Publisher's summary

The perfect escapist listen, for all fans of Cathy Bramley and Scarlett Bailey. A Year at the Star and Sixpence is Holly Hepburn's four Star and Sixpence novellas collected together as a novel for the first time.

When sisters Nessie and Sam inherit a little pub in a beautiful country village, they jump at the chance to escape their messy lives and start afresh. But when they arrive at the Star and Sixpence, it's not quite what they imagined - it's pretty much derelict, ruined by debts, and it's going to be a huge job to get it up and running again. But they are determined to make the best of this new life, and they set about making the pub the heart of the village once again. Their first year at the Star and Sixpence won't be easy, though nothing worth doing ever is.

But when the sisters' past comes back to haunt them, they start to think that the fresh start they needed is very far away indeed....

Curl up with A Year at the Star and Sixpence - the perfect novel to start the new year the way you mean to go on.

Great Distraction

I loved this story and the detail of each recount. What a great distraction on my daily 2 hour commute.
