Publisher Description

Home is where the heart is – but what happens to your heart when the people you love are scattered around the world?
Hannah and Matt are very happy together, living in London's cool East End with their two young children. Hannah has a job she loves as a beauty editor and Matt is always just about to break through as a songwriter.
But then events start to pull them apart, with Hannah certain they'd be much better off down in the English countryside with her family – and Matt's mum needing them with her, back in Sydney, 17 000 kilometres away.
Hannah's mother, Marguerite, mends broken china, but can she can repair her damaged marriage? And Matt's vivacious young cousin, Ali, feels lost, looking for love in a strange city.
All of them have unsettling secrets and while some are better shared, others might be best left unspoken – the problem is knowing which are which.
In this story of three women's search for a place to call home, Maggie Alderson crosses continents and generations to explore how we find happiness – and whether love can survive betrayal.

Alderson delivers again

As a fan of Maggie Alderson, this book is another great title to add to the bookshelf. I always enjoy reading her books as the characters are interesting along with the locations that they find themselves in. I would've give this book five stars, but the ending was too predictable. See what you think!

It's okay

Very Maggie Alderson. Yet at the same time.... I don't know.... Not up to her magical standards.
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I pre-ordered and bought it. It just doesn't seem to have her usual glow.
Otherwise, very good escapism.

Everything Changes But You

Wonderful book! Made me laugh, cry and rush to get to the next page. The characters were tangible and I was able to be part of their lives. A great read!
