'Lucy Dillon's books never fail to make me happy' Jenny Colgan
Sometimes the cracks in your heart can be mended in unexpected ways . . .
If Lorna's learned one thing, it's that courage is something you paint on like red lipstick, even when you're panicking inside. And right now, with the keys to the town’s gallery in her hand, Lorna feels about as courageous as the anxious little dachshund trembling beside her.
Sick of life in the big city, Lorna’s come home to fulfil her dream of running a successful art gallery. Desperate for change, Lorna just wants a fresh start but can she find it in Longhampton? This is where her tight-knit family shattered into pieces. It's where her doubts about herself took root and where she first fell in love and had her heart broken. It's everything she was running away from.
But life and love can surprise you and all Lorna has to do to let the light in is open her heart . . .
An uplifting and inspiring novel about second chances and soon to be realised dreams. Perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes, Veronica Henry and Lucy Diamond.

A heartwarming story of friendship
I’ve read all Lucy Dillon’s books and loved all of them but this one touched me. I loved the beautiful friendship between Lorna and Joyce that grew over time to such a depth. Joyce’s passing was so moving and realistic that it had me in floods of tears reliving my dad’s passing last year.
The description of the Yarnstorm was wonderful - I could picture it vividly. It’s such a great idea and should be recreated somewhere- it made me want to learn to knit!
