was my first introduction to the writing of Pam Weaver. Pam writes in the family saga genre, a genre which seems to be only ever increasing in popularity. I love history and enjoy reading books in this vein but often I find some books can be absolutely brilliant and enthralling and others fail to meet the mark, for me I felt Always in my Heart fell somewhere in between. I thought the story did get better as it went along and a nice mystery element came into play but maybe it was just that little ...more

This was a good story with a few twists. I was compelled to keep turning the pages. The only problem I had with it was that I felt the ending was a bit rushed. Definitely worth reading.

I loved this book, what a great story. I don't think Pam Weaver gets the praise she deserves this book is defiantly on a par with books I have read by Ellie Dean and Dilly Court. I raced through the book as it kept my attention and was so easy to read. Without giving away any of the story I loved the way that a simple, though lovely story was weaved with secrets and mystery.

I had never heard of this author, but was persuaded to buy this book after a recommendation in Take a Break magazine. I enjoyed the story very much and read it over a just a few days. The different plots interwoven and likeable characters made for a real page turner. I also liked the historical details that showed a lot of research had gone into bringing the farming practices during WW2 into the story. Will be interested to read more of Pam Weaver's work.

A brilliant read

As always Pam weaver has always given me a book I can not put down. Worthing is dear to myself as I grew up in Sussex.
