‘Made me sob my heart out... heartbreaking.’ The Writing Garnet
Helen knows exactly how many stitches to hem a gown, the best type of silk for summer and how to make any woman look beautiful… what she doesn’t know is how to fix her own broken heart.
Helen Whittaker’s beloved husband died three years ago. She misses him every moment of every day. The only thing that eases her pain is her job at The White Gallery – a gorgeous boutique tucked away in her tumbledown, wisteria-covered cottage in the English countryside.
Helen doesn’t know how to ask for help – not even from her own daughter, who feels so distant since it happened. Helen doesn’t even know she needs saving… but this summer everything is going to change…
Sometimes life’s unexpected twists can change everything in a moment. Sometimes heartbreak is the only way you can begin to heal. And sometimes second chances can be found in the most unlikely of places.
An unforgettable and emotional book-club read about family, love and life’s unexpected second chances. If you love Jojo Moyes, Nancy Thayer and Mary Alice Monroe, you will adore this unputdownable summer page-turner.
