Blurb – It’s January, the height of a New Zealand summer and the Gilbert family have gathered at the campground they’ve been coming to since the seventies to scatter the ashes of youngest son Jeffrey into the sea.
For Jess, the campground holds bittersweet memories. It’s where she passed a childhood of carefree summers, but it’s also the scene of her first heartbreak at the hands of Hunter Aarden. The summer she turned seventeen he promised her he’d love her for always, then he drove out of camp never to be heard from again.
After almost two decades, Jess is finally about to find out why.
Both romantic and humorous, Pohutukawa Highway is a story that reminds us about the importance of family, and the magic of second chances.
I have to be honest and say this is the first book I’ve read by Tammy and what a cracker it is.
Pohutukawa Highway is a lovely feel good story, full of childhood memories, romance and a touch of sadness.
It’s one of those books you don’t want to put down or for it to end. It’s full of warmth and some real laugh out loud moments.
I’m really looking forward to reading more from Tammy.
