I am delighted to share my review today for A Hare’s Footprint by Celia Moore. This is sadly the third and final book in the Fox Halt Farm series, one I have enjoyed from the very start.
CELIA MOORE’S A HARE’S FOOTPRINT is the final part of the Fox Halt Farm trilogy – the compelling epic tale with a backdrop of Dartmoor, Devon continues… There is so much of the past that Billy has spent years avoiding. There’s a future where dreams could rip everything apart. And someone has a deadly vendetta. Should you grasp at your dreams?
I have read and enjoyed every single one of the book in this trilogy and it is quite sad that it has come to an end. It is one that you do need to read in order to understand the complex backstories that the author has gradually woven throughout each of the books.
The subtitle – Grasping at Dreams is such an appropriate title for this final book. The dreams are not just for one of the characters but for several, some more obvious than others. Billy dreams of building up the Fox Halt Farm business to include ice cream, her husband Richard dreams of finally finishing work and having time to explore and travel. Others want to do their best for loved ones and others are determined to upset the applecart. As for the main title of A Hare’s Footprint, well that you will discover more about it in the story itself!
This book was quite an emotional roller coaster, especially between Billy and Richard, they were so hell-bent on following their dreams that they got caught up in their own excitement without thinking of the other. Any changes to the running of the farm have implications that run further than the everyday schedules and routines. Sometimes being so determined and dogged in wanting to do the best can leave you blind to the feelings and wishes of others.
Within this trilogy there have been several major events, the author still links them and brings them back into play. This is why I do recommend reading it from the beginning. The author really did put her characters through the mill, as she has done in the past. This time it makes people have to stop. Give them a chance to process what they have. While it was emotional and also compelling reading it gave the characters a chance to re-evaluate not only themselves but also the role they have in the larger scheme of things.
This has been such a wonderful trilogy and it is a contemporary fiction saga that revolves around the family and friends of Fox Halt Farm. It has had many twists and unexpected surprises, love, loss and life. Some magical moments, some fun moments and all in all a very compelling series. It is a trilogy I would definitely recommend.
