"Heartsong" by Nicola Furlong



Heartsong by Nicola Furlong is about three daughters helping their widowed father to fulfill a promise he made to a war buddy years ago.  Charly, the daughter with a couple of children, lives with her father and they run a family nursery.  When the father has a heart attack, it gets him thinking about his life and he wants to make things right if he can so shares the broken promise with his family who help him.

I did not care for this book because it moved along so slowly.  The only thing I found sort of interesting were the quotes that referred to gardening at the beginning of each chapter.  Most of the book is the family eating and lame conversations with clich├ęs around the kitchen table.  The only action was when the father had a heart attack and the few incidents Charly’s son did.  If I hadn’t received a free copy in exchange for an honest review, I probably would have quit on it before things picked up a bit around page 148. If you like slow, relaxing family stories, then you would probably love this one!
