Saving Sara by Nicola Marsh

MoMo’s Book Diary loves the Redemption series of books from Nicola Marsh and eagerly recommends Saving Sara, the first in the series.                        

I bought this book after reading some tweets about it and I loved it!

Sara is grieving for her three-year-old daughter Lucy and her marriage and doesn’t know how to carry on. When her grandmother passes, Sara inherits her old cottage in Redemption. This is just what she needs to begin her new life…

Jake is grieving after an airline tragedy for which he feels responsible until his sister, Rose, asks him to care for her son, Ollie, while she checks herself into rehab to deal with her reliance on alcohol. Jake agrees, but has no idea how to look after a six-year-old and in desperation calls on his estranged Aunt Cilla who was always there for him when he was young.

Cilla has her own problems but is delighted to welcome Jake and Ollie to Redemption.

The book introduces each character in a way that you really feel you know them and each one is likable. There are some real emotional twists for all involved but it is a very feel-good book that I very much enjoyed.  A heartwarming story with each character discovering they can actually help each other to heal.

This the first in the Redemption Series by Nicola Marsh where we follow the romantic struggle between the two characters as they try to allow themselves a second chance at happiness. This uplifting story reminds us that we can all heal, love and learn to move on from our heart breaks and tragedies.

I am looking forward to reading the next in the series and would highly recommend this delightful book and this author to friends.


When Sara Hardy inherits a cottage in the small town of Redemption, Connecticut, it is just the break she needs to draw a line under her past—to begin again, on her own.

Sara never thought she’d be starting over. She was married, successful, and the mother of a beautiful girl. But the life she thought was on the right path has taken a series of wrong turns…

Meanwhile Jake Mathieson has a lot on his plate. Still reeling from a tragedy for which he feels responsible, he finds himself unexpectedly caring for his six-year-old nephew. In desperation, he comes to Redemption to enlist the help of his Aunt Cilla, a widow with demons of her own.

Jake is intrigued by Cilla’s cautious new neighbor. Like him, Sara is desperate to put the past behind her but not quite sure how to begin. Can Redemption offer either of them a second chance to find hope and happiness—perhaps even to take a risk on new love??
