Product description

From the Publisher

Although I’m generally a summer lover, when the temperatures begin to drop, I can’t help but fall under the spell of a wintry wonderland, complete with snow-frosted trees, twinkling fairy lights, and fuzzy sweaters. So it’s no surprise that Kitty Johnson’s charming yet poignant novel, Five Winters, found a way to warm my heart.

Set over the course of five winter seasons, this heartfelt novel follows Beth Bailey as one of her lifelong dreams ends and she vows to stop at nothing to make one of her other dreams come true. Kicking off at the wedding of the man she’d always hoped she’d marry, Beth decides she’s done waiting for what she wants to come to her. And so, she turns her focus to her other core desire—becoming a mother. When she meets a charming single father after the first door to love closes, it seems as if the universe may be cracking a window for something even bigger for Beth. But of course, no path in life is as straightforward as we hope, and Beth will face many other detours on her unexpected journey to happiness.

No matter your seasonal preference, Kitty Johnson’s
Five Winters is sure to have you reaching for a cup of cocoa and your thickest scarf as you follow Beth through the frosty streets of England on an adventure that will both test and reward, all while demonstrating that whether or not you get there, no dream in life is too big to chase. So, fans of Josie Silver’s One Day in December and Emily Stone’s Always, in December, it’s time to bundle up, grab your tissues, and settle in for this wistful winter read—summer will just have to wait its turn.

—Alicia Clancy, Editor

4.0 out of 5 stars Proper little winter warmer - really enjoyed it!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on December 8, 2022
The story takes us on a journey through 5 winters of Beth’s life. Beth was a really well fleshed out character and you really felt like you were on the journey alongside her, for all the ‘don’t do that’ moments as well as the ones where you just wanted to give her a hug.

All the characters were so well written and interesting (even Jaimie and his naturist ways 🙃). It made for a compelling and addictive read. The plot and writing style were lovely and it had me devouring the whole book in no time at all.

The plot, characters and emotions they gave you all felt very raw and real, especially Beth’s struggles of knowing what she wants and not being able to/knowing how to get it. After reading the acknowledgements at the end, it’s easy to see why. Johnson has bravely used her own emotions and experiences in such a beautiful way and it came across so well.

For a deep and emotional read with lots of feel good vibes and laugh out loud bits - where you’re rooting for the character all the way through - this is the one for you. A proper little winter warmer which I’d definitely recommend!
