'Love, humour, family and hope - the perfect ingredients for a summer read' Debbie Johnson `Dramatic and fun!' My Weekly Irresistible, feel-good summer fiction, from Top 10 bestseller Jenny Oliver ***Shortlisted for The Golsboro Books Contemporary Romantic Novel Award*** The house where Stella and her sister Amy grew up never changes - the red front door, the breath-taking view over the Cornish coast, her parents in their usual spots on the sofa.
Except this summer, things feel a little different... Stella's father is nowhere to be seen, yet her mother - in suspiciously new Per Una jeans - seems curiously unfazed by his absence, and more eager to talk about her mysterious dog-walking buddy Mitch. Stella's sister Amy has returned home with a new boyfriend she can barely stand and a secret to hide, and Stella's husband Jack has something he wants to get off his chest too.
Even Frank Sinatra, the dog, has a guilty air about him. This summer, change is in the air for the Whitethorns... Warm, funny and gloriously feel-good, this is the perfect summer read for fans of Veronica Henry and Milly Johnson. Praise for Jenny Oliver: `This book made me want to fly to Spain and dance on the beach with a glass of sangria in my hand.
The perfect summer read.' Sarah Morgan `Brilliantly written, this is packed full of humour and there is a wonderful thread of love...
A perfect holiday read.' The Sun `Heartwarming, funny and wonderfully observed, The House We Called Home explores one family's wake-up call with wit and wisdom.
Jenny Oliver's characters are so real and relatable they could just walk off the page.' Fiona Harper
