Publisher Description

She hasn’t left her house in five years. Can love unlock the door?

It’s been 1,825 days since Fiona Dexter last set foot outside 14 Wellington Drive.

She knows she’ll never sit on the beach to watch the sunset.

Laugh with her family at the café around the corner.

Or fall in love.

But when single mother Bethany, from the house next door, shows up with two-year-old Evie, Fiona knows she has to help.

As Fiona dances with Evie in the kitchen, and talks with Bethany late into the night, she realises it’s time to face her past. But will sharing her secrets set her free, or close her off from the world forever?

The perfect hopeful and heart-warming read we all need! It reminds us that life continues no matter where we are, and that living is all about finding someone to share the journey with. Fans of Jojo Moyes, Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain will love this emotional and uplifting story.
