading in summer I found myself excited about what would be happening in October during Halloween and in December for Christmas The colourful engaging inhabitants of the Ivy Lane allotments drew Tilly in despite her best efforts to not become involved with any of them and it wasn't long until Tilly was planning social events and getting dressed up in a witches outfit Along with the changing seasons came the changing weather The sunshine swapped places with frost and this of course affected the delights that the Ivy Lane gardeners would plant on their allotments It was busy and thrilling and even though I'm the least green fingered person in the world I had this crazy urge to turf soil plant potatoes and carrots and to assemble my own little greenhouse I just think that Cathy has got such a wonderfully cosy package with her Ivy Lane story Everything fits so perfectly and I could honestly see mysel
