The stunning novel from the million-copy Sunday Times bestseller
Bellevue Gardens is a tranquil London square, tucked away behind a busy street. You might pass it without knowing it’s there.
Here, through the imposing front door of Number 11, is a place of peace, of sanctuary and of secrets. It is home to Leonie; once a model in the sixties, she came to the house to escape a destructive marriage and now, out of gratitude, she opens her house to others in need.
Rosa, Stef and Rick are running from their own problems. They have all found their way to Leonie’s home, each seeking refuge and searching for a new start.
But then Leonie discovers that the house which has provided sanctuary for so many is under threat. Can she rescue the place that saved her all those years ago…?
