Anna Browne is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life. Her day job as a receptionist in bustling London isn’t exactly her dream, yet she has everything she wants. But someone thinks Anna Browne deserves more . . .
When a parcel addressed to Anna Browne arrives, she has no idea who has sent it. Inside she finds a beautiful gift – one that is designed to be seen. And so begins a series of incredible deliveries, each one bringing Anna further out of the shadows and encouraging her to become the woman she was destined to be. As Anna grows in confidence, others begin to notice her – and her life starts to change.
But who is sending the mysterious gifts, and why?
Anna never receives parcels so when one gets delivered to her place of work she is rather surprised, especially as the sender is anonymous.
An opportunity to shadow the handsome Ben gives Anna a chance to try something new. Usually a receptionist, she is now learning about journalism and how they get their stories, this unfortunately thrusts Anna into the spotlight.
I loved Miranda’s writing, its quick and fast-paced plot, with reminiscences of Anna’s past, the mystery of the parcels is delightfully unveiled. Are these parcels related to her past? I wondered.
Did Ben send them?
Watching Anna grow in confidence with each gift is simply uplifting.
There are a LOT of characters in this novel, each with their own story. I raced through this book just wild to know who the sender was. When it came to the 6th parcel I was happily frustrated.
While A parcel for Anna Browne is set in London, I loved the references to Cornwall. I was taken back to my own childhood and the holidays I had spent there. With the tale of Godrevy..Miranda, you gave me a long forgotten memory..Thank you.
A Parcel for Anna Browne is enchanting, and while I was a bit disappointed with the ‘culprit’ as I wanted it to be someone else,
I recommend it to every type of reader. I read it in one sitting on a rainy day and was absolutely engrossed.
