The Dream House is the debut novel from dynamic author of fiction Rachel Hore. Pick up this book and discover for yourself the story that put Rachel on the map in the literary world.

When it comes to the house that you are going to one day live in, everyone has their idea of the perfect home. Their perfect house always varies according to who you are asking about it. Some prefer grand old homes, while others would like modern and stylish abodes in which to come home to and live their lives in. No matter what, most people have an idea or a dream of the house in which they would one day like to live.

Kate Hutchinson is the main character in the book. She’s a young mom that is excited about the upcoming move with her husband Simon and the children. They have two children that are still quite young together, and they are planning to move from a small London terrace to a home in Suffolk. Kate hopes that the move will fulfill every dream that she has for her family.

All that Kate wants is some space and some peace of mind. She desperately wants to experience the rural life and something that is far more country than city. It’s a greater appeal for Kate than what they have currently been living in. She wants to just get out and get into the perfect house; one that was made for all of them to live in and where they will have a better quality of life.

Things become a little different than she expected when she moves in for a time with her mother in law. She thinks that it is just a temporary measure, but who knows for sure? The real estate agent gets in touch with the details of a perfect home coming to her through a letter.

Kate is walking about around town one evening when she comes upon a beautiful house. She thinks that this just might be the one; the house she has been dreaming of. She has found it at last when she least expected it. This is a gorgeous house, and it seems to be brimming with memories.

Even though it is a very nice home, it seems to be just out of her reach. Kate wants to find out more about the property, so she gets in touch with the owner. Kate finds out that the owner of the house is Agnes, an older woman who is elderly and frail. The more that she gets to know her, the more that she feels that they have a lot in common.

It seems that Agnes has had a life that mirrors much of Kate’s own life. Through talking with her, Kate starts to realize that a life that is built upon dreams can be very uncertain. Does that mean that she should no longer dream, or does it mean that she should no longer rely on her dreams to sustain her and embrace what is awaiting her in the real world?

Pick up this debut tour de force from author Rachel Hore to find out how this story ends and what Kate decides to do. Will she buy the dream house or decide that she no longer needs it? Buy the book from your local bookstore or check it out online or from your local library to find out!

The Memory Garden is Rachel Hore’s second full-length fictional novel. The main character in this novel in Melanie Pentreath. She lives in the far west of Cornwall in Lamorna Cove. The cove is located in a small bay that is located at the mouth of a valley that is not only hidden but full of wild beauty that is overflowing in abundance.

Ever since her mother died, Melanie has come to the gardens of Merryn Hall in their overgrown verdant plants and a rented cottage to get away from her life. She lives in London and has a busy schedule as an art history lecturer. She is trying to get away from it all to try and recover from her mother’s passing and research a book about painters. She’s also trying to run away from a recently ended relationship.

The place is exactly what she needs to get over it all. As she restores the garden with her landlord Patrick, she begins to slowly assess her life. When Patrick finds some old paintings stored in the attic, the two attempt to uncover the story of who painted them. As they do, they practically travel back in time as they get into a story of ambition and passion from the Edwardian era.

As Mel and Patrick grow closer, can they survive the reality of the vulnerability that a relationship would require? The two have not exactly been lucky in love– but perhaps now is their chance. Can they fall for each other, or will reality intervene? Pick up this novel from author Rachel Hore in order to find out!
