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.

I don't often go for books such as this one, but having heard of the Star and Sixpence novellas a few months ago (and having worked behind the bar in several pubs) this one piqued my interest. I decided to wait for the complete collection in paperback, and I'm so glad I did.
I adore the world Holl...

There was really no reason why I wanted to read it as a whol...
