The Snow Globe – by Judith Kinghorn

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

A beautiful story of enduring love and heartbreaking choices. 
As Christmas 1926 approaches, the Forbes family are preparing to host a celebration at Eden Hall. Eighteen-year-old Daisy is preoccupied by a sense of change in the air. Overnight, her relationship with Stephen Jessop, the housekeeper’s son, has shifted and every encounter seems fraught with tension. Before the festivities are over, Daisy has received a declaration of love, a proposal and a kiss – from three different men. Unable to bear the confusion she flees to London and stays with her elder sister. 
By the following summer, Daisy has bowed to the persistence of the man who proposed to her the previous year. When the family reunite for a party at Eden Hall and Stephen is once more in her life, it is clear to Daisy she is committing to the wrong person. Yet she also believes that family secrets mean she has no choice but to follow her head instead of her heart. Will love conquer all, or is Daisy’s fate already written?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

I was really intrigued by the blurb of this book and the cover is mysterious and interesting.

The story follows Daisy, who suddenly finds herself between three different men. One told her he loves her, the other proposed and the last one kissed her. Daisy is confused and leaves to stay with her sister. Daisy needs to make a decision. On top of that she is surrounded by her family at Eden Hall and family secrets get into the storyline as well.

I had to admit that I found it really hard to get into the story. There were a lot of characters and a lot of things came together, that was confusing for me.

The descriptions of the time and details in the atmosphere kept me in the book. This is really a point I liked a lot about this book.

It’s not an exciting page-turner, but the book has some special moments.
