This is a wonderfully warm and witty novel about starting again, from the author of The Memory Book.
Six months ago, city girl Sophie Mills gave up everything to move to Cornwall.
All to be with the man she thinks she loves, and his two daughters who she knows she loves.
But adjusting to life as a semi-permanent mother in the countryside isn't quite as easy as Sophie imagined it would be.
Designer shoes aren't nearly so readily available - not that she ever has any occasion to wear them - and her best pair of vintage Manolo's have already found their way into the girls' dressing-up box.
Sometimes Sophie doesn't recognise herself; which most of the time makes her happy but every now and then scares her to death.
The hardest thing of all is making that final commitment to actually move in with Louis and the girls - she's been the longest paying guest of the Avalon B&B, St Ives in the history of the establishment. And as she tries to adapt to country life, her newly adopted family and discovering more about Louis' past, she begins to wonder if she's got what it takes to make it all work...
