Review of HUMMINGBIRD LANE by Carolyn Brown

Hummingbird Lane is a fictional place, but in reality, we all need a place like this. Emma and Sophie befriended each other in childhood when Sophie’s mom Rebel was the housekeeper for Emma’s mother Victoria. Separated by Victoria’s determination to control Emma’s life, the story begins when the two women are re-united because Sophie wants to rescue Emma from an institution and whisk her away to her hideaway at Hummingbird Lane. A place with tiny trailers and a landscape that was breathtaking, it awakened in Emma a new desire to not just to survive but to thrive. Everyone needs a friend like Sophie and a place like Hummingbird Lane! I loved the realistic characters, each one portrayed with their own secrets and weaknesses which made them even more endearing. I wanted to visit Hummingbird Lane and see the views, sitting in the stillness of a place that seemed to speak to hearts. This book teaches a lesson and touched my heart with the simplicity of relationships that you can count on and places you can escape to. With a plot that had many surprises and a lot of energy, this book was one that I was happy to read because it made me think of my friends and my special places and gave me things to consider about life’s choices and how we can change things in mid-stream and be better for that decision. Fans of the author and women’s fiction with strong female protagonists will thoroughly enjoy this book.
